IT Governance launches webinar series to help organisations prepare for GDPR compliance

IT Governance, the global cybersecurity experts.

ELY, UNITED KINGDOM, February 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — IT Governance, the leading provider of General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) compliance services and resources, is launching a webinar series to help organisations prepare for the Regulation.

As of 25 May 2018, the GDPR will create a shift in the way organisations collect and process personal data. Failure to comply with the Regulation’s requirements will lead to fines, reputational damage and other penalties.

Alan Calder, founder and executive chairman of IT Governance, said: “Few organisations realise the extent to which the GDPR changes the way that any business is conducted. The issue is not only the lack of awareness around the consequences of the Regulation but also gaps in organisations’ knowledge about achieving compliance. GDPR compliance is not just a matter of ticking a few boxes. The Regulation demands that organisations take a risk-based approach to data protection, ensuring appropriate policies and procedures are in place to deal with the transparency, accountability and individuals’ rights provisions, as well as building a workplace culture of data privacy and security.

“All of this can seem overwhelming without appropriate guidance. And with the added element of urgency from the compliance deadline, it may appear too late to get started. However, we strongly believe that the sooner a GDPR action plan is initiated, the smaller the risk of exposure.”

IT Governance is thus responding to this increasing need for expertise with a series of webinars designed to provide an overview of various GDPR topics, including compliance basics and sector-specific compliance strategies.

The first steps towards GDPR compliance will run on multiple dates. These webinars will cover why you must comply with the GDPR and what might happen if you don’t, the GDPR’s direct effect on your business and the transition timelines, the first steps in preparing for GDPR compliance, the technical and organisational measures your business will need to adopt to comply with the Regulation, and key recommendations and industry-recognised practices to help you achieve GDPR compliance.

The other webinars cover more specialised topics:

– GDPR challenges for the healthcare sector and the practical steps to compliance
– GDPR compliance and information security: reducing data breach risks
– Compliance solutions: how can penetration testing support your GDPR project?
– How can an ISO 27001-compliant ISMS help law firms achieve GDPR compliance?
– The responsibilities of controllers and processors under the GDPR and how ongoing staff awareness can support compliance
– How to conduct effective data protection impact assessments (DPIAs) to minimise privacy risks and maintain GDPR compliance

Gary Vaynerchuck Keynotes Toronto's Haste & Hustle Tuesday, February 27th

Famed entrepreneur and 5x NY Times Best Selling Author @GaryVee waived his $120K speaking fee to bring this event to students and early stage entrepreneurs.

Whether it’s daily habits for success, the right mindset, lifestyle techniques or financial management, every aspect of being a successful entrepreneur will be covered.”

— Shauna Arnott, Founder of Haste & Hustle

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, February 23, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Gary Vaynerchuk will be making a highly anticipated appearance in Toronto on Tuesday, February 27th to keynote Generation Now, a Haste & Hustle event geared at young, aspiring and established entrepreneurs. Haste & Hustle event producer Shauna Arnott captured Gary's attention and his heart after last year's event in Niagara-on-the-Lake. It was Shauna's first major independent event and the odds weren't in her favour. Despite the haste and all of the hustle… Shauna is still working to repay the debts caused by a few negative complications of last year's event.

"The event was incredibly well received, everyone had an amazing time – and the impact was unbelievable… but the financial realties of operating an event with personal loans from family and friends didn't work out for me in a fairytale sort of way. I had to fall hard and fast; dust myself off, and pick myself up. I'm still working everyday to pay back every penny of last year's losses and so grateful to Gary for his gift. It gave me the opportunity to breathe knowing my single biggest cost was covered." – Shauna Arnott

When the venue was changed from the scheduled hotel to the local church in a last minute panic, @GaryVee's spidey senses were tingling. After confirming Shauna had lost her shirt on the event, Gary offered last February to return to Toronto in 2018 so Shauna would have the chance to make her money back. Since then, his once $60k speaking fee has doubled to $120k USD after numerous key contributions to the rise of his star in the past year – an Entrepreneur Magazine cover, a sponsored Super Bowl party, 5th best selling book, 2 pairs of custom K-Swiss sneakers, and last but certainly not least: a spot next to Jessica Alba, Gwyneth Paltrow & Will.I.Am on Apple's Planet of the Apps.

