Benefits of attending

Planning for a modern world – what does the future look like?
How can we use technology and digitalisation to support us both in the workplace and in a new more remote workplace? We will look at examples from across the sector and around the  world with organisations that have been on a digital journey and how doing this well can improve the work environment and support for colleagues.

Expectations around this were rising pre-pandemic, but the lockdown has heightened and accelerated this further. How many providers were planning for the pandemic without knowing?

Planning for a pandemic
Information security helps businesses make better decisions. Information security systems can help you to manage risk more effectively. Technology and business lines are more blurred than ever, organisations now need to be more technology focused, helping organisations do what they need to do. It is no longer a standalone tool (or shouldn’t be).

Planning for a pandemic is all about managing risks. So, how do you manage technology risks? We will discuss how technology risk needs to be highlighted as a key risk on par with some other more ‘physical’ risks. This was heightened under the GDPR legislation. The webinar will also look at how we can also use this line of thinking to spot opportunities that will drive the organisation forwards and improve things for colleagues. Given the current climate and how we organisations will need to plan as we recover from the pandemic, technology will underpin a lot of this necessary thinking. Agility is key where we lack uncertainty.

We will also look at how organisations have adapted to working from home and again how the risks are managed here.

Outcomes
We will have discussions about some of the outcomes to emerge from the pandemic and how we can ensure the best of this learning can be continued moving forwards. What does the new normal look like? We need to have more effective business continuity planning, so we will discuss some ideas as to have this can be done, engaging the whole organisation.
