If you’re a new small business startup – even if you’re the only person working for you (and none of your family or friends really have much faith in this)- you have high ambitions. You don’t want to be working for someone the rest of your life. You want to be your own boss.

More than ever before we all work on the move – technology and connectivity have reached a point where we no longer panic about whether it will be possible where we are heading. It means that the location of data is no longer fixed, so the importance of protecting data across devices and cloud services is much more important.

Facebook is declining in popularity among young users and Snapchat is booming in these ages but lacks a marketing perspective. Therefore, more and more businesses are turning to Instagram to reach out younger demographics. I for one fully depend on aurora hdr and Instagram to reach my target customers. Instagram marketing is all about visual storytelling, and for the savvy marketer who gets it right, it will yield a gold mine of interested and pre-qualified customers for your business.

It used to be good to talk… so why does nobody do it anymore? No banter. No more. In our house, a fairly typical family home, technology has killed the art of conversation. Family evenings usually involve four of us in the same room communicating… to everyone… using phone or tablet or laptop… in touch with everyone, except the folk in the same room.

In less than 12 months the EU’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) will be replaced by MiFID II. The legislation regulates firms who provide services to clients linked to ‘financial instruments’ and the venues where they are traded. MiFID II will come into force on 3rd January 2018 and for firms impacted by the regulation, benefits are to be had by choosing data centre colocation and the adoption of ‘as-a-service’ tools as part of the adherence strategy.

Starting a business requires, grit, determination, and cash. No matter how amazing your idea is, unless you have sufficient funds in place, it will be hard to make your ideas into a reality. It’s a tough old world for entrepreneurs. A staggering 90% of all start-ups fail within the first year. Of the 10% that do make it past the first anniversary, around 50% will fail within five years. These statistics are harsh, but with sound business practices and enough capital, you have every chance of growing a successful venture.

Your business has a duty to protect confidential and sensitive information. Failure to do so could lead in the misuse of that information to commit illegal activity, such as fraud. This could lead to costly lawsuits, as well as loss of trust in your business.

Employers have a duty of care to ensure workspaces are safe and comfortable. While temperature and humidity control may not seem like a priority, both can have a major impact on your employees’ health and wellbeing. Not only can poor air circulation cause illness, it can reduce productivity and motivation.

The primary reason why limited liability partnerships (LLP) often convert into a company is so members can limit their personal liabilities. Partnerships have no legal identity, which makes each member liable for damages. In a limited liability company (LLC) the partners are shareholders, meaning they are not personally responsible in the event of insolvency. The extent of their liability is purely based upon any unpaid amounts regarding the issue of shares. If the shares are fully paid, which is generally the case, members won’t have any liability.

A new Forrester study reveals that the enterprise security industry is failing, with organisations being breached at an alarming rate. Commissioned by Centrify, the study found that two-thirds of organisations experienced an average of five or more security breaches in the past two years, and hackers compromised more than one billion identities in 2016 alone.
