Security & Privacy in a Covid-19 World

Technology Executive Council | Security & Data

From medical data to corporate security, our information has never been more vulnerable. Insights, actionable ideas, and a discussion of concrete challenges in a private forum.

Key Points

  • The government and private sector have worked closely together for many years.
  • Because we've gone from the government introducing the technologies that transform the security landscape to private sectors introducing that new tech, the responsibility of thinking about how our actions affect the security landscape tend to fall on those sectors.
  • The public-private relationship, at its best, works in both directions.

Managing Workforce Change & Challenges Amid the Covid-19 Pandemic

Workforce Executive Council | Crisis Management & Resilience

Exploration of the latest on the Covid-19 and what companies should be mindful of during this pandemic.

Key Points

  • There is power in having teams that can focus on day-to-day operations during a crisis, but it is also critical to have a separate team that can look at the bigger picture and make decisions about the months ahead.
  • Most companies are making the same kinds of transitions. "We're in the same boat," said Lynn Oldham of Zoom about transitioning employees to remote work. Processes such as hiring, culture training, and equipment distribution are all key planning concerns currently.
