From the LIS helpdesk

Some of our more memorable helpdesk calls:  “I am on top of a mountain in Nepal and the internet is patchy but I need to work on my laptop” – sorted in 20 mins; “iplayer isn’t working from my hotel. Will my company vpn let me watch the footie” – sorted in 10 mins (it was the MD and he had a TV license!); “I need to work from home tonight. Help” – it took an hour but we got there.

As the popularity of remote working continues to spread, workers today can collaborate across cities, countries and even multiple time zones. How does this change office dynamics? And how can we make sure that all employees, both at headquarters and at home, feel connected?

GDPR News

GDPR news – who received the first fines and why?

If you have still not completed (or started) your GDPR journey you can always contact LIS for assistance. We will deal with the technicalities of system changes needed and highlight any business issues you need to consider.  Having recently reviewed our client base for GDPR we see some clients with their heads still firmly buried in the sand. The bad news is that it is not going away! Worryingly even some of our local government clients are refusing to move on clear significant breaches of the GDPR rules on grounds of cost.  If your business has not completed a review and made the changes needed then please don’t wait – you don’t want to appear on this list!
