GDPR: An Engineers Point of View

If you are currently working in IT in the lead up to the GDPR implementation date (25 May 2018) you were probably trying to decipher the huge volume of data available on how to be GDPR compliant. I had already spent the year prior quietly reading and trying to absorb the thousands of free (!!!) GDPR resources online and I was becoming increasingly disillusioned at the reams of conflicting advice that seemed to emerge each day. More so because colleagues and customers alike were looking at me to advise them on the best way forward.

How will the Networking and Communications Sector incorporate Drones?

Drone technology has the potential to increase UK GDP by £42 billion by 2030, according to new research from PwC.

The research estimates there will be more than 76,000 drones in use across UK skies by 2030. More than a third of these could be utilised by the public sector (including in areas such as defence, health and education).
