The Platform

From the dominance of social media sites like Twitter and Facebook (which is now the most popular website in the world) to the onslaught of cool, mobile-friendly devices like iPad and Cius, there is no doubt that the way we work, live and play is changing. But exactly how is it changing and what does it mean for your business? How can you arm your employees with tools they need to be effective in an ‘always-on’, mobile world? With an estimated 14 billion mobile devices connected to the internet today and no slow down in sight, one thing’s for sure. We better figure it out – and fast.

  4. There will be a lot more questions in the future. With so many mobile devices the actual mobile internet bandwidth is over capacity. Additional the smartphones has more common attack possibilities in comparison to the old phones.

    Your live session will be very interesting for me and will attend.

  5. Can’t wait to see or hear these results, a good friend of mine owns a North Carolina Printing company and this would be effecting him directly. Employees will always have distractions but if we can control it in the work place we need to, especially if it is being abused!

  6. A surprising number of young people are not concerned about security at all. They want their information out there. It is turning into a scary world out there. I hope we can all keep our heads.
