But at the end, if we are not part of the solution, we can be part of the threat. So, as the developers of new platforms, of new products, we are making a major emphasis on security trends, so we can be all safe using these new technologies,” Romero explained.In addition to this, the trainer brought attention to the newest product line of work stations, which could be vital for the graphics needs in the oil and gas industry, especially for Guyana.“In our product line, we have the work stations, it’s a special product line that is meant for those users that have graphics needs, the specific applications that need a lot of performance and reliability … An example of these is the oil and gas industry, oil and gas needs a lot of graphics performance to be able to know where their location should be, what they should do and how they can improve the investments day by day,” Romero noted.Apart from these discussions, the facilitators also hosted a training programme earlier on Wednesday for representatives from the Government, business and professional sectors, which showcased HP products with special emphasis on standard features built into the HP products that protect data and network operations.At the event, Starr Computer was also presented with the HP Platinum partner award by Caribbean Territory Manager Gustavo Guardian and was now an authorised HP service centre in Guyana.last_img
