Cloud Services

Jaco Voigt is joined by Juan Paul from Mustek this week, for an interesting conversation about how Taipei's water and container shortages, influenced by the pandemic, caused shortages in chip manufacturing. A reminder that synching is not a back-up - and the answer to backing up your data is always a "YES". The world has seen double digit growth in cloud storage, and it is set to continue on this trend. Are you still physically hugging your server daily, or have you delved into cloud storage with a reminder of compliance, regulation, security and speed being key specifications? The Internet of Everything means more attack surfaces... is your data protected and safely stored?

Cyber Security

“We have a cyber breach - should we not just pay”? Jaco Voigt chats to Rudie from Razrtec, who educates us about the dangers of just shutting down a server which could hide the footprints of the attack. POPIA probed your business about data security – but is it just paper-based, or have you done a real live malware/cyber attack readiness test? You need to be in the know – who has access to your data, and where is your data? Does your business have a good EDR solution? Behavioural analytics happens at the speed of light - do you have a real time dashboard to monitor? How often do you force password changes? There are no guarantees that if you pay for the first set of encryption keys, that you won't be threatened with distribution of your data in months to come. People and processes are critical... listen to this podcast to see where your business’ loopholes are!

Unbundled #BOOST: MK Method

Some strange things happened during lockdown. Previously competitors in the neat freak organisation space, but now best friends with a joint business venture - Jaco Voigt chats to Megan and Kasia from MK Method. MK Method grew from cardboard boxes as demo storage examples, to a niche high-end service of tweaking the homes and offices of busy folk. They make pretty magic by elevating habits and routine with space formation, great design and beautiful products.

Reviewing your Business Technology Needs

Jaco Voigt chats to Andre from Salescollab about the value of building trust and selling solutions that are not a quick fix. Who is your technology advisor – Bob at the bar, or are you embracing your technology with a trusted advisor for long-term integration and engagement? Do you know where your solutions are falling short? What is your data journey? Is your current technology solution fit for the future? Technology solutions are like special effects in a movie - they should be so seamless that you just don’t see them. It should never be a discounting game, as you most often will get (or not get) what you pay for!
