27 Tips for Working From Home

I spent years working from home. Then I went to an office. Then I split time. Then I worked from home. And all of those iterations were just glorious. Until they weren’t!

For those forced to work from home suddenly, there are some tips in my time in those trenches that might help others. To summarize it all, be mindful and deliberate. But here goes with more specifics (and I would love to learn more so please feel free to comment and add some)!

  • Keep normal hours. One thing that’s worked for me is to still get up at the same time (maybe minus drive time or maybe not). Falling into a rut of sleeping in is easy but we should set alarms both to get up in the morning and maybe even when to go to bed. Drifting outside of our normal hours can certainly cause us to feel depressed. 
  • Take a shower and get dressed. Heck, maybe we should get fancy while we’re at it. I might bust a tux out of the basement for my video calls...

AA20-073A: Enterprise VPN Security

Original release date: March 13, 2020
Summary

As organizations prepare for possible impacts of Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), many may consider alternate workplace options for their employees. Remote work options—or telework—require an enterprise virtual private network (VPN) solution to connect employees to an organization’s information technology (IT) network. As organizations elect to implement telework, the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) encourages organizations to adopt a heightened state of cybersecurity.

Technical Details

The following are cybersecurity considerations regarding telework.

  • As organizations use VPNs for telework, more vulnerabilities are being found and targeted by malicious cyber actors.
  • As VPNs are 24/7, organizations are less likely to keep them updated with the latest security updates and patches.
  • Malicious cyber actors may increase phishing emails targeting teleworkers...

Name Goes Here, code bass=”clash”

On the Twitters not too long ago the question was posed: what topic could you give a 20 minute talk about without any prep? macOS Computer Naming is a thing I can’t find a great canonical resource for on the internets, so here’s an attempt to fill that gap, since the topic would potentially be shorter than 20 minutes, but as it’s said: they go low, we go deep.

What’s in a name?

Names are just labels. Your inventory and/or management system could contain an identifier like the serial number, hardware UUID, MAC address, and/or device certificate to more accurately track a computer (and help with linking it to a user), so IMO it’s not necessary to stop people from renaming their computer in System Preferences in general. We all know that by default it chooses the computer model to name itself, and on a home computer will update that name with whoever was the user created in Setup Assistant (E.g. Testy...
