Offices aren’t productivity factories anymore—they’re
collaboration centers where individuals and groups
can develop their best ideas. That means building out
an office takes a whole new approach, and it isn’t just

In a growing business everyone – and everything – counts. You literally can’t afford underperforming employees, and lack of direction can be fatal. If you want long-term success, you really need to focus on where you’re going, what you need to get there, and put plans in place to make that happen.

The accessibility of Carberp source code could easily have provided a starting point for the Carbanak as they built their malware.
