Brexit Looms

As Brexit staggers ever closer, banks forecast the worst year for business since 2009, what are your thoughts about the state of the economy?

It’s a tough world for business right now…what with Brexit, Pensions, GDPR, NMW, 2020 and plenty more.  Increased taxes, levies and regulation and an increasing US style litigious culture all seem to be against providing employment and making a profit.  LIS can sort out the 2020 problem for you but for the rest we, like you, are looking for the missing paddle! If you think a more efficient IT system might help, contact LIS or if you prefer book a phone meeting to discuss the options.

Data Breach? Now What?

How would you handle a data breach? You now have lots of problems to consider besides the actual breach itself. How do you keep the ICO happy? What about GDPR? How will you tell those affected? Will this impact on your future sales?

Far, far better not to be exposed in the first place.  Contact LIS for a review of your setup and any specific risks and mitigation. Why not create a plan now so you have a process to follow when it all hits the fan? Why not consider improving your processes and security so the risk of a data breach is reduced or eliminated?
