How we work, educate, and entertain in this country is being dramatically challenged right now.
Businesses, organizations, and schools nationwide are shutting their doors.
But work isn’t stopping. Large numbers of employees, business owners, entrepreneurs, students, and family members suddenly have been reassigned to work and learn from home.
In the Midst of Uncertainty, Work Needs to Go On
With little warning, people are expected to successfully and efficiently use their home office technology to write, research, communicate, hold virtual meetings, make transactions, and keep business going.
There are amazing technology tools available to support working virtually. Many are easy to use. Some are free. Everyone can be productive and work collaboratively with others without the need to commute.
Working Efficiently, Productively, and Safely
But often, people are left to fend for themselves as they try to figure out how to get their home-based workspace up and running in an effective, secure, and professional way.
Why are all my devices functioning so slowly?
How do I connect the computer, the laptop, and my tablet with my printer? Do I have all the software I need? Is the data I’m responsible for being backed up? Do I have proper secure collaboration tools? Am I using encrypted data transmission? Are my computer and mobile devices continuously being monitored and are they secure from hackers?
