Prepare Your Business for IT in 2021 with These Free Webinars

blog cybersecurity news

Knowledge is one of the most powerful tools a business can have when it comes to protecting against cyberthreats and technology problems. As a provider of managed IT and computer services in Dayton, Ohio and across the US, we know firsthand that the best cybersecurity strategies and digital protocols can still be undermined by human error and uninformed actions.  

That doesn’t mean everyone on your staff needs to have advanced IT knowledge.  

However, educating employees on basic threats and procedures, regardless of their position, is critical in today’s technology-fueled office space. This keeps your business better protected, empowers employees to take more responsibility, and allows you to successfully implement modern tech strategies and infrastructure across your company.  

We can help with this. 

Expedient Technology Solutions is hosting a series of free webinars designed around the IT needs of modern businesses. Starting in April, these webinars will take place on the third Wednesday of each month. To join, all you need to do is register.  

You are more than welcome to invite your employees to attend as well! We will also be recording each session and making it available for you to view at your convenience, but you will still need to register or email us directly to request the specific recording.  

Here is a breakdown for each webinar:

Being Prepared for the Future of Office Operations 

Retaining remote-friendly operations should be at the top of your cybersecurity resolutions for 2021. With everything that happened in 2020, office culture will likely never be the same. Employees have grown accustomed to working from their homes. Though most still want a shared office that’s available to them, they also want the flexibility to work remotely when they need to.  

Even as physical offices reopen, a hybrid model of working on and offsite will likely become the new norm.  

All of these changes mean that now is the perfect time to reevaluate your existing strategies and digital systems. We’ve created these webinars to help you do just that. Even if you can’t attend the live webinars, you can still get access to them by registering or emailing us directly.
