On Friday 29th May, AMCHAM T&T hosted the first webinar in its Digital Transformation Series: The Time for TECH is now!
Below are the topics covered by our 4 expert panelists.
"The COVID-19 pandemic has totally transformed the way we interact, work, live and learn. Businesses have had to alter almost every facet of operations to survive.
The most effective means of reducing virus transmission are social distancing and rigorous sanitization. And this won’t change until a vaccine is found.
So what does your business need to know in order to survive in these challenging times? Can you future-proof your business?"
Our webinar explored these questions from four perspectives:
COVID-19 is forcing many companies to speed up the timeline of their digital transformations. Until this happens, many of us have been left to utilize improvised work-spaces from our homes with unsecured networks on mobile devices to conduct business.
While all the attention has been focused on containing the spread of the virus, we cannot allow ourselves to ignore another potentially dangerous threat that can cause major harm to our businesses i.e. breaches in our online security.
