The world, as we knew it before COVID-19, has changed and continues to see businesses innovating and evolving to stay open and return to a sense of normalcy. For the dental industry, this means initiating enhanced cleaning measures of their facilities and equipment as their number one goal remains to protect their patients and staff.
Coronavirus is quickly changing the way we live almost all aspects of our life. Front and center in these changes are the shifts in work life, whether at home, the office or both. Although we see states phasing back to in-person work set-ups, the work-from-home option is likely here to stay for a while.
Despite established cybersecurity risk from work from home status, the majority (84%) of US organizations plan to broaden their work from home allowance following the coronavirus pandemic. 70% of IT pros state they are concerned with work from home (WFH) security risks, according to Pulse Secure, proven by the spiked security concerns present during the forced WFH of most businesses during the coronavirus pandemic.
Home network security has always been important in our opinion, but now it’s at the forefront (or should be!) of most people’s minds. Why? A large majority of the U.S. workforce is now working from home. This poses a unique problem for many businesses: concern over the home network security of their employees, especially those dealing with sensitive data.
As COVID-19 rips through the United States and around the globe, it is increasingly affecting both the global economy and the way each and every individual business operates. In a matter of days, your business was likely forced to create new protocols, action plans and management processes to enable your entire team to work remotely.
You may think that remote work is a temporary placeholder for a return to normal pre-COVID times--but we’d encourage you to think again. Even when you are allowed to return your full list of employees to work, there will likely be limitations on the number of people allowed in the office at one time--leaving part of your team still working from home at times.
Where are we in the world of cybersecurity? It’s easy to miss the cybersecurity threats and attacks happening right in our “backyard”. Our goal at PK Tech is to educate and offer proactive steps for cybersecurity safety. It’s important to be aware--without being afraid--of the cybersecurity threats that are real threats for your business.
With a call for social distancing to fight the spread of the COVID-19 virus across the United States and globally, it’s likely your business is navigating work-from-home status with all or most of your employees.
While this brings a slew of new challenges, chief among them is managing productivity and policies for your employees now experiencing the freedom of work-from-home.
Many businesses feel like they’re in limbo during this time: adjusting to a staff working from home, attempting to drive business during a paused economy, and wondering what the near and distant future really looks like.
At PK Tech, we’re still operating and adapting to the times.
Small businesses across America are feeling the effects of COVID-19 government shut-downs. Some more than others, but everyone is feeling it in some way.
