About This Roundtable
The COVID-19 pandemic brought changes no IT team was ready for: employees were sent home, customer interaction models changed, and cloud transformation efforts abruptly accelerated. Cloudflare recently commissioned Forrester Consulting to explore the impact of 2020 disruptions on security strategy and operations among companies of all sizes. To do so, they surveyed 317 global security decision makers from around the world.

Join our guest Forrester VP, Principal Analyst, Chase Cunningham, and Cloudflare Go-To-Market Leader, Brian Parks, for an in-depth discussion of the survey results, followed by practical guidance for next year’s planning.
