We ask the hard question and we get the hard facts: Can I afford Big Data and what are the benefits to mid-market companies.

A few years into the Big Data revolution and the landscape looks a little different. Cloud-based platforms and other mature tools are now available giving Mid-market companies access to Big Data analytics.

Cybersecurity is a top priority across all sectors of government, institutions and corporations requires individuals that possess a multitude of skills and knowledge. The next generation of Cyber Security Leader will be positioned to meet the growing demands of highly skilled Cyber Security experts.
