Cyber crime operations are now among the multi-million dollar businesses thriving in 2019. Crooks are able to blitz IT infrastructure and pilfer precious pieces of data with ease. Attacks are becoming extremely sophisticated and discreet. At times, they are only detectable once the damage has been done. 
The cloud is helping to bring big changes. It is fully capable of producing actionable insights and evolved consumer experiences that have never been obtainable before. It is solving problems and increasing efficiency while keeping data protected. As we progress into a more cloud-friendly business environment, many companies still find that their operations are tied to traditional workflows. In order to facilitate support, there must be ticketing. For finance, there is accounting. And for manufacturing, there is ERP.
Data has become the substance of modern business. Cloud-based infrastructure is the conduit that supports data enrichment, delivery and protection. With the new year quickly approaching, enterprises are preparing to immerse in an innovative digital redesign.
The Government of Canada is using Cloud technology to rapidly improve its information services. Moving to the Cloud will make it easier for Canadian residents to access innovative and supportive programs.
Compliancy is a hot button issue. Managed Service Providers (MSPs) are compelled by clients to prove their competency with Canadian privacy laws – and for good reason. Canadian businesses that regularly acquire sensitive data are expected to remain compliant or else face penalties. Depending on the particular governance in place, compliancy can be achieved when data is housed within National or Provincial borders.
