Disasters and unexpected disruptions can impact a business negatively. Generally, these incidents don’t hinder long-term business operations, but when they do, can your business continuity plan (BCP) handle it?
During a pandemic like COVID-19, businesses are adopting and managing the consequences of “work from home” culture. Today’s technologies indeed make it possible for organizations to enable remote working, but they also gave birth to a myriad of security concerns. That’s why businesses need a robust set of controls to ensure business resilience. They require solid planning, clear policies, and excellent communication. With this presentation, learn some of the potential deficiencies of a business continuity plan and ways to address them while managing the security and productivity of your remote workforce.
- Major challenges while handling a remote working situation using regular BCP.
- How to build a secure environment for employees working from home to ensure confidentiality and availability.
