The new year is the perfect time to revitalise your approach to technology. As we step into 2024, let’s embrace a “New Year, New IT,” approach, exploring the intricacies of leave procedures in our digital age, and provide essential tips for traveling with your laptop and using public Wi-Fi securely.
Best Practices for New Hires:
Welcoming fresh faces to your team is exciting but ensuring that new hires seamlessly integrate into your digital ecosystem is equally crucial. Start by notifying your IT provider that you have a new employee as soon as possible. This proactive approach allows us the time to efficiently generate licenses, procure devices that fit the specifications of your existing setup and provision devices tailored to the specific needs of your new team members. Procuring devices directly from A Corp ensures a seamless integration with your IT solutions
Providing new employees with a comprehensive how to guide to your company’s IT infrastructure during onboarding should include an overview of essential software, support procedures, communication platforms, and cybersecurity protocols. At A Corp, our goal is to assist you in setting you up for success from day one.
Navigating Leave Procedures in the Digital Age:
In the age of remote work and interconnected technologies, leave procedures have taken on a new dimension. Ensure that your team is well-versed in the digital aspects of taking time off. This includes updating digital calendars, setting up out-of-office auto-replies, and securely managing access permissions for team members covering responsibilities during the absence. A seamless process ensures a stress-free break for the individual and uninterrupted workflows for the team. Ensuring your digital presence remains secure during leave should also be top of mind.

Traveling Tips with Your Laptop:
For those on the go, a laptop is not just a device; it’s an office on the go! Traveling with your laptop opens a world of possibilities, but it also poses security challenges. Invest in a robust laptop bag with anti-theft features, and always keep your device and data encrypted. Backup essential files before your journey and ensure your laptop’s software is up to date to fend off potential cyber threats.

How to Safely Use Public Wi-Fi:
In a world where working from your favourite coffee shop is as common as working from your desk, Public Wi-Fi is convenient but can pose security risks. Our general recommendation is to avoid using Public Wi-Fi wherever possible and opt for a mobile connection such as your phone hotspot. If using Pubic Wi-Fi can’t be avoided, always connect to secure networks when possible, and if you must use open/unencrypted public Wi-Fi, consider employing a Virtual Private Network (VPN) for an extra layer of protection. Avoid accessing sensitive information on public networks and regularly update your passwords for an added security boost. It also doesn’t hurt to read the Terms and Conditions on that splash page you’re bound to click through…
