Intro

What Changes.  Covid-19 has required us to challenge what was and adapt.  This adaption forced the largest surge in technology reliance.  More people than ever before worked from home, many for the first time.  There were 20 times more video conferences.  We seen internet providers become overloaded and crash do to the shear volume of usage.  Cybercriminals seeing an opportunity with new remote access opened up, quadrupled the number of attacks.  What new normal has this created in how people work?

I don’t need to travel to hold meetings.  Do we still put the same value on face to face meetings?
