Today's remote work and school environments enhance cyber security risks. I discuss real attacks and technologies now bypassed due to work at home policies. With so many new devices, and millions of additional individuals working and going to school remotely, there are increased and enhanced threats impacting anyone utilizing devices to access the Internet. I conclude with solutions and dwell on the fact that we all must be diligent to this new world of Internet access.
