Plans are well under way for the next JSPC roadshow on 24th November and with so many IT issues underpinning key news stories and organisational challenges, we’re expecting it to be a busy one. We’re focusing on the issues of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) and safeguarding. These are two of the hottest topics in IT and, together with the recent spate of cyber attacks on organisations of all sizes, make up some of the key concerns of our clients.

The three issues are interlinked. Good data protection practices form the foundation for cyber security and an awareness of safeguarding techniques and precautions are invaluable for ensuring that both children and sensitive data about them is maintained properly. Used correctly, the right information can help to protect children and allow information to be shared between professionals but it needs to be secure and well managed to be of value. Many people are focused on the new rules for the GDPR, but in areas such as safeguarding and cyber attacks, it is not so much government rulings but an evolving threat that needs to be addressed. This is why it is important to stay up to date; legislation, technology and the environment are changing all the time and it can be hard to keep up. That’s why we created this interactive event, with plenty of time for question and answer sessions and hands-on demonstrations.

We’re also lining up some brilliant guest speakers and gathering information to present some helpful case studies which may help you apply some of the latest developments in hardware, wireless and single-server solutions to your organisation. We appreciate that you’re taking time out of your work day and so we’re intent on making it great value – and given the expertise on show, we’re looking forward to learning something new ourselves. The only way to keep up in the world of IT is to always keep learning. We look forward to seeing you in November.
