Tech21 brings parents unlimited fun family time with Evo Play 2017-02-21T01:20:13Z tech21-brings-parents-unlimited-fun-family-time-with-evo-play SYDNEY, 21 February, 2017 – Tech21, the leader in impact protection for mobile devices has launched its new range of cases for the iPad in Australia: Evo Play. “Kids + iPads” isn’t always the safest pairing if your iPad isn’t protected, but it can certainly be one of the most fun for inquisitive minds. Whether it’s watching the latest episode of Peppa Pig or navigating through the back garden jungle discovering new wildlife, iPads can open up a world of exploration, but more often than not, a small chip here or a little crack there means that fun can be cut short. Prolong the play time and keep that shiny new look and feel to your iPad even when little fingers have put it through its paces thanks to tech21’s new iPad case, Evo Play. This comfortable and lightweight case has been designed to offer unbeatable drop protection from up to two metres, and with its iconic design, vibrant colours and handy multi-use handle, this case will remove any glimmer of fear you had in handing over your iPad to your children. This case is constructed almost entirely from tech21’s unique material, FlexShock™ Foam, meaning all sides and surfaces are protected from drops as the material moulds snugly to your iPad. Better still, the case is entirely dishwasher safe, so it’s easy to keep clean, and when it’s on your iPad, its sealed outer shell is abrasion/bite resistant, preventing any bacteria from getting in under the surface. “We’ve designed the all-new Evo Play with kids in mind. We know children love to learn, play and explore, and we recognise iPads are a great way for them to do this. However, they may not love your precious iPad back, so Evo Play is there for you,” comments Jason Roberts, CEO, tech21. “Evo Play is lightweight and comfortable for little hands to hold, yet strong enough to keep your iPad safe from tumbles and drops.” Evo Play is available in pink/purple and blue/green colours from tech21.com, RRP $79.95 for Apple iPad mini, mini 2, mini 3 & mini 4, and RRP $109.95 for Apple iPad Air 2. Much like all of tech21’s products, Evo Play comes with a simple promise: it’s rigorously tested to work harmoniously with your iPad. Like the technology it’s designed to protect, it uses the latest science, ingenious design and unbeatable user-friendliness to make advanced impact protection possible. Tech21 calls it ‘Protection Made Intelligent’. ### For further information, questions, or cases for review, please contact: Jim Barker, tech21/Poem Phone: +61 418 163 770 Email: jim@poemgroup.com.au High-res images: Download here About tech21 Since 2005, tech21 has been developing the most advanced, scientifically proven cases and screen shields for mobile, tablet and laptop devices worldwide.

As the brand evolves to continue meeting the needs of its consumers, tech21 has developed the most advanced impact protection material on the market – FlexShock™.

In addition tech21 puts all its products through a rigorous testing program, and in an industry first has partnered with the National Physical Laboratory (NPL) to develop its testing methodology.

RSA launches Risk & Cybersecurity Practice 2017-02-13T22:30:00Z rsa-launches-risk-cybersecurity-practice SAN FRANCISCO – RSA Conference, February 13, 2017 – RSA, a Dell Technologies business, announced the new RSA Risk & Cybersecurity Practice that helps operationalise Business-Driven Security™ architecture by helping to reduce business risk through systematic and continuous enablement for clients to manage identity, protect their assets, and detect, respond and recover from cyber attacks.   As organisations continue to embrace cloud, IoT and mobile workforces trends, and respond to compliance challenges and continual changes in the threat landscape, demands on businesses to better understand the relationship between risk and security are mounting. The RSA Risk & Cybersecurity Practice helps customers better map these requirements to business priorities with a comprehensive methodology and technology-enhanced service delivery model. This is inclusive of access to RSA technologies and expertise in critical practice areas focusing on Risk Management, Incident Response, Cyber Defence, Identity Assurance, Threat Detection and Response, and Advanced Cyber Defence.   “The cybersecurity industry is constantly evolving, forcing organisations to frequently reassess the services and tools they use to protect from and respond to breaches,” said Doug Howard, Vice President of Global Services, RSA. “These new targeted security services will help organisations confidently approach cybersecurity, and protect their business while providing them choice and flexibility to select individual services based on changing needs. Security is about leveraging expertise to find the most effective and efficient journey to reduce risk.”   