CHICAGO - April 23, 2020 - PRLog -- Chicagoland Chats brought on Chris Higgins from FutureLinkIT to share some important things that just might save the business time and aggravation later. The COVID-19 impact is making business owners panic as it is.  Having the right technology and tools to keep operating is key.

Higgins shares the biggest question is, "What does every user need access to?".  This can vary by department.  The demands from the accounting department can be very different than those in the shipping or account management.

You need to make sure there is an up to date antivirus on the computer you are working on at home.  Then you should run a full virus scan on the computer. Millions of computers pick up viruses or other malicious software every year that creates problems trying to do work on a computer.  This will also keep files and other information a little more protected for the business.
