Here is our May 2018 Newsletter:

Well, it looks like spring has finally sprung!  We now have warmer and longer days, we all seem to have more energy and there is that sense of optimism and the desire to do ‘spring cleaning’. Sometimes that spring cleaning is getting out the BBQ or giving the car a good cleaning … we should also think of doing that to some of  our business plans and processes! That could be in the form of picking one process a week and asking ‘why do we do it this way?’ – or – maybe we focus on one part of the business – like cybersecurity – and asking questions around how the security landscape has changed and how awareness, processes and tools have to adapt as a result.

To help you with these we have collected some helpful articles and videos which are listed below. However, if you would like help with any of these initiatives, please call us @ 1-800-263-8433 and we can assist. Enjoy!
