In times like these, we get to learn a lot about our organizations and how they handle emergency plans. While we are lucky to be able to work from home, many companies may be learning that they do not have all the technology necessary to conduct business from home as seamlessly as they had hoped. Do companies have the capabilities to transition, track digital transformation, and  service their customers without a blow to daily operations?

With a large majority of employees working from home now, it’s important that we reflect on our Remote Workforce plan and to how transition smoothly and prepare for the future. Here are some helpful tips for preparing your organization to transition into a “work-from-home” friendly workforce:

  • Perform Network Vulnerability Scans
  • Implement effective communication through Cloud Collaborative Platforms
  • Establish Secure Channels for Remote Access
  • Test for capacity
  • Test your Disaster Recovery and Business Continuity Plan
  • Perform backups of critical applications and data
