Over the last few weeks, we have all gotten used to working from home, and adapted to the new workspace. Let’s just take a few moments to review what we are doing and make sure that we haven’t missed an opportunity, or left any holes in our security, or working practices.

Ask yourself these questions:

  • Remote PC’s- are your staff connecting remotely, and if they are using their own device is it secure, with up to date anti virus?

  • Are you using Microsoft Teams to its full potential?
  • Are you missing any important calls?
