I am regularly asked to summarize my many posts. I thought it would be a good idea to publish on this blog, every Monday, some of the most relevant articles that I have already shared with you on my social networks.
Today I will share some of the most relevant articles about Digital Transformation and in what form you can find it in today’s life. I will also comment on the articles.

Digital transformation and hybrid models expose more businesses to cyber attacks in 2022. As more businesses adopt hybrid work models and undergo rapid digital transformation to cope with the Covid-19 challenges, it also exposed more cyber attacks to surface against the organisations and make them more vulnerable to the security breaches in 2022, industry experts warn. It is no longer enough for organisations to assume they are safe by simply monitoring security tools and ensuring they are detecting malicious code, Harish Chib, vice president for Middle East and Africa at British security firm Sophos, told The National.

7 critical ways that technology can boost food safety and reduce risks. Food safety should always be the top priority for food businesses, but the COVID-19 pandemic has thrown our industry some major curveballs, creating new challenges around safety efforts. First, the pandemic has resulted in a whole new set of safety protocols, with businesses implementing more stringent cleaning and sanitation practices, from more frequent handwashing to regular sanitation of high-touch areas. Additionally, businesses must adhere to social distancing guidelines, capacity restrictions, masking mandates, and employee temperature checks. As we’ve seen since last March, COVID-19 guidelines have been ever-evolving, so teams must stay updated on the latest recommendations. Another huge challenge is the staffing shortage that our industry is facing. Many people left their food industry jobs, as restaurants and other businesses closed or operated at reduced capacity. Others left because of childcare issues or because of fears of contracting COVID. And now, food businesses are scrambling to attract, recruit, and hire new employees. As a result, business leaders are experiencing unprecedented chaos and stress.
