TMC - Technology, Media & Communications
In an environment of continuous innovation, the technology, media and telecommunications sector has been subject to major transformation for some years. Although technological advances have introduced many great opportunities for businesses, navigating this environment requires constant vigilance. It is now crucial that you protect your business interests when implementing information systems. It is equally essential that you protect the ownership of the intellectual property used and develop preventive actions to ensure that the resources implemented on networks satisfy the legal requirements in force at all times. These complex issues require a pragmatic and multi-disciplinary approach.
