Your firewall, antivirus, and log management tools are no longer enough to keep you safe. As of 2018, 85% of all companies allowed users to bring in their own devices for work. That means that they’re potentially doing work on devices with security solutions that you haven’t personally verified. In addition, seven out of ten employees work remotely at least once a week. In other words, they’re working in places that aren’t protected by your firewall – or any firewall at all, for that matter. When your employees work remotely using devices that they choose themselves, they may be more productive – but they’re certainly more vulnerable to attackers. ...

Operating an eCommerce business can be very rewarding, but building it can be pretty challenging. Product development, advertising, servicing customer needs; there’s a lot that needs to be attended to.

Corporate real estate can be commercial, retail, industrial or even residential. The purpose of corporate real estate assets is to meet the financial, functional and future flexibility needs of a business. Corporate real estate leaders today have to go beyond the traditional role which has been primarily financial. Given that real estate is usually one of the largest costs for an organization, the simplistic view that looks at reducing costs may seem like a solid approach. But a more strategic view takes into account other factors, such as the revenue-boosting potential of real estate. Determine goals What do you want to accomplish by buying corporate ...

In this video, Prof. S. Johnson presents the award-winning paper titled "Who Contributes Knowledge? Embeddedness and Marginality in Online Communities", which adresses the tension between the "community of practice" and the "open innovation" perspectives pertaining online community research. The contribution of the paper lies in the combination of the concepts of "epistemic marginality" from topic modeling and "network embeddedness" from social network analysis. To conduct their analysis, the authors rely on the entire participation dataset produced on the open platform Stack Exchanges from 2010 to 2016. Enjoy the video! Note: this video is part of ...

If you’re entering into an IVA then your insolvency practitioner will work closely with you to ensure you have enough money left each month to live on.  However, it’s also a good time to start making cut-backs and here are 10 top tips on how to make life that little bit easier:   If you’re a drinker or smoker then now’s a good time to give up. Non-essential spending won’t have been included into your monthly budget and it’s no great secret that bad habits can be costly (in every sense of the word), so why not make a change for the better and kick them into touch?   Most families are able to cut back on the weekly (or monthly) shop.
