The Pandemic-Ready IT Playbook

Written by Cameron Martel

August 6, 2020

Episode Summary

The pandemic hit and businesses were forced to react. Some had plans, others acted on instinct, and  many are still trying to keep their head above water.  

While we may not have had an IT “playbook” for the first wave, we can certainly be better prepared for the next. 

This roundtable discussion, featuring guests from High Point Networks and SonicWall, is for businesses looking for their Pandemic 2.0 IT playbook. As more regions close once again and Covid-19 cases spike across North America, the need for understanding and direction has never been greater.

Discussion Takeaways:

This is a candid conversation on how to respond to a second (or third) wave of Covid, with experts diving into topics such as:  

  • How do I empower my team to work and be productive while working remotely? 
  • How do I keep my company and client data secure in a remote environment? 
  • How can I ensure operational continuity in the event of a labor or local market disruption? 
  • How do I protect my team, my customers, and my business from Covid?