The new RSA Risk & Cybersecurity Practice provides: Battled tested expertise: With more than 650 security consultants who use an innovative toolset from RSA Labs, customers benefit from 35 years of best practices addressing the intersection of IT with security honed over thousands of engagements. The RSA Risk & Cybersecurity practice is also accredited by the National Security Cyber Assistance Program for Cyber Incident Response Assistance.   Flexible procurement model: Fixed-price contracts, tailored scope and extended service plans provide managers with greater autonomy over their budgets and timelines.   Accelerated engagement: Pre-packaged consulting services focus on business-driven results that help remediate organisational impact and deliver rapid time to value.   Specialist teams: Designated teams focus on delivering Business-Driven Security solutions, integration across RSA products, pre-packaged service solutions for common customer and partner needs, scalable and supportable customisation solutions, and global resources to lower overall costs.  RSA’s new services can help identify security gaps within organisations, improve cyber defence readiness, evaluate maturity and risk, adhere to governance and compliance practices, and deploy quick response services in the event of a breach. Organisations often focus on technology-centric solutions and overlook the immediate issues and risks facing the business. These RSA services also address this by evaluating people, processes and technology to create a holistic assessment of cybersecurity needs so that if or when a breach occurs, organisations can deploy a nimble and effective response.   The RSA Risk & Cybersecurity Practice has a global footprint and four specialty practices: RSA Risk Management Practice: Risk management programs empower organisations to efficiently implement risk management processes to significantly improve their business risk management maturity. RSA Risk Management practitioners provide industry expertise and best practices to design proven, multi-disciplinary risk management solutions in the most efficient manner.   RSA Identity Assurance Practice: Identity is the core of all security programs and represents the most consequential threat area. RSA identity experts can help with the most complex of governance, lifecycle and multi-factor authentication challenges as well as help define and architect identity and fraud programs to reduce the risk of tomorrow’s threats.   RSA Advanced Cyber Defense Practice: Cyber defence is one part technology and three parts people, process and experience. Our battle-tested cybersecurity experts can rapidly assess an organisation to identify gaps, prioritise risk and design an operational program to systematically improve defences, integrate security solutions, provide deep visibility, detect advanced threats and reduce mitigation time.   RSA Incident Response Practice: In preparing for a breach, organisations make continual improvements to decrease the probability of a breach. In today’s high-risk world of cyber, the probability of being breached remains high and organisations must be prepared for the worst. A well-planned Incident Response (IR) plan combined with RSA’s IR retainer-services backed by on-demand cybersecurity experts can help an organisation respond faster to a cyber attack.  Additionally, RSA University provides a learning path with nearly 200 online and classroom-based training courses to enhance the performance of security teams and boost the security savvy of an organisation.   In response to continued demand, RSA also unveiled two new offerings -- RSA Incident Response (IR) Retainer Services and Advanced Cyber Defense Packages – incremental security services to expand situational and risk-centric planning solutions for organisations.  AVAILABILITY The RSA Incident Response (IR) Retainer Services and Advanced Cyber Defense Packages are currently available globally, and pricing may vary depending on geography and customer requirements. The offerings will also be sold through channel partners. RSA is providing training to channel partners in early 2017 to familiarise them with the services while integrating them into channel partner curricula and offerings.  ADDITIONAL RESOURCES New RSA Business-Driven Security™ Solutions Bridge the ‘Gap of Grief’ Tweet this: With #cloud & #IoT adoption on the rise, @RSAsecurity launches new practice to address these threats: http://rsa.im/2lnJbC7 Tweet this: New @RSAsecurity Risk & Cybersecurity Practice helps organizations manage modern workplace threats: http://rsa.im/2lnJbC7 Connect with RSA via Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, LinkedIn and the RSA Speaking of Security blog ABOUT RSA RSA offers business-driven security solutions that uniquely link business context with security incidents to help organisations manage risk and protect what matters most.

