Digital Transformation: What is it? What are the benefits and risks? How has COVID impacted the subject for good or ill? Guest host Daimon Geopfert of RSM presents this November Cybersecurity Advisory episode, exploring what "Digital Transformation" means in the age of COVID. Joined by Jerry Ravi and Greg Fritsky of EisnerAmper, the conversation touches on the broader subject of how the pandemic has affected the way organisations plan and prioritise their transformation efforts.

  • What are the most common areas of a business to be targeted for transformation?

  • How has this impacted the pace and approach to digital transformation?
  • What are the risks of going ahead with digital transformation? What are the risks of not doing so?
  • Other considerations for business, operations, regulatory, security, personnel, and more.
