Rise in employee monitoring prompts calls for new rules to protect workers

As remote work rose sharply during the COVID-19 pandemic, many businesses sought ways to keep track of workers no longer in the direct sight of managers. Now, with remote work strategies still in place — and office re-openings being pushed back —, the use of monitoring tools continues to grow.In fact, the use of new and increasingly powerful technologies to manage and monitor workers has become so common that there are growing calls for regulators in the U.K. and U.S to update rules to protect employees.“We have seen a significant increase of interest in employee monitoring technology through the pandemic,” said Helen Poitevin, VP analyst at Gartner focusing on human capital management technologies. “This continues as organizations plan for hybrid work environments, with employees working more flexibly from home and at the office.” To read this article in full, please click here

How to get more out of Edge (and bolster its security)

I use Edge, the built-in browser in Windows, though I’m very much in the minority. I even think it has the potential to be a better browser than Firefox or Chrome. Case in point: the recent “Super Duper Secure Mode” that has rolled out to the default Edge version after being in beta channels for several weeks. (Let’s call it the “SDSM” setting.)As noted in a past Edge blog post, SDSM provides additional security features that allows you to disable just-in-time Javascript and then enable Controlflow-Enforcement Technology (CET) instead. Just-in-time Javascript has been used in many zero-day browser attacks in the past — thus, blocking it will help protect our systems and platforms going forward. In my testing so far, I have not seen any side effects running Edge in this mode, even when doing online shopping or banking.To read this article in full, please click here

What the media doesn't say about Apple

There’s a real lack of nuance and context these days in so much of the reporting about Apple. Products the company has never announced are declared delayed, while rumored products might be described as being abandoned — not because they are delayed or abandoned, but because those rhetorical terms fit the narratives being put together by the latest breed of crisis journalists.What if everything is true? Some math is simple. One plus one usually equals two. But there are exceptions. And it’s the lack of awareness of those exceptions that's fostering cognitive dissonance in the Apple sphere.To read this article in full, please click here

The future of work: In a hybrid world, office downsizings are coming

As many companies push back a full return to the office because of the pandemic — and struggle to figure out just what the workplace of the near future will look like — a glut of office space continues to grow, particularly in the US.Corporate office leasing remains below pre-pandemic levels, according to Jones Lang LaSalle IP, Inc. (JLL), a commercial real estate and investment management services firm. Though third-quarter leasing volume is up 39% from a year ago, it's still 25% lower than Q3 2019, according to JLL.“This is the slowest rate of increase since the onset of the pandemic," JLL said in its November Global Real Estate Perspective.To read this article in full, please click here

Analyst: Apple's AR glasses will run Mac chips

Apple is now expected to introduce the first-generation of its AR/VR glasses in Q4 2022, and a report from analyst Ming-chi Kuo tells us a little more of what to expect from these things. If true, you'll one day be wearing your Mac like sunglasses.To be fair, a lot of this we've heard already. We’ve known for years, for example, that Apple has been working with Sony on the lenses for these devices and we’ve waxed lyrical ad infinitum concerning what to expect once they ship.To read this article in full, please click here

Apple’s NSO lawsuit targets illegal spying by oppressive regimes

Apple says its lawsuit against NSO Group this week is an attempt to hold the surveillance firm "accountable for ... the surveillance and targeting of Apple users." And it spared no ire in accusing the Israeli spyware company of its selling surveillance software to authoritarian governments — regardless of whether those governments use it to target dissidents, journalists, and activists.NSO Group was already facing legal problems after messenger platform provider WhatsApp filed suit in 2019 for similar reasons. Earlier this month, the US Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals rejected the spyware company’s claim that it should be protected under sovereign immunity laws. In the high-profile case, WhatsApp alleged NSO’s spyware was used to hack 1,400 users of the messaging app.To read this article in full, please click here

Ransomware is a threat, even for the smallest of businesses

If I’ve heard it once, I’ve heard it a million times: “My business is too small for a cyber crook to bother with me.” Oh, my friend you are so, so wrong. No company is too big or too small for a ransomware dealer to come knocking at your virtual door.A recent report from Webroot, The Hidden Costs of Ransomware, found the vast majority—85%—of managed service providers (MSPs) have reported attacks against small and midsized businesses (SMBs). Despite that appallingly high number, just 28% of SMBs consider ransomware a worry.To read this article in full, please click here

About Apple Business Essentials, I have questions

Apple’s newly announced Business Essentials program seems as if it could be a versatile and useful tool for small and midsized businesses (SMBs). It’s easy to see that the interface is derived from Apple Business Manager, the cloud service for larger enterprise IT shops. (The latter is often used in concert with one of the enterprise mobility management (EMM) or unified endpoint management (UEM) providers who tap into Apple’s mobile device management platform (MDM).)Apple Business Essentials is available now in beta and provides tools including iCloud+ for Work, AppleCare, 24/7 Apple support, device and application management, and automated setup using Collections and Smart Groups. The service will be available in the US initially, with prices ranging from $2.99 a month per user to $12.99 a month per user depending on number of devices and storage needs.To read this article in full, please click here

Will the shift to Windows 11 mean more e-waste?

With Windows 11 now here, there has been a lot of doom and gloom talk about the 2025 end-of-life for Windows 10. But between now and 2025, we first have to figure out what to do with a lot of computer hardware that can’t run Windows 11.In my own home computer network — two desktops, two laptops and a Surface device — only the Surface can support Windows 11. The rest either don't have a qualifying Trusted Platform Module (TPM 2.0) or use a processor that won’t meet Microsoft’s requirements. My office isn't much better: out of approxmately 20 computers, only two can be updated to Windows 11.To read this article in full, please click here