The new platform is engineered to enable organisations to leverage additional insights from internal and external sources as well as other anti-fraud tools to better protect their customers from targeted cybercrime attacks.   “Fraudsters are opportunistic; they aren’t picky as to which channels they use to steal from organisations and their customers. In whichever channel an organisation has weak controls is where you’ll find the bad guys, and they are getting better at finding those weaknesses which is why losses from account takeovers are up over 60% since last year,” said Al Pascual, Research Director and Head of Fraud & Security, Javelin Strategy & Research. “Organisations need to implement smarter controls across channels. That means leveraging holistic intelligence and solutions that are designed to work effectively in each channel in which they do business.”  RSA’s Business-Driven Security™ solutions help customers comprehensively and rapidly link security incidents with business context to respond effectively and protect what matters most. The RSA Fraud & Risk Intelligence platform is built to address many of the challenges facing organisations as they transform their digital strategy. As consumers transact in new ways and across new channels, better capabilities for security and fraud management that do not add friction to the user experience are required.   The platform gives organisations the ability to help balance security and convenience while improving fraud detection and investigation. Key benefits are designed to include:                                                                                            Centralised fraud management: Organisations can gain better visibility across web and mobile sessions and enable faster investigation of fraud incidents by leveraging input from other anti-fraud tools. Enhanced fraud detection: Organisations can correlate internal and external information sources into risk assessments to enhance fraud detection while minimising interruptions to consumers while transacting.    Improved experience for mobile users: Organisations can optimise how they secure their customers in the mobile channel and protect high-risk mobile transactions with a range of step-up authentication options including fingerprint or eye biometrics and transaction signing. The enhancements extend the RSA Fraud & Risk Intelligence Suite’s visibility into fraud events across channels, starting with mobile and web, while assessing and planning to expand into other channels. Enabling insights from other anti-fraud tools, the RSA Fraud and Risk Intelligence Suite is engineered to allow organisations to leverage existing investments to make better risk decisions and improve how they respond to the most sophisticated fraud attacks.   “Organisations are interacting more directly with customers across multiple-digital channel platforms, and the way they protect customers must change too. Customer experience is key, but consumers also expect to feel secure whether they are making an online purchase, transferring money, or checking their healthcare records,” said Shai Cohen, general manager, RSA Fraud & Risk Intelligence Suite. “As fraud threats increase in both frequency and impact, organisations need better visibility and control over their anti-fraud initiatives. The enhancements announced today provide the most comprehensive level of fraud management in the industry.”  ADDITIONAL RESOURCES New RSA Business-Driven Security™ Solutions Bridge the ‘Gap of Grief’ Read the analyst report: Business-Driven Fraud Management: Engaging with Leadership to Drive Investment Read the blog: What peanut butter cups can teach us about fraud prevention Web Threat Detection Trends in E-Commerce: A Guide to Improve Fraud Detection and Investigation Learn more here RSA Fraud & Risk Intelligence Tweet this: In a multi-channel world, fraud is rampant.

The suite is engineered to enable organisations to monitor and deploy in any modern infrastructure, allowing for flexibility, ease of deployment and the comprehensive visibility needed for rapid detection and response. These enhancements extend RSA’s ability to enable organisations to close the security team resource and skills gaps without adding staff. As part of RSA’s Business-Driven Security™ solutions, RSA NetWitness Suite customers can comprehensively and rapidly link security incidents with business context to respond effectively and protect what matters most.   Using the RSA NetWitness Suite, organisations can now deploy the same threat detection content that RSA's Incident Response Practice uses to identify the latest threats. As an illustration of RSA NetWitness Suite’s ability to connect the dots between network, endpoint and log data, the technology was used to identify the malware used in a pair of newly identified attacks – Kingslayer and Schoolbell. The suite provides out-of-the-box content for finding behaviours that are associated with the groups suspected to have perpetrated the attacks. RSA Research recently published technical details about the Kingslayer and Schoolbell attacks.   “RSA NetWitness Suite has helped our security analysts detect and respond to incidents with agility and confidence,” said Eric Tamashunas, Information Security at Johnson & Johnson. “It is not only a key tool in our InfoSec portfolio, it’s a force multiplier that elevates our analysts’ efficiency across the organisation.”   With its deep understanding of the broadest set of attack vectors, RSA NetWitness Suite is designed to address the increasingly pervasive threats posed by fast-moving, increasingly precise attacks that target strategic business assets. While organisations recognise the impact these advanced threats present to infrastructure, reputation and financial health, research shows they are slow to detect and respond to these threats. The latest RSA Threat Detection Survey revealed 92 percent of organisations cannot detect threats very quickly and 89 percent cannot investigate fast enough.   RSA NetWitness Suite’s latest capabilities are engineered to provide visibility into organisations’ applications that are running on cloud and virtual infrastructures, allowing enterprises to collect and analyse critical security data as part of a centralised detection and response platform. In addition, RSA NetWitness components are built to now be deployed to “run anywhere” – on physical, virtual and new cloud infrastructures. Organisations can benefit from the agility offered by unlimited computing and storage without compromising security or availability.   “RSA NetWitness Suite is designed to enable organisations to be more effective and efficient in their security operations. We have engineered the RSA NetWitness Suite to provide unparalleled insight across all infrastructures and deliver rapid, comprehensive ability to defeat today’s security threats,” said Michael Adler, Vice President, Product, RSA NetWitness Suite, RSA. “Customers can close resource gaps on their security teams by using automated detection of today’s known and unknown threats and by monitoring their entire infrastructure – no matter where it is.”   RSA NetWitness Suite is designed to increase the impact of a security team by up to three times by: Mitigating business damage: Rapid detection of today’s known and unknown threats by using automated-behaviour analytics, minimising the dwell time of the attacker and mitigating risk. Creating more efficient and effective security teams: Close gaps on security teams without increasing headcount while improving the current team with automated detection to respond to advanced cyber threats three times faster. Leveraging the cloud and virtual environments while remaining secure: Pervasive visibility into any modern infrastructure and minimising potential blind spots.

