Editor’s update


Dear reader

The face of business in South Africa is changing, driven by the constant evolution of IT and its role within the enterprise. This has led to a skills shortage in the sector – something companies appear to be addressing by hiring temporary workers.

Also in the news this week is the rise of payments fraud, which poses a significant risk to businesses in terms of financial and reputational losses.

Until next week,
