Exploring Today’s Cybersecurity Landscape


Michael Vardavas / Zac Cochrane


SMBs in the IT sector face a host of challenges. Rapid technological advancements, cybersecurity threats, and regulatory demands create a complex landscape. Cybersecurity is a major concern. SMBs must defend against sophisticated cyberattacks, requiring significant investment in security measures and employee training. Adopting emerging technologies like AI, cloud computing, and IoT is another hurdle. Limited budgets and resources often impede seamless integration and innovation. Join us to learn how to turn these challenges into opportunities for your business and your clients.

Peter Ward, Dijital Team


Over the last 10+ years, it has been popular to outsource well-defined manual processes to trained specialists in countries with lower cost bases.

Over the last couple of years, there have been some interesting trends:

  • Labour costs in the traditional outsource countries (Philippines, Sri Lanka, India etc) have materially increased; 
  • The onset of Artificial Intelligence and business process automation / robotic process automation solutions has organisations automating these well defined processes for significantly less than what it would cost to outsource.

How is this impacting the IT outsourcing industry and how will the outsourcing industry ‘evolve’ to deliver new value propositions?
