Expert urges organisations to leverage technology for emerging needs


With the emerging trend of working remotely occasioned by COVID-19, the need for organisations to constantly be on the pulse of ensuring technology solutions employed constantly revolve along with their everchanging needs has been stressed.

Indeed, working remotely has brought with it the threat of ‘new and improved’ cyber-attacks from unrelenting hackers and the like.


Hence, organisations, people need to know and ensure their virtual conversations are private and secure.

Head, Modern Workplace and Security at Microsoft Middle East and Africa, Emerging Markets, Mohamed El Nemr, who stated these, added that the world of work has been greatly challenged by the COVID-19 in the past year.

His words: “We are more than 12 months into the global pandemic and many of us have not seen our colleagues face-to-face in months.

El Nemr, said at Microsoft, privacy and security have always remained top of mind and it remains our commitment to organisations and individuals – not only during this challenging time but always.


“With what I am sure started as a bumpy ride with a lot of uncertainty – working from the comfort of our own homes has now become the norm and collaboration, done remotely is now a well-oiled machine and crucial for daily internal and client-facing interaction.”

He hinted that Microsoft has continued to be innovative and that the firm places the specific scenarios of customers and individuals at the centre of the desired outcome.

According to him, this naturally includes ensuring the online safety and privacy of all involved – particularly concerning the daily interactions that take place in meetings.

“Our approach to privacy has always been grounded in our commitment to giving individuals transparency over the collection, use, and distribution of their data. Our Teams offering allows users to create tailored environments to suit meeting preferences across the board,” he added.
