Your workforce is anywhere but stationed at the office, is your system keeping pace with the increasing agility of your workforce?

Telework. Home-based work. Global workforce. Office space is shrinking; while more and more connections are being made to ensure continuous productivity of the remote workforce.  This trend is increasing, especially with the government pushing the telework initiative to ensure business continuity in times of crises.

While the technology exists to support the remote and mobile workforce, security of the system and the information it carries continues to be a worrisome point. This web conference examines the solutions that will keep the organization’s hardware and data protected, even as it opens up the system to a more decentralized information sharing.

Take away points include:

  • How IT partners with HR to develop the backbone for the remote workforce – How can IT contribute to this renewed teleworking drive in the context of disaster preparedness and business continuity?
  • Anticipating security breaches and network vulnerabilities
  • Current security measures: Network tools, policies, procedures
  • Lessons learned
