The world has changed, have you?Is your business ready to thrive in the "new normal"
What does “going to the office” even mean anymore?
At the end of 2019, 2020 was predicted to be the “year of remote work.” But even the most optimistic telecommuting advocates never anticipated the launch of the world’s largest work-from-home experiment before the end of the first quarter.
Companies around the world have been forced to redefine what “the office” means for the foreseeable future. Has your business taken the time to really think through the ramifications of this new normal? By now most businesses have figured out how to keep employees connected and working. However, is your business and all of your employees working as effectively and efficiently as possible now? More importantly, with so much change to how/where/when your employees are working, have you consciously stopped and thought through your business resiliency and cybersecurity plans?
What should you do?
Do a full re-assessment of your IT infrastructure ASAP. Make sure you have solid answers in place for the most fundamental questions a business owner should be asking themselves in these new times:
- Are my employees able to work effectively from both home and the office?
- Am I confident I have a holistic cybersecurity plan in place that will keep me, my business, my employees, my clients, my reputation safe?
- Am I confident that I have a rock solid business resiliency and contingency plan in place in case anything (power, fire, malware, insider threat, etc) ever goes wrong?
- Do I sleep well at night knowing that I have an IT partner who will ensure my business is still going to be there when I wake up in the morning?
