In this modern ever changing world in which we live and operate, you need to have IT systems to support and run your business. For any installation there are a number of factors that need to be addressed...

• The equipment

• The environment in which it operates

• The maintenance of both of these to ensure availability and performance

• The resource to support the installation The provision of these are a continual drain on the shrinking funds available from your shrinking profit margins, that are being shaved away on almost a daily basis.

IT, Technology and the Future

Dependent on the size of a company's operations, the cost of manpower can often be a bitter pill to swallow. In smaller operations the workload may not be sufficient to demand a dedicated resource to care for the IT installation, meaning the resource to hand is often lacking in ability. to provide adequate support. At the other end of the scale, the demands may stretch the resource that is available, leaving the company unable to resource new demands. In either case there is little or no ability to look to the future, and plan a course to move forward.

GDPR

In May 2018, all businesses need to be GDPR compliant, whatever the size of that business. It replaces the Data Protection Act that we have all worked to up to now.

In the press and across the Internet there is am awful lot of confusion, spreading FUD (fear, uncertainty and doubt), It is not, for those old enough to have been there, another Y2K type problem. You do, however, need to understand how it affects you, and what you need to do to ensure that you are compliant.

First of all, you need to understand what this regulation is about.

And then run through an audit of your business to identify any areas where you need to pay some attention.

You can do it yourself easily enough; but will that give you the peace of mind, and answer all of those gnawing questions that leave a feeling of uncertainty in your mind?

 

Data Protection

Under the Data Protection Act 1998 (DPA) you must:

· use personal information fairly and lawfully;

· collect only the information necessary for a specific purpose(s);

· ensure it is relevant, accurate and up to date;

· only hold as much as you need, and only for as long as you need it;

· allow the subject of the information to see it on request; and

· keep it secure.

Useful Utilities

How do you differentiate between the plethora of 'must have' utilities that the internet throws at you, especially when you find that the one you like is only a taster and you need to pay for the real product that might do what you want?