SpotLite allows retailers and brands of any size and in any location around the world to monitor market pricing across their industry. Users can choose when they want to receive detailed pricing reports directly to their inbox, as well as configure real-time price alerts for competitors or channels price changes. According to a 2014 McKinsey report, on average, a one per cent price increase typically translates to 8.7 per cent in operating profits for business, yet McKinsey estimated that up to 30 per cent of pricing decisions failed to deliver the best price to their customers – resulting in loss of revenue opportunities. The easy access and availability of data has provided a market opportunity for businesses to track market pricing strategies holistically and in real time. Australian online sales have surged over the last five years, with an IBIS World Online Shopping Research Report estimating an annual growth of 16.2 per cent a surge to $18 billion for 2017. With this newfound access to a wide-ranging variety of retailers and brands online, the space has become increasingly competitive. Several of Invigor’s customers participated in the worldwide testing phase of SpotLite, including international brands Dyson Australia and ASUS Brazil, and retailers such as Adore Beauty and Kogan, with outstanding results. Invigor Group Chairman and CEO Gary Cohen said SpotLite is a valuable insight gathering tool that the Australian market has never before had access. “Our beta clients have been using SpotLite as a resource for almost 2 months. They have full visibility of competitor and distributor pricing, allowing them to address pricing gaps or develop promotional strategies to increase revenue.” ASUS Brazil, the Brazilian arm of the international tech giant and a leader in the computer hardware market, has benefited from SpotLite’s holistic visibility to monitor how their products are priced across distributors and retailers, and this is playing a core role in their day-to-day business decisions. Marcos Santos, Country Product Manager at ASUS Brazil, said SpotLite has quickly become a valuable tool for their team to retain a competitive edge. “Our initial use of SpotLite has uncovered and consolidated an overarching view of how our products are being priced by our channels. The view of not only our own product pricing in the market, but also those of our competitors is allowing us to move swiftly and make tactical and strategic decisions across the product, sales and marketing departments in a timely manner,” Marcos said. By harnessing the power of data, SpotLite has been developed with a range of plans to suit every budget, from large established corporations to small and medium sized business. Customers are not locked into a contract and have the flexibility to tailor a package that best suits their business needs. Starting from just $39 a month, all new customers will benefit from a 30-day free trial in which they’ll have access to SpotLite’s functionalities and features, such as email notifications, customisable charts and dashboards.

