The rise of the digital risk officer ...  Gartner believes they will start to become prominent in organisations in 2015 ( via +Arekibo - Digital Consultancy )
Digital risk officers could be soon coming to an organisation near you, that’s if new analysis from Gartner is to be believed. According to the research and advisory firm, with the rise of digital business innovation, 2015 will be the year that digital risk officers (DRO) will come to the fore in large firms operating in the digital space. Could we be in the midst of a disruption of the traditional security officer role?

Intranets and mobile optimisation - it's the future
With companies increasingly recognising the value of 'personalising' their intranets, mobile-optimised employee platforms are also starting to catch-on as a means of raising engagement levels, especially as orgnaisations become more diverse, digital and dispersed. That’s according to a new report on intranets, released by the user experience (UX) consulting firm Nielsen Norman Group.
