Digital has changed business forever. Organisations that have embraced digital are leading their industry and influencing others -- those that that haven't are falling behind. But being digital is about more than just having a website. It's about mindset. It's about disruption and starting again. To embrace digital you need to reimagine your entire business -- your products, services and the way you communicate with customers. You need to reconfigure how the organisation works and look again at governance, skills and approach. Then you need to rebuild from top to bottom.

Far-reaching reforms are fundamentally changing the relationships between key players across the world of healthcare. One of the key drivers for the future lies in using information to create more personalised care and standardisation at the same time. We are witnessing the 'industrial revolution' of healthcare, enabled by technology. This will increase access, drive up quality and reduce the overall cost of care.

Whether to drive efficiencies or create new revenues, organisations are undertaking more and more of their business online. Yet as organisations seize the opportunities of cyberspace, there has never been a greater need -- as demonstrated by high-profile breaches at companies around the world -- for robust information security and resilience.
PA not only secures organisations' systems and infrastructure, but also protects their employees, customers, reputation and intellectual property. We help our clients understand which information assets they should protect, address their individual vulnerabilities and identify the real boundaries of their enterprise from a cyber perspective.
We have extensive experience in developing effective risk and resilience strategies, evidenced by our work with world-leading energy firms, high-street chains and major government departments. This has included building strong technical defences against advanced persistent threats, securing the control systems at hundreds of oil and chemical infrastructure points worldwide, developing best practice guidelines for managing employee risk on behalf of the UK government.
Our experience is reinforced by technical expertise covering risk assessment (penetration testing), insider threats and post-attack forensics as well as deep understanding of the specific dangers associated with people's behaviour. We also provide education and training so our clients can develop their own skills to deal with cyber threats in the future.
In today's uncertain climate, business face many questions and paradoxes. How do they lower their costs while growing their market share? How can they plan for the long term while the economy remains so volatile? While most companies struggle in a downturn, how is it that some make record profits?
http://www.paconsulting.com/smart ....... The challenges posed by global trends such as the financial crisis, climate change and the ageing population are affecting every organisation. This combination of challenges has never been seen before and therefore established approaches no longer work. The question is, how do we turn these challenges to our advantage? PA Consulting Group (PA) believes that the answer lies in a smart combination of strategy, technology and infrastructure.
