A part_ofAt Tikit, we work closely with Portsmouth University to provide students with the opportunity to gain vital experience they need for the future.

This year we have offered three students the chance to work with us, the most we have ever taken on. They will be working with Tikit’s software portfolio including Partner for Windows (P4W), Carpe Diem, eMarketing, Tikit Connect and Template Management System (TMS).

To date we have had a high success rate with our placement schemes, with a majority of our students returning to work with us after graduation. In fact, our very first placement student, Reuben Manning is now an applications support manager after joining Tikit back in 2009.

Meet this year’s placement students:

Jonathan Jones currently studies BSc Business Information Systems at Portsmouth University and will be working with our Applications team..

Heidi Johansen is currently studying BA (Hons) International Business at Portsmouth University and has taken on a role in Business Administration.

Yanna Antoniou studies BSc Computing at Portsmouth University and will also be working with our applications team.

Jonathan, Heidi and Janna will be with the company for one year.  They will be treated the same as any other member of the Tikit support team. We hope they enjoy their time here and gain some hands on experience, as well as valuable knowledge they will need for the future.

GDPR and the rise of ‘datanapping’ – the new threat to the pockets of law firms

Nigel Wright

You’ve heard about ransomware – a hacker infiltrates your IT systems, locking them down until you pay a ransom. Some studies now estimate that over 50% of businesses have experienced this type of attack in the last year, and it’s particularly prevalent within the legal sector. Previously, firms could protect themselves by having a solid disaster recovery plan in place to ensure they can get back up and running in the event of a disruption. However, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) – the new EU-wide regime which comes in effect on 25 May 2018, irrespective of Brexit – means that this approach alone is no longer adequate and security measures must be strengthened to prevent attacks.
