2018 Business Tech Review, Innovation Balanced with Security

Improved remote worker access, manufacturing robotics and information governance among top 2018 business tech developments–in a new article from eMazzanti Technologies

HOBOKEN, N.J., Dec. 6, 2018 /PRNewswire-PRWeb/ — A NYC area IT consultant and MSP reviews some of the top business tech developments of the year in a new article on the eMazzanti Technologies website. Innovations in business technology were offset in 2018 by increasing cyber-security threats and concerns as well as new privacy regulations and an increased emphasis on information governance.

The informative article cites improved access for remote workers, a surge in manufacturing robotics and advances in mobile POS as a few of the top business tech innovations. In addition, the continuing rise in cyber-attacks and the GDPR data privacy regulations are presented as supporting a balanced approach to innovation and cyber-security in the coming year.

“2018 brought both increased challenges and opportunities,” stated Jennifer Mazzanti, CEO, eMazzanti Technologies. “Those businesses that protect valuable business assets while embracing new technology stand to gain the most in the coming year.”

Below are a few excerpts from the article, “2018 Business Tech Review: Innovation Balanced with Security.”

“From a surge in manufacturing robots and mobile POS to improved remote access, 2018 brought a host of advances in business tech. At the same time, cyber-attacks continued to make headlines, highlighting the need for more robust cyber-security.”

Cyber-Security a Global Risk

“In January, the World Economic Forum published its annual Global Risks Report. For the first time, cyber-attacks ranked among the top five global risks, placing third behind extreme weather and natural disasters.”

Privacy and Information Governance

“In May, the provisions of the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) went into effect. Regulatory agencies gained the power to impose stiff fines on non-compliant organizations. As a result, organizations across the world scrambled to implement protections for personal data.”

“Data security is just one piece of the information governance pie. With the fast pace of data creation, organizations are turning to business tech to help them categorize, store and retrieve information more efficiently.”

A Business Tech Roadmap for 2019

Building on the lessons of the last year, organizations must plan carefully as they approach the opportunities and challenges of business technology. eMazzanti Technologies advises business leaders to revisit their security solutions regularly, assemble a comprehensive plan for information governance and to innovate with purpose.

With a wide variety of technology and security solutions available, it can be difficult to determine which options make the most sense for an organization. A forward-thinking IT services provider can help outline a plan to implement the right technology at the right time, while safeguarding critical business assets.
