Are You Cyber-Ready?

As most of us know, cyber threats are on the rise due to the many uncertainties in our world. To combat the imminent risk, last week, we began our three-part Cybersecurity Readiness series.

With the right foundation in place, we can move on to part two, which includes the steps we need to take daily to sustain a robust security strategy.

April Showers Bring May Flowers and a Microsoft Rebrand

 

We have spent a significant portion of this year breaking down the differences between Office 365 and Microsoft 365. The similar names are confusing, and it is challenging to decipher the differences between the applications. Thankfully, Microsoft was aware of the confusion and is gearing up for a grand rebrand on April 21st. Now, these products will have the same encompassing Microsoft 365 umbrella. The hope is that this rebrand will ease the confusion and simplify the choice of which application is right for you. Active with this rebrand are not just name changes, but additional tools. These tools will be brought to you by Microsoft’s smart and intuitive Artificial Intelligence (AI).

Staying Safe On Video Conferences

Congratulations to everyone out there. You have most likely been working remotely for three weeks and hopefully settling into a new “normal” workday. Part of that new “normal” workday for most of us has been a plethora of video conferences. We have made a drastic change from audio-only conference calls to now getting to regularly see what people wear when they work from home.

Technology to Manage Technology

Technology is everywhere. We have access to it 24/7 365 days a year in almost any location. Technology indeed can be a blessing and a curse. It offers us many advantages, although these same advantages can quickly turn into disadvantages. For example, being able to access our data from almost anywhere is helpful but it is also harmful as we can not escape our data and specifically work. No longer are we just working a 9-5 job. Instead, we put in our hours at the office and also check email and many other applications when we should be decompressing at home or on vacation. A recent study found that 2/3 of full-time employees admit to experiencing burnout at work. This is no surprise because we can’t escape work even when we are trying! That is why we are exploring the topic of using technology to manage technology. This might sound counterintuitive but bear with us for a quick read.
