Improving Office Worker Productivity
Work Place Productivity Best Practices
A tidy workplace is a more efficient one. Clutter is a constant distraction and as much as your staff may try to convince you that they know where everything is, the reality is often far different.
Neutral shades for walls can work well but ensure that your workplace is always well decorated and vibrant. Decorating a workplace with art and photographs is a great idea.
Ensure that you and your staff are all comfortable while working and ensure that they are sitting in an ergonomically correct way.
If your staff is predominantly using computers in their work a larger monitor makes a real difference. Two monitors are even better still - you can literally do two things at once. It may seem like a huge additional cost but if you can increase productivity by just 10% an additional monitor will soon pay for it.Improving Office Worker Productivity

Balance between Privacy, cybersecurity, and compliance is not there yet
How many enterprises are compliant with all mandated security and privacy requirements
There is a misconception that privacy and security are in conflict with each other, and thats not true. Privacy purists often think that cybersecurity tools track a lot of personal data and invade privacy.
There now is an evolution of the privacy community, driven by significant data breaches. Lots of Personally Identifiable Information (PII) has made its way into the Dark Web, thanks to some of the huge data breaches of the past few years, so much so that the price of Social Security numbers has dropped considerably. Unless organizations are required to implement security, the fight to protect privacy wont be won. Thats been a shift over the last five or so years. When that happens, there will be a much better relationship between the privacy community and the security industry, and this will spill over into rules and regulations.
Thre should be a set of federal mandates that are designed to level the privacy playing field when it comes to consent but at the same time obligating organizations of all sizes to take privacy seriously.
GDPR is a good start because it provides a good roadmap on how to think from a privacy point of view.Balance between Privacy, cybersecurity, and compliance is not there yet
