What is your favorite eLearning Nano and why?

My favourite Nano title is Secure Video ConferencingIt opened my eyes to vulnerabilities with remote working and how to mitigate riskAs organisations adjusted to the “new” normal due to the impact of the pandemic, this video was, and is still, very relevant. The detail is very interesting and educational, and the message is delivered in a simple and effective manner.