To honour Gary's gift; Shauna purposefully priced the event to be affordable for new entrepreneurs and students. To take it to the next level, Shauna created the "Pay-It-Forward Program" offering an $1100 package that gives the buyer one VIP ticket + 10 student tickets donated on their behalf. To date, over 300 tickets have been donated by generous entrepreneurs.

Many entrepreneurs and business people know what it’s like to think outside the box and can relate to having issues in school or feeling lost with no direction. This initiative is geared toward directly impacting a young person that feels the same way, helping to point them in the right direction and learn invaluable information.

Shauna knows the carefully selected line up of speakers will be able to resonate with younger attendees, “Every speaker taking part in the event has
something unique to offer,” she says. “Whether it’s daily habits for success, the right mindset, lifestyle techniques or financial management, every aspect of being a successful entrepreneur will be covered.”

Generation Now is offering two different sponsorship packages that will enable either 10 or 25 young minds to attend the event at no charge to them directly and learn what it really means to be an entrepreneur. Each package is loaded with perks and incentives, like exclusive photo ops, free gifts, signed books and lunch with the VIPs.

For more information about the package options and how you can make a difference in the life of a young, would-be entrepreneur, please call Shauna Arnott at 905-246- 2111

Gary Vaynerchuk is speaking at 1:35pm and press passes are available to media. Please contact shauna@hasteandhustle.com to attend.

Ricardo Cordova to teach course on how to build WordPress websites

WordPress is now the largest content management system on the internet.

SARASOTA, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Websites built around WordPress now account for 30% of all sites currently online, making it the internet's largest content management system by a considerable margin.

A content management system—known as a CMS—is an application which supports the creation and development of digital content. Often utilized by multiple users working cooperatively, in an online sense, a CMS is built around the goal of designing and publishing web pages and online content. This content typically includes text, photos, video, audio, maps, and program code.

WordPress, first released in 2003, is a free-to-use system based on PHP and MySQL which users can install on most web hosting platforms. As a CMS, it sits alongside the likes of Joomla, Magento, and Drupal.

However, WordPress holds not only a bigger share of the CMS market than Joomla, Magento and Drupal combined, but a bigger share than every other available CMS currently available put together.

Estimates suggest that WordPress holds up to 60% of the market, while Joomla follows with a somewhat less impressive 6-7%. Drupal is reportedly third, holding a share of less than 5% in total.

It's with this in mind that Ricardo Cordova wants to champion the importance of understanding WordPress in today's digital world.

The Sarasota businessman wants to give those with an interest in creating content for the web, but lacking the knowledge to do so, a springboard into the world of online publishing.

"I'll cover the basics, first and foremost. A good, solid understanding of the fundamentals is enough to get most people up and running with WordPress," says Cordova.

"For many years, Magento was the go-to CMS, but it was fiddly and not particularly user-friendly. WordPress is much more accessible, in my opinion," he adds.

Having previously taught basic courses on Magento, Ricardo Cordova is now committed to WordPress.

"Magento, while outside of the top 3 overall content management systems, admittedly still holds its own when it comes to e-commerce," he says.

Indeed, Magento previously held the title of the internet's biggest and most popular e-commerce platform for many years.

In 2017 however, it was pushed into second place by WooCommerce, a WordPress-based e-commerce offering.

Magento now holds a 9% share of the e-commerce platform market, while WooCommerce for WordPress has crept into first place with 10%.

"It goes to show how important WordPress is," says Cordova. "Not only is it the biggest platform for delivering content online, but it's also now the biggest platform on which to build an online store."

Of WordPress knocking Magento off the top spot for e-commerce platforms, Cordova says he's "not surprised" and casts no doubt on the fact that WordPress will continue to dominate the market.

"An estimated 27 million sites on the internet are built around WordPress," remarks Ricardo Cordova.

"These include huge sites, too, such as BBC America, Time, and TechCrunch," he continues.

"Even Beyonce's website is built on WordPress!" he adds cheerily.

Details of Ricardo Cordova's course on how to build WordPress websites, which will be offered to all interested parties in the Sarasota area, will be made available soon.

On Hosting Exchange Students: A Conversation with a Host Mom

The Heller Family with Exchange Student

Because we’ve hosted so many students, I have friends and kids all over the world!”

