IDC and LastPass by LogMeIn Virtual Roundtable

Smart and Secure: Digital Business in the Next Normal

September 24, 2020

General Information




September 24, 2020


08:30 - 10:00 BST



The disruption brought by the COVID-19 pandemic in many cases exacerbated challenges that were already present: enablement of secure digital transformation, remote workers accessing corporate applications and data from outside a secure perimeter, and cybercriminals probing for vulnerabilities to penetrate the network. IDC has described the initial phase of pandemic response as "two years of DX in two months". From a business perspective, the tactical focus was on business continuity and business resilience.

Looking ahead, organisations are now planning strategically. What targeted investments need to be made as they return to growth? And what will the future enterprise look like in “the next normal”?

This joint IDC and LogMeIn roundtable will discuss the Future of Work – particularly from a security perspective. It will examine the importance of identity in the context of the next normal and look at indicators of where the market is going in the post-pandemic era. Finally, we will look at the growing importance of digital trust, which will underpin all aspects of digital business in the coming years.

During this Virtual Roundtable we will discuss:

  • Smart working practices spread rapidly as organisations accelerated their digital transformation plans in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. When the virus eventually recedes, which aspects of the ‘new normal’ should be retained?
  • Identity is a fundamental enabler of the trust that is necessary to build digital business. How should organisations harness identity to address digital transformation challenges and build for the future?
  • Digital trust will eventually underpin every aspect from the board to the brand, the customer base to the supplier ecosystem. What are the goals of a Trust Practice and what are the benefits of being a trusted organisation?
