Coronavirus: Strategies and tools for remote work during a worldwide pandemic


Along with worldwide hysteria and fear, the novel Coronavirus is also affecting the way we work, run businesses, and go about our daily lives. Unfortunately, the viral Coronavirus isn't just a threat to our immune systems, but it can be a significant cause for concern regarding cyberattacks as well. Whether you're in forced a two-week quarantine or taking safety precautions on your own from the virus, a major surge of folks has been working from home. With this new era of working outside the formal office, how will you ensure the integrity of your work remains unscathed? We've compiled a list of the best tips, tricks, and tools to get the most out of working remotely.

How to keep business running as usual:


While the Coronavirus has shaken the world, many of us still have to conduct business as usual. This can mean having employees work from home, canceling all company travel, and forgetting about any meetings in person for the foreseeable future. Follow the tips below to create a comfortable remote working environment for your employees.  

1. Strong Internet Access Some of us may take reliable WiFi for granted. Keep in mind that some of your employees may not have the luxury of lighting fast internet access at home. If that's the case, you may want to invest in mobile hotspots for your employees.  


2. Remote Work Devices Of course, your workers will need access to a laptop, but don't forget accessories like headsets, mics, and webcams too. These will be required for conducting online meetings and web conferences. If your employees don't have these items at home, it's highly recommended for the business to provide these tools. 

3. Collaboration Tools Since meetings in person are no-go at the moment, you'll want to use collaborative meeting tools like Zoom GoToMeeting to help unify communication. This way, you and your team can still hear and speak to each other without having fears of contracting the deadly Coronavirus.
