If a work-related thought pops into your mind during weekends or vacations, don’t let it slip away.
You don’t want your employees downloading porn, scanning job boards or playing solitaire on company-owned PCs while at work. So you write a policy requiring that workers access the Internet for business purposes only. You’re in the clear, right? Think again.

You’re a hotshot. You get things done and rarely make mistakes. But even though you don’t screw up often, you’re human.
With upwards of 40,000 computer viruses lurking out there, you need to coach your team to play strong defense.
Today’s two most popular computer utilities programs—Norton System Works and McAfee Nuts & Bolts—promise the same protection.
If your eyes are tired or watery after a stint on your computer, glare may be the hidden cause.
