PITTSBURGH, PA – March 31, 2021 – Black Box, a global solutions integrator, has scheduled its next monthly “Box Talks” webinar for 2 p.m. EDT on Thursday, April 8. During the free webinar, titled “One Year Later: Mastering the Business and Technical Challenges of Remote Work,” an expert panel will host an informative, dynamic discussion of the strategies that can transform a company’s existing legacy system into an optimized and resilient network that supports the new hybrid work environment.

Webinar panellists will include Joe Gallagher, cybersecurity partner account manager, Cisco; Kevin Mayo, solutions architect, cybersecurity, Black Box; Ken Mage, enterprise account executive, Black Box; and Randi Roger, senior product manager, Black Box. During the 45-minute webinar, the panellists will cover the following topics:

• The problem with choosing not to secure remote workers.
• Strategies for making the hybrid work model secure and resilient.
• Best practices for halting cyberattacks and securing remote work holistically.
• The relationship between secure remote work and hidden compliance/regulatory requirements.
• How a leading health care provider implemented an ideal secure remote work solution.

“A year after the workplace was turned upside down by a pandemic, enterprises are beginning to define, design, implement and support a new hybrid work environment — one in which work is done in a remote/in-office combination,” said Randi Roger, senior product manager, edge networking, Black Box. “In this webinar, we’ll cover some of the business concerns and challenges of this approach. Regarding security, we’ll look at how it relates to hidden compliance and regulatory requirements; how to give remote employees an outstanding, collaborative experience while also protecting networks from attacks; and how to provide safe, secure office spaces.”
