FACC-NY: The Challenges to Remote Work #3: Cybersecurity & Cloud Infrastructure

March 4 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm EST

Join us for a three part series which will address the challenges to remote work from the point of view of employers, employees and cybersecurity with a specific focus on the implications for the banking and financial sector.

Professionally, 2020 highlighted the precarity of jobs, the disparity between remote-enabled teams, those whose jobs could not be done virtually, and those whose companies were ill-equipped for the transition. During this three-part series we will break down three facets of the future of work, from three unique perspectives: employers, employees and a focus on cybersecurity. Each panel discussion will convene innovators who are actively challenging the status quo to build the workplace of tomorrow, today.

➤ Part 1, Wednesday, February 3rd: Employers 

Key topics: Retention schemes, maintaining company culture, productivity gains, legal and financial implications of a remote workforce.

➤ Part 2, Thursday, February 18th: Employees 

Key topics: Job portability, collective bargaining and worker’s voice, upskilling, maintaining your career trajectory, the future of international careers, wellbeing and cultural adaptability.

➤ Part 3, Thursday, March 4th: Employers 

Key topics: “Digital by Default” (remote-only offices), specific implications for the financial sector, protecting your data, security of IoT devices, VPNs.
