You want to innovate. To transform your organisation with new services and help achieve the top-line. Security and compliance can seem like endless red tape and bureaucracy that simply get in the way.
This time last year we were all bustling around ensuring that we were following best practice in preparation for GDPR. As with any compliance exercise it is always good to review what exists and test your assumptions. And whilst you may be hoping that Brexit may change everything, the UK 2018 Data Protection Act enshrines the key principles of GDPR and therefore very little has changed for UK Business.
Compliance is often thought of as a burden – little more than a tick-box exercise to ensure your organisation meets regulatory and legislative standards. However, that’s looking at it the wrong way. What it actually provides is a statement of your organisational values and is an investment in future growth. It’s a vital part of ensuring that your organisation moves in the desired direction and can enable you to create added value for your business.

At this time of year I’m always asked to look into my crystal ball and predict the IT trends that will make the most impact in the next 12 months. Here are my four top tips.
I’m a Service Desk Consultant. That means that I handle end-user support. I’m part of the escalation channel when we hit difficult challenges that aren’t a quick fix.
