In last week’s post, I presented a wide range of issues, problems, and recommendations for courts on how the pandemic situation will be in 2021 (and beyond). A significant area of concern is cybersecurity. As luck would have it, the Government Technology journal just published an excellent article on how the widespread adoption of telework is a golden opportunity for cyberattacks on government institutions and workers: https://www.govtech.com/blogs/lohrmann-on-cybersecurity/is-covid-19-making-the-internet-sick.html. I heartily recommend this article, which cites a recent free webinar on the subject that was recorded and available for viewing for a more in-depth treatment of the subject.
As promised, next week we will have a great post about Adaptive Leadership. Until then, stay safe and working for a better tomorrow!
