Security researchers discovered a vulnerability in Windows Hello’s facial recognition programming that could potentially impact Windows 10 users.
Does it warrant much fear?
Experts say no – at least, not to the average user.
The vulnerability has to do with Windows Hello’s camera system.
It uses a camera with an infrared sensor and an RGB sensor.
However, only the infrared image is processed during facial recognition.
This theoretically means that if someone were to get a hold of an infrared image of your face, they could use it to access your computer – and that’s where the threat starts to fall apart.
Whenever a hacker needs physical access to the computer and the computer’s user, they won’t waste their time unless you’re hiding some pretty juicy data.
So, don’t worry, Windows 10 users – you can sleep easy knowing that no one is trying to steal your face.
When you’re working from home, the valuable bonds that you naturally form with your coworkers in the office will be hard to form and maintain – but not impossible.
Here are a few ways that you can build relationships with your coworkers from home.
Communicate (And Listen) Often And Well
That means going beyond just the daily Slack check-ins on progress.
Let your coworkers know about areas in which they could improve, and don’t forget to really and truly hear (or read) what they have to say.
Active listening (or reading) is just as important as communicating effectively yourself.
Create Channels For Building Strong Teams
Strong teams mean increased productivity and satisfaction from employees.
To build strong teams, build channels for those teams to use to communicate throughout the day.
Tools like Microsoft Teams can enable the perfect environment for conversations, file sharing and collaboration.
Find Opportunities For Coworkers To Socialize Online
To get coworkers relating to one another, make online coffee hours (or happy hours!), contests, competitions and classes.
Coworkers who have fun together work well together!
