February 2020 | Newsletter|In the past, attending college meant attending in person – which created significant barriers for working professionals needing to balance school and a full-time job. Today, online education programmes are plentiful, making it easy for students to plan around their work and family schedules. But before online learners can succeed in the virtual classroom, they’ll first need to do their homework.
February 2020 | Newsletter| Business success will only come if your people have the right tools for the job. And when it comes to computing hardware, a one-size-fits-all approach will simply not cut it. Just as a tradesperson needs the specialised tools relevant to their trade, so office workers require the right computing equipment for their particular roles. Professionals such as engineers, architects, scientists, developers, data analysts, videographers and CAD and graphic designers will likely require much more computing power than your average employee. Here’s why you need to hook them up with a high-end workstation computer.

February 2020 | Newsletter| When it comes to data security at schools, it’s people — not systems — that represent the greatest threat. Firewalls, antivirus software and even the most sophisticated security measures can only go so far. If a staff member loses a smartphone, tablet or thumb drive, all bets are off: if the device ends up in the wrong hands, you could be dealing with problems far bigger than a missing piece of hardware. However, it’s not just physical loss that can put data at risk. Schools are attractive targets for cybercriminals, since they hold student, financial and other data that can be used for a variety of crimes, from stealing money to identity theft. Moreover, it only takes a moment of inattention to cause a problem — like when a school’s administrative assistant clicked on an email link and unleashed a four-day cyberattack.
