Is the workplace ready for Voice Assistants?

January 10, 2020

Technology is becoming more cognitive, more reactive and most importantly, more human. As tech evolves to meet our every need, we need it to learn and grow on its own; to work with us to create a more effective outcome. So, how exactly is technology changing? And how is it helping us in the workplace? Some specific types of technology have come to help, or even replace, traditional human roles. Virtual or AI assistants (Artificial Intelligence Assistants), for example, can aid us in our everyday working lives, and are often taking on a more human presence by cracking jokes or reacting in a more colloquial way.

Human Layer Security For Dummies

whitePaper | December 31, 2019

An organization’s human layer is its people. However, ­people are unpredictable and often cause data breaches — either accidentally or maliciously — as they create, store, and share increasing volumes of unstructured data. And this risk that people pose to sensitive information is only growing. The traditional security perimeter has disappeared with the adoption of cloud technology and flexible working practices that see staff, partners, and clients accessing data and applications via a range of devices and from multiple locations (potentially even from across the globe).
