In January 2016 Forbes.com published an article titled 8 Tech Trends Changing How We Work In 2016. The first trend mentioned in the article is “The ability to work from anywhere, anytime and on any device.”
This scenario presents significant challenges for both self-employed people and companies. Significant challenges include
- The growing threat of cybercrime.
- Secure access to business data.
- Compliance with the incoming General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR)
