Electric utilities are awakening to the power afforded by dynamic advances in technology
With their infrastructure graying and renewable energy posing growing threats to their customer bases and bottom lines, electric utilities are awakening to the power afforded by dynamic advances in construction, from the deployment of drones to innovative construction practices. Amid the prospect of a continued shift to decentralized, digital grids and the broadening appeal of increasingly affordable solar power systems, electricity suppliers no longer have the luxury of resisting change or delaying the adoption of next-generation power delivery.
Securing sensitive data for nonprofits around the world
By Tess Hetzel, Sr. Corporate Responsibility
In our increasingly digital world, nonprofit employees and volunteers typically handle sensitive data on a daily basis, and data security is a top concern. With limited budgets, nonprofit and charitable organizations often lack the resources needed to invest in quality data protection. For the past 16 years, Symantec and TechSoup have worked together to provide nonprofits with affordable access to much-needed security software.
Cybersecurity remains an increasing concern and investment priority for organizations across the globe. Worldwide spending on security-related hardware, software, and services is forecast to reach $133.7 billion in 2022, 45 percent greater than the $92.1 billion forecast for 2018, according to tech analyst firm IDC. IDC MarketScape recognized Booz Allen’s work in cybersecurity by positioning the company as a Leader in U.S. Incident Response in its September 2018 report.
