It seems as if every day brings a new worry for your cyber security. Were those home goods worth my credit card information being stolen? How much do I love being able to Photoshop® funny cats into all of my holiday photos? Enough to have my personal information compromised? Is this new drill purchased from the hardware store worth the potential hassle?

As they seem to be getting more and more frequent, data breaches can certainly turn anyone into a hacking hypochondriac, all with good reason. All of these stories vary in detail, but nearly every one is summarized with a line that is depressingly familiar:

one of the largest corporate data breaches ever reported.”

Business owners are often concerned over the protection of their networks, data, employees, visitors, and, of course, their assets. Ensuring a safe and secure workplace is an important responsibility, not something they would just hand off to anyone. They look to those they trust, those who also have the necessary skills to support their physical security systems and strategies. This is a prime opportunity for capable and knowledgeable solution providers. Physical security is that often-hidden, somewhat forgotten, yet crucial part of the business infrastructure. Like many of today’s solutions, the assessment and planning processes that occur beforehand are as important as the technology decisions they make. The top priority is to address each customer’s specific organisation needs. When that’s done properly, solution providers should experience exponential growth in their physical security practice revenue and profitability.

Many learning leaders don’t fully appreciate the emotional connection employees today have with their personal devices. They’re joined at the hip with them, both literally and figuratively, and they put enormous value on the availability of 24/7 connectivity. Want more productivity from your knowledge workers? Join the BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) revolution, AKA “the consumerization of IT.”

Download whitepaper
If you’re involved in training (or even if you’ve ever had training), you have heard of the learning curve. But you may not know that the concept is nearly as old as experimental psychology itself. The learning curve was discovered by psychologist Hermann Ebbinghaus in 1885. However, as soon as Ebbinghaus discovered the learning curve, which describes how quickly you learn information, he discovered the forgetting curve, which describes how quickly you forget newly learned information.

The good news is that lost learning is an opportunity to improve the effectiveness of training, which is another way of saying to improve the return on the training investment.

  • The effect of the learning and forgetting curves on learning retention
  • How reinforcement can help protect learning retention and your training investment
