This, the technology sector, is often said to thrive on upheaval, driving businesses to embrace innovation to lower operational costs. Similarly issues like climate change, organisational corporate governance and privatisation offer developers opportunities at the same time as they challenge those directly affected.

This doesn’t just mean protecting their people and operations from losses and disruptions. Shareholders can be unforgiving of management whose predictions fall short of expectations. Likewise, products and programs exported or sold overseas can expose the supplier to unexpected liabilities, just as intellectual property rights need protecting – locally and internationally - and claims of claims of infringement defended.
