Build your online reputation with engaging emails

Luke Wingfield Digby[Luke Wingfield Digby] Online reputation management has come to mean managing the perception of yourself, or your brand, on the internet and especially social media.

When it comes to security, size doesn't matter

Doros Hadjizenonos[Doros Hadjizenonos] IT security has no respect for size. A hacking group can have hundreds or thousands of members globally, like anonymous, or just a handful, like the group that mounted the successful Eurograbber attacks against banks in 2012 - but in either case, the disruption to the target organisations is equally severe.

Outsourcing vs temporary staff could make all the difference to your database

Jaroslav Cerny[Jaroslav Cerny] Economic conditions are a very pressing challenge for organisations of all sizes around the world, resulting in squeezed budgets. One such area is IT.

However, as a result of the unique conditions in South Africa which include a massive skills shortage, and in an effort to save money, some organisations are turning to temporary staffing solutions to fill critical posts. This can be a costly mistake.
