Copeland Newsletter: Autumn Edition

Happy fall from the Copeland team! This is the time of year for all things spooky, so we wanted to dedicate this issue to the scariest trend in technology: cyber attacks.

Also in this issue of the Copeland newsletter, we’ll cover team news, updates in technology for the upcoming year, and welcome our newest additions to the Copeland family.
