The IT Pro Podcast: Looking back on 2019

We recap some of the most important stories and trends from the past year

It's that time of year again; the holidays are fast approaching and businesses are shutting up shop for the year, so as 2019 draws to a close, it's time to look back and reflect on some of the biggest stories and most important trends of the past 12 months. 

This year has been an eventful one for the UK tech industry, which has weathered everything from continuing political uncertainty to a rash of high-profile GDPR fines, as well as some nasty ransomware infections. In this special bonus episode, we'll be looking at all this and more. 

We'll be taking next week off, but join us in the new year where we'll be discussing the upcoming trends that are set to define the first year of the new decade.
