COVID-19 has transformed telehealth from a point of convenience to a tool of necessity. Healthcare organizations have been forced to rapidly scale up virtual visits, remote patient monitoring and other telehealth services as patients are unable or unwilling to visit brick-and-mortar locations. This has put unprecedented stress on healthcare networks, stretching their capacity like never before, and it is likely the new normal. During this webinar, industry experts will discuss how hospital technology networks are coping and their predictions for the future, including insights from NewYork—Presbyterian Hospital and its NYP OnDemand digital health program.

The U.S. Small Business Administration launched the $349 billion Paycheck Protection Program (PPP), a business loan program enacted under the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security (CARES) Act. Designed to serve small businesses with 500 or fewer employees, along with the self-employed, sole proprietors, and freelance and gig workers, the PPP is meant to provide immediate relief to small businesses through low-interest loans for payroll and overhead expenses, with the possibility of loan forgiveness. This webinar explores the facts on PPP: eligibility requirements, considerations for whether PPP is right for your business, along with other government programs designed to help keep your business running under these difficult circumstances.

Cybercriminals love a crisis. Amid the COVID-19 outbreaks, companies are even more vulnerable than usual to cyberattacks. As more business owners move operations completely online and larger organizations are directing employees to work from home, remote work means a rise in the number of devices employees are using and an increase in the use of online conferencing tools, letting hackers cast a much wider net in which to snare potential targets. Watch this webinar to learn how cybercriminals are targeting businesses, what new challenges the COVID-19 crisis presents, an overview of common threat types, and steps companies are taking to mitigate cybersecurity risks during workplace and business disruption.

This panel discussion examines the three phases of managing your brand through a crisis: at its inception, as it grows and peaks, and, finally, as your brand emerges from the disruption.
