How to leverage technology as a competitive advantage, rather than simply as a necessary administrative overhead
Daniel Johns – ASI Solutions
In terms of the technology landscape, Finance, Procurement and IT Departments are faced with levels of unpredictability at a scale never previously experienced. The convergence of cloud computing, the proliferation of IoT devices and technology as the leading cause of disruption to businesses, provides both opportunity and risk. Successful organisations are leveraging technology as a competitive advantage, not simply as a necessary administrative overhead. However, with the millennial workforce demanding the latest tech in order to be recruited, over-stretched IT departments struggling to do more with less and keep up with tech giants as they vie for the corporate market, shifting the focus from “keeping their heads above water” to “establishing competitive advantage” is easier said than done.
In this informative session, ASI Solutions’ Daniel Johns will provide an overview of how organisations can use technology to establish a competitive advantage, as well as exploring the four key components of cyber security and what you need to know to protect your business. Just like physical security, cyber security is not a “one size fits all” solution, but there are some key components that are common to all organisations. Daniel will provide an overview of the current threats posed by ransomware, the Dark Web, and threats from within your own business. By the end of this session you will have an understanding of what best practices to put in place to reduce the ever-present risk of being breached through a cyber security attack.
