‘Ahead in the Cloud’ Strategy Workshop: GDPR, Cloud Services and Business Apps
The Workshop Sessions are free to Workspace customers and Club Workspace Members. Non-Workspace customers may access the Workshops Sessions for £125(+VAT)
Are your business finances, customers, suppliers and staff increasingly being managed through a range of cloud applications, hosted services and shared data platforms? Do you check your bank statement and see a glut of debits going out to a spectrum of online suppliers you never heard of 5 years ago?
If so, you are in the same boat as most SMEs, and these Workshops provide a chance to check on whether your use of Apps and Cloud Services are efficient, effective, safe and legal! Used in the right way, your business can outperform the competition. A lack of strategic thinking in their use, and you can spend your time dealing with a mess of unnecessary process.
These Workshops will be delivered by a range of skilled experts in their fields, and present a chance for you learn from the experiences and recommendations of other business leaders. Some of the areas we will be covering
- Choice: What are the right Apps to manage your Finances and Grow your Business
- Control: Data Storage, Confidentiality, Security and Access
- Connectivity: Between Apps, Platform and Devices.
- Cost: What should you be spending.
- Crime: with GDPR, making sure you stay within the law.
- Who is responsible for preparing and using company data – who should have access, and how to you manage confidentiality.
- How do you look after data – and where? How do you manage connectivity between your team, and customers and suppliers? How do you safely manage the array of devices utilised throughout your company?
- What financial applications can work for your business – and we will cover core accounting, analytical tools, cash forecasting, e-commerce and payment engines.
- What legal and regulatory matters should you be considering – how do you deal with GDPR, hosting security and confidentiality.
- What should you be spending on all of this – and do you get the return you want? What are the pitfalls to avoid?
