    Security experts from BT
    Security will play a key role in enabling new hybrid ways of working as the world begins to re-open, with employees increasingly on the move.

    But these new models bring increased risk; multiple devices, multiple locations, multiple access points coupled with yet another morphing of the threat landscape as attackers look to take advantage of new weaknesses.

    In our next webinar in the Security Insights and Trends series we will explore:
    • the future of work and what this means for security
    • the new opportunities for attack
    • the key security priorities to keep organisations safe
    • how to balance the risk with the opportunity

  • 'Hybrid headaches webinar series' - Part 3: How do you make your voice heard? May 13 2021 2:00 pm UTC 30 mins
    Experts from BT and Cisco
    As organisations explore a hybrid workplace model, voice solutions enter an important crossroad. 89% of IT decision makers want to reduce communication costs, and legacy solutions are becoming increasingly expensive to maintain and counter-intuitive to an agile, digital strategy.

    Additionally, as people begin to work across multiple hybrid environments, what role will 5G mobile solutions play in providing greater flexibility, a superior user experience and a consistent voice no matter where they work?

  • 'Hybrid headaches' webinar series - Part 2: What is the future of the workplace? Recorded: Apr 27 2021 37 mins
    Experts from BT and Zoom
    Like many people around the world, the chances are you’re thinking about returning to your workplace later this year. But it won’t be the same as it was before. In fact, 60% of business executives believe offices will be very different post-pandemic as hybrid brings a new era for our places of work.

    However, there’s no ‘one size fits all’ approach to this new way of working. Organisations need to establish what hybrid means for them, the challenges associated with it and how their workplaces will serve the needs of their employees, now and in the future.

  • 'Hybrid headaches' webinar series - Part 1: Is choice a double-edged sword? Recorded: Apr 14 2021 23 mins
    Digital workplace experts from BT
    The average business executive uses 3.5 collaboration tools. Choice can often be seen as a privilege, particularly when it provides better opportunities in the technology space, but what if that same privilege creates a paradox? The beauty of choice, if managed correctly, can enable you to establish and fine tune a successful hybrid workplace strategy to suit the changing needs of your organisation. However, uncontrolled and ill-managed choice can become a burden to both your strategy and workforce – affecting return on investment, productivity and user experience.

    What if you could manage the paradox of choice to firmly establish your hybrid strategy and effectively enable your workforce with the right technology?