— ETC Host Mom Helen Heller

PORTLAND, OR, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — “It started in 2008, when our daughter was a freshman in high school.”

Helen, an Education, Travel & Culture (ETC) host mom living in Oregon, believes in sharing the American dream with exchange students. Over the years Helen has hosted students from France, Korea, Japan, Brazil, Spain, Mexico, Germany and a student from Costa Rica. One of the best parts about hosting an international teen, according to Helen, is their willing to explore American culture. “They don’t take it for granted. Think about it, to leave your family for six months to a year, it takes a lot of guts. Their willingness to go and explore American culture makes them more focused”.

ETC students have a reputation for being studious. They are thoroughly screened for English proficiency, maturity, and overall readiness to leave their friends and family for an extended amount of time. ETC students who study abroad are persistent, brave and have had a life-long dream of studying in America. “All the kids that come here are very smart.”

Helen’s past experience with international studies has enabled her to be an empathetic support for her students. This has made it possible for her to create strong bonds with her exchange students that last over the years, long after the students enter and exit the study abroad program. “I hosted a French boy four years ago, he was here for seven months and went back home. I told him he can come back anytime and visit. You have an American Family now. Because we’ve hosted so many students, I have friends and kids all over the world!”

This connection to a global community through hosting has invigorated a desire to travel internationally for Helen, especially to visit her kids. “I tell my husband, we have to go to Paris, we can see Bastian, or let’s go to Thailand, we can see ‘Bob’ or Brazil, we can see Louisa’.”

Helen knows firsthand what it takes to host an exchange student. She offers some advice for prospective host parents: “Have fun with the kids and be patient with them. We are learning from them and they are learning from us. Before they arrive, I will find some small familiar items for them, like food. Sometimes when they get homesick, they will look for familiar products, and food is always a comfort for them. So, having a familiar product is a way of saying, ‘we are welcoming you’. Anything beyond that, treat them like your own kids”.

About Education, Travel & Culture:
Education Travel & Culture is a non-profit [501(c)(3)] educational exchange organization. Its purpose is to promote international understanding and goodwill by providing high quality educational and cultural exchange programs in the United States and abroad. ETC provides inbound program opportunities for high school students throughout the world to study in an American high school and live with an American family.

Garfield Goes Digital with Cyber Safety for Digital Learning Day

On this Digital Learning Day, Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures have gone digital, bringing cyber safety lessons to kids where they interact.

We can’t prevent kids from going online. If we instill in them instincts to make good decisions once they’re there, they can enjoy the positive aspects of technology and the Internet safely.”

— Patrick Craven, Director of the Center for Cyber Safety and Education

CLEARWATER, FL, USA, February 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Center for Cyber Safety and Education (Center) and Garfield are celebrating Digital Learning Day on February 22 with a new digital subscription service to Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures, giving children worldwide access to cyber safety lessons from any digital device. Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures are provided by the Center and legendary cartoonist Jim Davis.

Available to individuals, schools, civic groups and companies as an employee benefit, Garfield’s Cyber Safety Adventures tackle top cyber safety issues such as privacy, safe posting, and how to avoid cyberbullying. Each packet includes a Garfield activity book, poster, web camera privacy sticker, and Garfield and friends trading card. Digital Garfield subscribers receive one year of unlimited access to all Garfield cartoon cyber safety lessons, automatically receiving new lessons for free as they become available.

Digital Learning Day promotes the effective use of modern day tools to improve the learning experience in K-12 public schools. Digital Garfield allows children to take “Garfield on the Go” for independent, self-study beyond the classroom.

Patrick Craven, Center director, commented, “Digital Learning Day celebrates the valuable role technology can play in learning, making it the perfect time to take Garfield digital. Influence Central’s Digital Trends Study found that the average age at which kids get their first smart phone is now 10.3 years, and 64% of kids have access to the Internet via their own laptop or tablet. Our own research shows that children spend, on average, over four hours per weekend day online (other than for schoolwork), with almost four in ten (38%) spending five hours or more per day. Digital Garfield brings essential cyber safety lessons to kids where and how they’re interacting.”

For the classroom, teachers can order a Digital or Digital Plus Garfield Educator’s Kit, which contains 30 sets of everything they need to teach an internet safety lesson to a group of students: unlimited digital access to lesson plans, presentations, cyber safety e-alerts, as well as cartoon handouts, classroom wall posters, activity comic books, trading cards, bookmarks, a letter to parents, “I Am Cyber Safe” wearable stickers, and much more.

