world environmental day

World Environmental Day was the highlight of the start of the new month and has reminded us that we can all help save our environment even through technology. However, was not all for the first week of June.

From the worrying NY unemployment rate to being tech environmentally friendly, and learning about the NY transit cyberattack, the month of June has made its grand entrance.

This week felt like a blur for most people, especially since we have just got back from Memorial Day. Having a long weekend sounds like a much-needed break and we certainly hope that you are well rested and managed to get a lot done this past week.

If you have been busy playing catch up with work and have little to no time trying to keep up with the latest in the tech space, don’t worry; we’ll fill you in with a short recap on the latest in tech news this week.

Bringing more tech into the workplace.

Today, when people hear the term “digital tech”, they get into a bit of a panic because they assume that it is yet another threat to their jobs or another difficult task presented before them.

When bringing technologies into the workplace, it pays to be realistic. Often, for instance, bringing new digital technology into an organization does not radically improve a firm’s operations. Despite high-level planning, a more frequent result is the messy process of frontline employees figuring out how they can get tech tools to help them to some degree.

In the news: A Cyberattack to kick-off June:

When they say that anyone could fall victim to a cyber-crime; believe them because they are absolutely right.

Hackers infiltrated computer systems for the Metropolitan Transportation Authority in New York, setting off a scramble to counter a potentially crippling cyberattack against North America’s largest transit system, MTA officials confirmed on Wednesday.

Now if this does not raise eyebrows for this week, then we’re not quite sure what will.