Polycom Reveals Top 5 Collaboration Predictions for 2017 2017-01-04T23:28:55Z polycom-reveals-top-5-collaboration-predictions-for-2017 Polycom’s top five collaboration predictions impacting business in 2017: Access Anywhere Collaboration Intelligent and Personal Customer Experiences Digital Transformation Will Move up APAC Government Agendas Evolving Workspaces and Workstyles Startups and Entrepreneurs Need More Collaboration Capabilities AUSTRALIA, 5 January, 2016 –- According to Polycom’s Workplace of Future(1) research, Australian employees spend 40 percent, and New Zealand employees spend 43 percent of their time collaborating with people who are not in their immediate vicinity. This is expected to increase exponentially in the next 12-18 months says Polycom with the release of their top five predictions that will drive business collaboration in 2017. “Physical workplaces are transforming with technology as a driving force. Traditional conference room meetings, emails and handsets are making way for Skype Business video calls, mobile phone messaging and live content sharing and editing,” said Tony Simonsen, Polycom Managing Director, Polycom Australia & New Zealand of the 2017 predictions. “Workspaces and workplaces have evolved. Witness the rise in popularity of the ‘huddle room’ (or small group meeting space) and other agile working environments. These encourage face-to-face communication and impromptu catch-ups, but through video connectivity deliver better sharing opportunities near and far,” added Simonsen. “As we head towards 2017, the changing dynamic of workplace culture and collaboration will increasingly impact business at all levels, from C-Suite to intern.” Outlined below are Polycom’s top collaboration predictions that it believes will impact business in 2017: 1. Access Anywhere Collaboration As more people get access to collaborative technologies at work(2), there is an increased end user expectation that tools should be as easy and intuitive to use as smartphones or tablets. People expect to be able work in the same way across any device, in any room and as they move from a desk to a meeting room – seamlessly and effortlessly. To continue to drive user adoption, collaboration tools will need to be designed for simplicity. 2. Creating Intelligent and Personal Customer Experiences In an age where information is instantly available online, customers are more empowered than ever before. In 2017, interactive collaboration technologies like video are expected to be increasingly adopted as a way of personalising the customer experience. Face to face communication, in real time enables customers to be more closely connected, develop rapport and have open dialogue; which can lead to even greater innovation, loyalty and share of wallet. 3. Digital Transformation Moves Up APAC Government Agendas Companies will continue their digital transformation journeys in 2017. According to research firm, IDC, worldwide spending on technologies is expected to exceed US $2.1 trillion by 2019(3). It’s also expected that digital transformation will become a higher priority for Government. The ambitious Digital Transformation Office(4) in Australia, is just one example of this in action. With more digital natives joining the workforce - harnessing the right technology to ensure connectivity to society will be essential to the success of public sector digital transformation initiatives. 4. Evolving Workspaces and Workstyles Transformational technology is no longer a ‘nice to have’ in today’s globally connected marketplace. A mix of cloud, mobile and desktop collaboration apps is commonplace. However, tomorrow’s technology has to meet the demands of different workstyles and collaboration requirements ranging from group brainstorming to talent acquisition and training. The ability to collaborate seamlessly will be integral to the design of future workspaces. Expect more open meeting spaces, huddle rooms and personal workspaces; as well as home offices – and the ability to seamlessly switch between them. 5. Startups and Entrepreneurs, More Collaboration Needed Co-working spaces, crowdfunding and the hiring of freelancers has become increasingly commonplace among this new breed of business owners. It’s expected that collaboration technology and platforms will continue to drive the spirit of innovation, keeping ideas and business concepts alive through the right connections and transfer of knowledge. ----------------------------- (1) Australia and New Zealand (ANZ) Workplace of the Future report captured insights from 1,500 plus employers and employees across ANZ.

Dell Boomi’s Asia-Pacific and Japan Expansion Continues with Key Senior Hires 2016-12-06T02:09:18Z dell-boomi-s-asia-pacific-and-japan-expansion-continues-with-key-senior-hires Sydney, Australia – December 6, 2016 – Dell Boomi has further expanded its footprint in Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ) with three new senior hires to cater for strong local demand for cloud-based integration Platform-as-a-Service (iPaaS).   The appointments comprise Michelle Grange and David Flaks, who join the company as Enterprise Account Executives, and Richard Snowden, who fills the role of Inside Sales Executive.   With more than 35 years’ experience in software and services sales between them, Grange and Flaks have been appointed to manage business development and customer relations for Boomi’s southern and northern operations in Australia, respectively.   Grange previously held senior roles at SugarCRM and Microsoft, among other software companies, where she worked with multiple top 100 Australian organisations across most industry sectors.   Having formerly had high-profile stints at InfoReady, IBM and Dell, Flaks brings to Boomi extensive experience in client management and team leadership, in both direct and partner sales roles.   Meanwhile, Snowden will work directly with regional organisations on their digital transformation strategies, and act as the first point of contact for them. Snowden joins Boomi from Mulesoft where he was responsible for account development across Australia and New Zealand as the company’s lead Inside Sales Representative.   Boomi launched its APJ operations with the opening of its Sydney office in April 2016. Michael Evans was appointed to lead the business as Managing Director for Asia-Pacific and Japan (APJ), based in Sydney. Evans’ appointment coincided with that of Linda Urlich, Partner and Alliances Manager APJ, and Tania Mushtaq, Senior Marketing Manager APJ, who were joined soon after by a number of additional new executives.  Boomi currently employs 13 staff in the region.   Since launch, Boomi has experienced significant demand from local organisations requiring powerful and simple cloud integration capabilities to connect best-of-breed, business-critical applications.   “Traditional methods for integration typically can no longer cost-effectively meet the integration needs of rapidly evolving businesses,” said Evans. “This is why local organisations are increasingly implementing iPaaS; it provides cloud-based integration capabilities that can be tailored to the specific needs of the company and its various departments.   “The appointments of Michelle, David and Richard provide Boomi with further presence to cater for this demand in Australia and New Zealand. Their experience in the local software industry builds on our existing expertise, allowing us to align even more closely with local companies’ business needs.”  About Dell Boomi Dell Boomi delivers the first and only multi-purpose PaaS for AtomSphere integration Platform as a Service (iPaaS), Master Data Management (MDM) and API Management, and enables customers to integrate any combination of cloud and on-premises applications without software, appliances or coding.