Garfield creator Jim Davis added, “There are fewer newspapers these days, and everything once paper is going digital. Any new territory is always open to the ill intentions of a lot of people seeking to take advantage of people’s lack of education and knowledge of the new medium. That’s why we need to make sure that our fans, our readers, have a safe and enjoyable experience.”

Craven added, “We hope Digital Garfield empowers students and teachers alike. We can’t prevent kids from going online. If we instill in them instincts to make good decisions once they’re there, they can enjoy the positive aspects of technology and the Internet safely.”

OnPage Is Chosen by Dynamic Network Solutions to Facilitate 24×7 Support

OnPage accommodates the need of 99% of MSPs for 24/7 incident alerting

99% of customers wanted our MSPs to provide 24×7 support and wanted us to provide it as of yesterday”

— Sam Chawkat, DNS Chief Operating Officer

WALTHAM, MASSACHUSETTS, UNITED STATES, February 22, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — OnPage Corporation, the leader in incident alert management systems for MSPs, today announced the release of its new case study. The case study highlights how the critical alerting platform became an essential addition to boutique MSP Dynamic Network Solutions (DNS), enabling them to provide 24×7 support and respond to customer needs instantaneously. By using OnPage, DNS has been able to significantly improve its SLAs as well as reduce cost management.

The march of the 99%

DNS provides managed services to groups such as educational institutions, insurance companies and non-profits across Washington D.C., Maryland, Virginia and Florida. The company’s motto is ‘if it plugs in and turns on, we can take care of it.’ DNS’ employees are committed to providing the highest quality customer service through security monitoring, patches, software updates and proactive service.

These days, 24×7 support is practically a requirement that businesses of all size make of their MSP. However, providing this high level of service is increasingly complicated and costly. This was indeed the challenge DNS faced.

According Sam Chawkat, DNS Chief Operating Officer:
“99% of customers wanted our MSPs to provide 24×7 support and wanted us to provide it as of yesterday.”

Initially, DNS tried to address their customers’ demands with a system that used separate emails and phone numbers for after-hours. In this system, emails or phone calls would be transcribed to ConnectWise Manage tickets which would then be manually assigned to the on-call MSP. Unfortunately, this system was not only expensive for the company, it was also laborious and brought them dangerously close to violating their SLAs.

OnPage brings DNS over the finish line

Today, DNS has switched from manual workflow to an automated one using OnPage to manage after-hours critical alerts. Now when either a customer calls in or a monitoring system detects a problem, a ticket is automatically created in ConnectWise Manage and, based on the severity of the incident and triggers, an alert is sent to OnPage. OnPage is then able to alert the proper MSP on-call to quickly manage the incident.

“A lot of the work is done behind the scenes by monitoring systems and ConnectWise. However, OnPage is important because it is the tool that takes us over the finish line and allows us to immediately start working on issues.”

By integrating ConnectWise manage with OnPage, DNS has seen many notable benefits such as:

• Improved SLAs: Formerly, it took 45 minutes on average before on-call engineers responded to incidents after-hours. Now, DNS has seen a 90% improvement and it takes less than 5 minutes to respond to incidents.
• Decreased cost: In the legacy system, DNS needed managers and a dedicated on-call MSP to manage after hours incidents. Now, on-call engineers are alerted as needed and do not need to be on-call at all hours
• Improved customer relations: Today, 99% of after-hours alerts are the result of network monitoring rather than customer calls. In responding to the former, DNS is able to repair issues before customers ever recognize the problem. This enables DNS to improve customer relations and makes the company more valuable for the client.

With these improvements, DNS can run a much more efficient and profitable organization. The company can ensure alerts are never missed and that customer service continues to reign supreme.

About OnPage
OnPage is the industry leading HIPAA secure Incident Alert Management System. Built around the incident resolution lifecycle, OnPage’s unique ALERT-UNTIL-READ feature continues for up to 8 hours and enables organizations to get the most out of their digitization investments.

Whether to minimize IT infrastructure downtime, or to minimize response time of healthcare providers in life and death situations, organizations are relying on OnPage for all their secure, HIPAA compliant, critical messaging needs.
