Since many of us started working from home, there has been a rapid increase in the number of businesses and individuals using digital technology to maintain some level of ‘business as usual’ amid the uncertainty.
Thinking proactively and creatively is essential to business success, but it is also crucial to make informed decisions regarding digital technology so that your consumers, employees and business are protected in the long-term.
On Friday 1 May, Technology Lawyer Ben Travers (who leads the IP, IT and Data Protection Team at Stephens Scown LLP) will be hosting a webinar as part of Timewade’s Technology for Success webinar series on the topic of: Surviving a Digital Pivot: Digital Decisions, Real World Impact.
Many businesses are using new tools for communicating internally and externally, but may not be aware of the Terms and Conditions of the platforms they are using. Unfortunately, greater uptake in digital technology has also led to a corresponding rise in cyber crime.
Ben’s 45-minute session will give practical advice on how to make short-term digital decisions without incurring long-term negative consequences.
The webinar will look at how trading online differs from trading offline, how to ensure regulatory compliance while remote working, and how to use remote working technology without exposing your business to unnecessary risks.
Ben will be talking with Timewade’s Julian Wills about cyber security, and how to take advantage of a digital pivot without making the business vulnerable.
Ben said: “Lots of businesses have responded to the Covid-19 crisis reactively. My webinar, which builds on others in the Timewade series, aims to help businesses reflect on the digital technology they have adopted to ensure that the short-term decisions they have made do not have long-term consequences. Most of the issues we are coming across can be avoided with just a small amount of knowledge, so I hope to be able to share some of this knowledge to avoid these common issues.”
Once registered, attendees can send their own questions for Ben to answer.
