Microsoft Teams: Collaboration in the Modern Workplace

Microsoft Teams: Collaboration in the Modern Workplace

For any organization, it is incredibly important to have a system in place that enables employees to be efficient and productive. In most cases, employees take it upon themselves to use applications, usually unknown by the organization, to help manage their tasks and collaborate with their teams more efficiently. This presents a big issue for organizations because their employees use unauthorized and potentially unsecured applications, which can result in the data leakage of secured documents. So, how do you enable your employees to collaborate effectively while making sure they are productive? Microsoft has you covered with their approach to the Modern Workplace and their integration of products such as Planner, OneNote, SharePoint, and many others into their collaboration tool Microsoft Teams.

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.

With May 25th, 2018 as the proposed GDPR enforcement date, you have just a few months to comply with the new (and slightly confusing) GDPR laws. Though that may seem far away, the date will come quick, as will the scrutiny into your data practices.
