The New Year is here and, with it, the usual (and often broken) New Year’s resolutions. Although resolutions don’t always take, the New Year does provide us the opportunity to take a step back and evaluate behaviors and habits we need to change. Individuals and companies can benefit from making (and keeping) a few resolutions related to tech.
- Explore new opportunities – Tech is always changing, and those who become complacent are often left in the dust by competitors with better equipment, software, and skills. Take the time to consider new tech opportunities, such as those offered by cloud technology like virtual desktops.
- Get smart about passwords – Hacking has become epidemic, as technology has made it easy for even hackers with negligible skills to wreak havoc. One of the easiest and most effective things you can do to beef up security is to choose better passwords for your accounts. Follow your IT department’s recommendations for choosing tough-to-break passwords.
- Clean up your email – Stop wasting time wading through tons of junk mail to find the few legitimate emails you need to read or missing important emails because of the proliferation of junk mail in your inbox. Work with your IT department to set up more effective filters and take the time to unsubscribe from unnecessary email lists.
