Tools that government organisations are using for working remotely

Choose from a list of cloud-based tools that government organisations have adopted for remote working — but always assess the risk first.

Before you adopt a cloud-based tool   

You must consider the business context and the need to do your own risk assessment.

This is particularly important if using the tool involves classified information or has privacy implications for the customer or data.
