The General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is designed “to protect all European Union (EU) citizens from privacy and data breaches. The rules affect professional and commercial activity. It applies to all companies processing and holding the personal data of data subjects residing in the European Union, regardless of the company’s location”. If you are a business with multiple locations internationally with locations within the EU or have clients within the EU, you should be ready. “Any processing of personal data and the permissions to use that data has to be transparent. The principle of transparency requires that any information and communication relating to the processing of those personal data be easily accessible and easy to understand, and that clear and plain language be used”. GDPR was approved in April 2016, allowing for a transition period to be enforced May 2018.

The digital revolution and mobility run hand in hand. Technology is revolutionizing the way we communicate in business. We can literally be reached anywhere where there is an Internet connection, whether we pay for that connection or not. More employees are communicating on the go on their personal devices. This concept of Bring Your Own Device (BOYD) is well known these days and accepted by many organizations.
Over the years, Instant Messaging (IM) has become a staple in communications. Looking back in time, did you know that IM originated in the mid-1960s. Multi-user operating systems were essentially the start of IM. The ability to communicate to others logged into the same machine became useful. Fast-forward to the 1980-1990s, when Commodore 64 computers offered online messaging with the collaboration of Quantum Links online service. They were later known as America Online. In 2000, a new open messaging and presence platform called XMPP (Jabber) was introduced. IM clients have since evolved to incorporate other modalities such as video, voice, web-conferencing, and desktop sharing.
