I’ve written before about the IT people in your company who probably know more about you than you might think. This now extends to taking your personal devices to a repair shop. You should assume someone might be surfing through your data while working on your computer, and you should decide if you are OK with that or if the physical destruction of the device after being replaced is the safer option.
I’m sure there are still some “old-school” bosses running around who believe the best way to motivate employees is to threaten them and never let them forget that they can be fired at a moment’s notice.
Turns out that they aren’t motivating as much as actively harming them.
Organizations that like to complain about not being able to find talent but also don’t bother to develop it are just leeches on their industry. Do you want more people skilled in cybersecurity or any other skill you’re having trouble finding? Teach it. Develop it. Grow it.
It’s not easy, but that’s how you address a lack of skilled workers. Educational and systemic changes are going to take way too long.
