There was a time when cyber was seen almost exclusively as an IT concern. These days, cyber security and risk management need to be viewed as a board-level issue, directly impacting finance, compliance, operations, customer relations – and indeed, every corner of the business.

The cyber security basics – measures such as systems protection, security infrastructure, user controls and safe data handling – are as crucial as ever. And as threat actors and their methods evolve, there will always be the need to ensure your cyber security toolkit is fit for purpose.

But alongside cyber security, it is also vital to focus on cyber resilience. This is the realisation that – try as you might – not every threat can be stopped and not every risk can be entirely mitigated. Resilience describes your ability to anticipate, prepare for, withstand, respond to and recover from whatever may be around the corner.

Read on to have a closer look at the need for resilience in the context of the current threat landscape, the barriers to it, and the steps required to build it.

The Future of Cryptocurrency

In 2022, some people still regard the world of cryptocurrency as a kind of Financial Wild West: a place where anonymity is the norm, scammers can flourish, and easy wins (or catastrophic losses) can happen overnight.

For others, the arrival of the first digital currency was the most significant fintech development of our generation. Blockchain, the technology that underpins cryptocurrency, is all set to strengthen transparency and financial governance rather than undermining it. And with the number of crypto transactions on the rise, there’s an argument that by ignoring its presence, you are simply handing your competitors an advantage.

The right approach for most UK businesses will probably be somewhere in the middle. Read on to cut through the crypto hype, to understand the up
and coming currencies and trends, and to get a better idea of whether elements of the blockchain/ digital currency landscape may become more relevant to your own business in the near future…

8 outdated attitudes that are putting your organisation's financial future at risk

There’s never been a more important time to plan your organisation’s financial future quickly and accurately. With so much uncertainty around, you need to be able to model the financial implications of what-of scenarios quickly.

ERP Software Selection

ERP Software Selection


The promise of ERP (Enterprise Resource Planning) is a compelling one. Deploy the right solution and it can help deliver a complete view of your business, integrate processes and data, drive efficiency, boost productivity and sharpen your competitive edge.

But as with any major software implementation project, success is not guaranteed. Even a seasoned procurement manager can be captivated by the bells and whistles such as swish visualisations and impressive-sounding AI capabilities, while potentially losing sight of the nuts and bolts: i.e. the ability of the system to meet your real-life business problems.