Australian RegTech company recognised for global growth 2016-11-04T06:31:31Z australian-regtech-company-recognised-for-global-growth 4th November 2016, Sydney, Australia. Fast-growth Australian RegTech company, GRC Solutions, were finalists at last week’s NSW Premier’s Export Awards in the Education and Training category, acknowledged for their international growth in Asia and North America. GRC is a collaborative and international online compliance training business that uses its adaptive eLearning platform to maximise learning efficiency while significantly reducing compliance training and development costs for large organisations. Established in 2013, the company opened its first international office in Singapore in 2014 and this year opened an office in New York. The RegTech start-up is committed to having a strong hold in these key markets as part of its future global growth plans. Currently, GRC has over 150 clients and 500,000+ end users. Following a successful launch in Washington DC this month, the company is set to double US growth in the next three months. The company has played a key role to date in assisting Australia’s financial services sector through a period of disruption and uncertainty. Some Australian banks are spending over $300 million each year on compliance and in the last seven years, twenty of the world's biggest banks have paid more than $235 billion in fines. It is now common for bank employees to have 40 or more hours of mandatory training per year. When multiplied across an employee population of 30,000+ staff, the financial services sector is investing vast amounts of employee time into training. “We see the regulatory technology and compliance area really taking off and there is an increasing need for banks to be more efficient and effective in what they do. One client told us that every hour of mandatory training costs them $30 million in lost productivity,” said GRC Managing Director, Julian Fenwick. GRC is using adaptive eLearning technology to help organisations meet regulatory requirements and improve training outcomes without throwing away money. By recognising prior learning, the platform can effectively trim the hours of mandatory learning per employee. American Express is using the adaptive eLearning platform to train over 100,000 people annually in anti-money laundering in eight languages. “In today’s global economy, Australian tech companies need to prioritise global growth as part of their long-term business strategies. At GRC, global growth has always been high on the agenda. We’re delighted to be acknowledged by the NSW Export Awards for something that is a core value of our business,” said Mr Fenwick. GRC’s acknowledgement at last week’s awards comes just a week after GRC accepted the award for Best Compliance Training Program for its work with American Express at the LearnX awards. The company continues to be highly recognised for its innovative and high quality platform and program. GRC will ramp up its global operations in 2017, as they seek to expand their footprint in Asia and the US, whilst keeping an eye on the European market, particularly post-Brexit. The company will be exhibiting at Singapore’s FinTech Summit later this month. About GRC Solutions (www.grcsolutions.com.au): Formerly GRC was part of law firm Blake Dawson Waldron, known as BDW Technology. The company was then spun off in 2013, when Blake Dawson merged with English law firm Ashurst, Today, GRC Solutions is a RegTech company and leader in award-winning online compliance training, spanning legal compliance, risk management and ethics. Across the private, government and non-profit sectors, GRC helps organisations to build resilient cultures amid complex legal and regulatory environments. Headquartered in Sydney, Australia, GRC has a strong international presence in the US, New Zealand and Asia. dnata Selects Avaya to Drive Digital Transformation in Customer Experience 2016-10-18T04:54:44Z dnata-selects-avaya-to-drive-digital-transformation-in-customer-experience Dubai, UAE; October 15, 2016: dnata, one of the world’s largest air services providers and a member of Emirates Group, announced today it has selected Avaya as a strategic technology partner to power its customer service digital transformation strategy.
