Data Loss Prevention – why it matters

Data Loss Prevention (DLP) Every organisation in the UK that handles data digitally must register with the Information Commissioner’s Office and take reasonable steps to protect the integrity of their data.

Cloud Security – a different perspective

Taking a leaf from Kendo when talking about Cloud Security Kendo is ‘The Way of The Sword’ – a martial art heavily rooted in Buddhism and seeks to build a culture of striving for improvement.

Not investing in Digital Transformation? That’s the problem.

Digital Transformation is your future 60-80% of a company’s average IT budget goes into keeping legacy technology running.
