Reducing IT Downtime this Christmas

Christmas can be the most vital time of the year for many businesses, especially retailers, but whether it reaps the rewards of success, or the pressures of failure will in some part be down to how prepared they are to deal with the added demands of this particularly volatile time in the business calendar. For those businesses that rely heavily on technology and hardware, the pressure to perform at a level that meets and exceeds customer expectations can often make the difference when it comes to attracting customer spend. IT downtime simply isn’t an option. read more

Businesses Face New Security Challenge from the Internet of Things

Digital Landfills: The Best Days of Big Data are Yet to Come

It’s been described as Digital Exhaust – the small pieces of transactional information left behind by people, applications and interactions.

This has largely come from its spectacularly rapid rise in valuation 12 months ago when it raced past the USD1,000 mark, to the crash and disappearance of MtGox, one of the key bitcoin exchanges, followed by a gradual decline in value so that it is now ‘only’ worth about £234 today. read more


Thinking Beyond the Tick-Box

The value of compliance is often questioned by senior executives who perceive it as an obligatory tick-box exercise that rewards little and subsequently lacks investment from the board.

The only thing that you can be certain of in life is, that nothing is certain. For thousands of years the human race has tried to prove otherwise. People have attempted to predict the future with tarot cards, tealeaves and by staring into crystal balls. It’s highly unlikely that we’ll ever be able to see exactly what lies ahead, but thanks to significant technological advances, what we can do is use knowledge of the past and the present to drive a desired future outcome. In the field of IT security, today’s threat landscape is not the same one that we faced when the first PCs were introduced, but new technology creates an exciting opportunity for the security world to strengthen defences. And this is vital in a world where cyber-attacks are becoming increasingly sophisticated and targeted. read more
