Cyber security: How to reduce risks associated with working remotely

Cyber security: How to reduce risks associated with working remotely

We work face to face, we meet our clients in person, we make paper notes to file and share, we collaborate with our colleagues within our offices, chamber and courts.

Now in the current world of restrictions we cannot do this. Instead, we are using video conferencing, email and electronic notes to conduct business. We are meeting our clients and appearing in court via remote connections, working from distributed locations. But how do we maintain our security and meet our professional obligations in this new world?

This session will provide insights on how to reduce your risks whilst working remotely.
