Cyber security has been a focus since the dawn of the internet, especially so since the dot-com boom in the late 90s, but never has cyber crime been so prevalent as it is today. We depend so heavily on the internet and technology in both our professional and personal lives and cyber criminals are exploiting our dependence more and more each year.

Cyber criminals are getting more sophisticated by the day, and whilst there’s no way to predict the exact cost cyber crime will cause to businesses and individuals, the projected cost of global cybercrime by 2025 is £8.6 trillion – greater than the GDP of Kosovo, and that of 59 other countries!

Earlier this month, our Founder Raja Pagadala shared the stage with some of his peers at IT Nation Connect in Orlando to discuss all things cyber security and AI in IT.

"This year the 2 main themes of IT Nation were security and the impact of Artificial Intelligence on the sector, specifically Robotic Process Automation. As always, the conference featured thought-provoking and informative keynotes and sessions, and presented a great opportunity to catch up with peers. Investing in education, training and events like this helps keep TFS at the forefront of developing trends.

A huge thank you to everyone at ConnectWise that makes this event both enjoyable and informative."
