Webinar 3 - Working like a pro: How can remote employees protect data from home?

Webinar: Wed, Jun 2, 2021 2:00 - 3:00PM BST

Where we work has changed, it’s no longer where you go, it’s what you do. 

However, the rush to the home office left many employees working from home in environments that weren’t designed with cybersecurity in mind, leaving organisations vulnerable to data breaches.

Join Kensington for the 3rd webinar in the “Work Like A Pro” series which will explore some new research on data protection in the home office, and some insights on how organisations can make the home office as cyber secure as head office.

We’ll be giving away 3x £100 vouchers to random attendees, so make sure you register today!
