By Thomas Ohr

With global digitalisation having sped up over the last year, it’s no surprise that more companies are going digital – not only in terms of the way they work internally, but also regarding more startups and corporates working on digital products and services. Sectors like edtech, medtech, e-commerce, gaming and others are on an upward trajectory, with more tech-driven positions being created than ever before.

TJF – Tech Jobs Fair, founded by Ashok Dudhat, is a platform to empower brands and companies by matching them with the talents they are looking for. It has a strong emphasis on IT and Digital domains and its mission is to provide companies with an opportunity to enhance their brand equity, recall and recognition by providing cost-effective hiring and branding solutions. TJF held its first edition in 2017 in Berlin, and in 2019 made its mark in three other commercial hubs in Europe: Vienna, Zurich and Lisbon. TJF operates with a core team in Berlin as well as with event-based local professionals in the various cities pertaining to the job fairs.

By Stuart Wood

Cyber security is the top concern of business leaders, and the area where leaders feel their knowledge is most lacking, according to research conducted by events and technology company GDS Group.

Joe Biden’s tech – what can the president use?

By James Clayton and Cody Godwin

The electronic devices around the US president are perhaps the most prominent hacking targets in the world.

“The odds are zero, that [Russia] aren’t targeting world leaders,” Harvard Kennedy School lecturer Bruce Schneier says.

Back in the 2000s, this wasn’t such a big problem – the only personal devices that could be hacked were computers and non-smart mobile phones.
