COVID-19 has changed the way we live and work, which appear to be our new normal. Working at home remotely for many positions have forced many to change their home environment to be conducive with the workplace. This change does not have to be dreaded. Businesses can embrace the new normal by adequately preparing employees for any future work alternative.
If you are an employer who has not invested in implementing any of the above suggestions, I urge you to consider your options. Just because you have made it through the first wave of an alternative work environment without incident, does not ensure your security. If you are a small business and are unable to implement any of the above suggestions, consider only using your office computer for work related transactions, minimize the use of internet, and consider using emails only for business purposes.
