The Path to GDPR Compliance

The Path to GDPR Compliance

There are big changes coming for organizations that conduct business in, or store and collect data tied to citizens of the European Union (EU). From data protection and breach reporting to governance documentation, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) calls for businesses in any location that hold data on Europeans to be more efficient and accountable with their IT operations – or face significant penalties.

How Managed Service Providers Can Help You Save Time & Money When Migrating to Office 365

There are many benefits to migrating to Office 365 and not just through cost savings. More specifically, businesses can take advantage of the expandable data management that comes with a cloud hosted environment. However, a poorly planned Office 365 migration can lead to ballooning costs and wasted IT resources. So, let’s talk about how to pop that balloon and make sure your business is operating efficiently and on budget while migrating to and operating in the cloud.

Trying to quantify the number of items before migrating your email to Office 365 can seem overwhelming, especially for a team that has not experienced a migration.
