Technology evolves fast, so do your risks
The technology sector in the UK is expanding 2.6 times faster than the rest of the UK economy. This, according to the 2018 Tech Nation Report, is an indication of not only how quickly tech companies are growing but how quickly the risks tech companies face are evolving.
