How is your business or employer responding to the impact of the COVID19 pandemic?
What policies, procedures, training, IT infrastructure and technologies has your business or employer deployed, or are planning to deploy, for employees to keep working remotely from home?
How secure are these solutions and is the company at risk?
Business in Japan (BIJ) present the first in a series of Webinars as we adapt to the SARS-CoV-2 virus and the sickness it causes COVID19.
Join Rohit Kapoor, VP of Tekmonks, Rochelle Kopp, Managing Principal of Japan Intercultural Consulting, Benny Ketelslegers senior Insikt threat intelligence researcher at Recorded Future, and myself for a discussion on how businesses in Japan can prepare, and what risks exist that they may not have thought about. We’ll also discuss why Japanese companies are resistant to adopting remote working arrangements, and how to help Japanese managers get more comfortable with them.
ALL ATTENDEES go into a Draw for a Bluetooth Headset, perfect for Working from Home, School from home and video calls with family and friends!
Webinar Password will be sent to all RSVP'd attendees - if you're reading this late and want to attend, contact me on LinkedIn, Facebook, here on Doorkeeper, or
