Overview

Central government departments have traditionally been strongly opposed to any form of Bring Your Own Device policy, but the pandemic has set off a perfect storm of circumstances meaning it can longer be ignored.

Departments such as DWP and HMRC are seeing an unprecedented demand for their services as millions of new citizens are being put on furlough with new stay at home policies. Some traditionally desk-based staff working within the departments haven't even been able to work as they don't have laptops to work from.

What if there was a way to allow staff to use their own devices quickly and securely?

In this webinar, we'll discuss some of the key issues around remote working, including:

  • How is remote working different (apart from being – well, remote?)
  • What are the security risks around remote working?
  • What are the pros and cons of Bring Your Own Device policies?
