Today's technology environment is difficult for even the most prepared firms, and the thankless job of the IT partner or IT manager is often made even more challenging due to factors often outside that leader's control. When combined with workload compression, staffing issues, client fee pressures, and expanded data security concerns, it's hard to know what you should expect from your IT staff, software publishers, and outside IT providers. This session will discuss at a high level many of the technology changes taking place in the profession now, and will help decision makers develop strategies for current and future technology trends affecting practitioners.
Specific learning objectives include:
• List at least two major technology shifts taking place which affect practitioners
• Define hosted, hybrid cloud, public cloud, managed services, and in-house IT, and explain the differences between each option
• Explain what is meant by ransomware, phishing, and data loss prevention, and discuss how they affect the security of your organization's data
