Strategies for Remote Workers and Students

Tip #1 - Get a Workspace

Sometimes it is hard to rearrange your life, but it is much easier to rearrange your home. If you are being asked to work from home, or if your kids are going to be telelearning or doing a hybrid approach like many schools are doing these days, a space to do work is crucial. It gets a little hairy when online school and work overlap, but most people’s homes are filled to the brim with leisure space. You’ll need a dedicated workspace if you want to get anything done. 

Tip #2 - Prepare Like You Always Would

Just because you aren’t going to leave the house doesn’t mean you should act like you aren’t. A great way to get yourself in a productive frame of mind is to get up and go through your routine like you would if you were leaving all day. Sure, your cat will still try to sleep on your desk, but getting in the right frame of mind is really important if you want to be your best during the workday.

Tip #3 - Limit Your Social Media Use

It’s completely understandable that when you are home that you would want to engage with people via social media. The problem is that you are expected to be working or doing schoolwork and social media is a never ending distraction. To facilitate this change, it is a good idea to remove social media shortcuts from your work browser or use a whole other browser for work. You can also choose to use an incognito window for work so that you don’t have as easy of access to your social accounts. 

Tip #4 - Understand When You are Most Productive

Even when you were working from the office or going to school, you didn’t spend all day focused on your work. Most people don’t work like that. The ones that claim to typically sign the checks. You need to know when you are most effective and buckle down during those times. Save your most difficult tasks for times when you are at your best and your workday will get easier. 

Tip #5 - Make Sure Everyone is On the Same Page

In order for you to be productive you need to sustain focus. If there are constant distractions coming from the other people at your house, you likely won’t get much done; and what you get done will likely not be your best. You need to communicate your needs and expectations with the people who are around you. Set ground rules that make everyone understand that when you are at work that you are not to be disturbed. It’s hard to work from home if people keep bothering you all day long. 

Tip #6 - Communicate with Others

While you try to manage your distractions at home, you need to understand that you still have a team out there that works more effectively if you are on the same page, too. Be sure to reach out to your co-workers to talk about work or life every once in a while. You are working from home, not the Sahara Desert (unless that’s where your home is), make sure the people you work with know you’re still alive. 

Working from home or going to school from home can be tough, but if you take a little time and effort to make it worthwhile the sky's the limit. If you need to talk to an IT professional about getting your team the tools they need to work remotely, or if you would like to pick our technicians’ brains, give us a call at (954) 834-2800 today.

Do You Know What a Strong Password Looks Like?

What is Password Hygiene?
The practice of securing your accounts with well constructed, unique passwords is called password hygiene. Having good password hygiene means that you will avoid the use of authentication methods that can be easily compromised. Below is a list of unhygienic password creation practices:

  • The use of personal details, like your name or birthday
  • The names of friends, family, or pets
  • The use of commonly used words (like “password” or a favorite sports team)
  • Using simple keyboard combinations (like “12345” or “qwerty”)
  • The us of repeated login credentials (like username: Cornoa2020, password: Corona2020)
  • Using short passwords 

If you are now worried that your passwords are easily guessable, don’t fret. Here, we’re going to outline some strategies you should stop using immediately as they no longer provide the value they once did to keep your accounts secure. 

  • Alphanumeric Switching - This is just a fancy euphemism for turning some of your letters in your password to numbers. If you’ve been making passwords for any length of time, you’ve probably taken part in this practice. The problem is that it is ineffective against the modern hacking software designed to crack passwords.
  • Length Requirements - For much of the past decade, if you needed to make an account password, it had to be a certain number of characters. According to the Nation Institute for Standards and Technology (NIST) longer passwords are actually hurting your chances of keeping an account secure as they are harder to remember. 
  • Banning Cut and Paste - This practice was only done for a few years, but industry leaders now find it to be a pointless security gimmick. It eliminates the availability for users to use a password manager, which is one of the best practices for password-led security in 2020. 
  • Password Hints - If you set up online banking anytime in the past decade you were asked a series of questions that would allow you to gain access to your credentials. This isn’t as effective nowadays as more information about users are available online. 
  • Too Frequent Password Changes - You’ll still want to make users change their password, but having them do it so frequently that they forget their credentials can be a major problem for a business. 

Best Practices of Password Hygiene

We have come to recommend that users create passphrases made up of at least three words that don’t have any correlation. In this method, if you want to use replacement characters (like the aforementioned alphanumeric switching), it has value. For example if you were to make the

 At KB Technologies, we recommend that users use a passphrase made up of at least three words that don’t have anything to do with one another. We also believe that using replacement characters can have value in this method. For example, a passphrase of “japanlovessushi” is not in itself secure, because it’s a common phrase, but a passphrase of “japanlovesenchiladas” is better. Use substitution methods to add security from there.

Understanding FinTech and Its Impact on Businesses

Defining FinTech

Financial technology, or FinTech, describes the services and solutions that are now available to assist individuals and businesses alike in properly managing their finances. This application of technology has exploded with options in the past few years, providing more options for people without the solutions themselves carrying a substantial price tag. Many established financial institutions have also implemented FinTech to give their customers secure access to various services and tools.

As you might imagine, this demonstrates quite a shift from the origins of FinTech, which was basically a tool for financial institutions to use behind the scenes. With the industry’s growth, the customer soon became the intended user, and now, these solutions provide access to bank accounts, credit cards, stock portfolios, and insurance policies alike.

What are the Most Common FinTech Services Today?

As more FinTech-powered applications have been developed, the potential uses for these tools have been expanded upon considerably. In addition to the assorted solutions listed above, there are now apps that allow users to send payments quickly and easily to retailers and other users. To name a few examples of these, think PayPal and its subsidiary, Venmo.

Other varieties of FinTech have also popped up. FinTech also includes crowdfunding platforms like Kickstarter and GoFundMe, assisting users to collect donations for business ideas and other goals. Cryptocurrency is an example of FinTech that has become so popular, it spawned its own application ecosystem.

FinTech Can Also Be Used by Businesses

Today, developers have created a litany of FinTech tools and applications designed for business purposes. Using these tools, companies can secure loans and otherwise access the financial resources they need to manage to ensure efficiency is preserved in their operations. Many of today’s dynamic business management platforms also integrate with FinTech applications, assisting businesses as they interact with financial institutions and crunch the numbers, as they say.

Monitoring your organization’s finances without incurring too much cost is key to properly distributing and investing your available resources. FinTech can help you do so, and KB Technologies can help you properly make use of it. To learn more about the options your business has to consider, reach out to us at (954) 834-2800 to start a conversation.
