Dynamic Work – Securely Enabling the Nomadic Workforce via Zero Trust
Over the last few months the reality has set in – post pandemic, work will be something you do, not somewhere you go. We call this “Dynamic Work.” It’s more than just letting employees work from home and ensuring they have the necessary tools to do so. It’s rethinking how and where we hire as an organization, how our offices are designed, our global employee engagement and experiences. To fully enable and realize this scenario, a zero-trust approach to security will be required.
But, what are the security risks of the worker operating in a perimeter free environment? What are the tools and technologies that are needed to bring this new reality to fruition? And, how can zero trust lead to this new way of working?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on how the journey to Dynamic Work can be safely navigated.
Discussion topics will include:
- How do we plan for a dynamic work environment that meets the needs of the post-COVID-19 employee?
- How can a zero trust roadmap lead us to a place where employees can work securely, irrespective of location?
- What are the risks of employees transitioning dynamically from one environment to another?
- What are the tools and technologies needed to protect my organization if the traditional perimeter based approach no longer applies?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Thomas Bieser, Vice President of Customer Solutions at Okta.
