“Debbie understands how keeping up-to-date with the latest innovations can really benefit her clients and is adept at working out the best technology suited to helping businesses succeed.”

Meanwhile, MYOB’s Online Transformation award was presented to Sue Inkersell from 3rd Arm Admin, based in Porirua.

With distance no longer a viable defence, Kiwi businesses are fighting to stay ahead of the security curve. In total, 28 per cent of local businesses faced a cyber attack last year, with the number in New Zealand set to rise in 2017. Yet amidst the sensationalism, media headlines and ongoing high profile breaches, confusion floods the channel, as partners seek strategic methods to combat rising sophistication from attackers.
