Resources for Remote Workers
It’s natural for IT workers to first ensure that frontline and supporting workers in an organization have a secure and productive way of performing their usual tasks remotely. After all, a reduction in the business’ ability to provide its products and services correlates pretty quickly to a drop in revenue, cashflow and profitability. Without this financial sustainability, the IT department has no organization to support.

Almost everyone has had their work-life routines interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic. Many people are working from home for the first time, leaving vast numbers of workplaces sitting empty. It’s vital that organizations continue to protect the resources that reside on-premises. As we’ve seen already, attackers are using COVID-19 to extract information from people by preying on their fears.
We wanted to bring a little fun (and geekiness) into your homes, so we created a Developer Activity Book. In it, you'll find seven coloring pages, a crossword puzzle, a word search, and a logic puzzle. The content is family friendly so the kids will have fun coloring and learning and the adults will find the more complex art relaxing to color and the puzzles to be a good computer science refresher.
As the response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to evolve rapidly around the world, the health, safety and well-being of our employees, customers and partners remain our top priorities. Authorities around the globe are responding to the situation with stricter measures that are disrupting normal routines, which changes the landscape in which we operate. With this in mind, we have several updates to share with you today on how Microsoft, together with our partner ecosystem, is adapting to the current environment to ensure that all of you can continue to learn and get certified on Microsoft technologies, while staying safe.

So, without further ado...Working from home has presented challenges in many areas and it is true for time synchronization on computers used at home to connect to work. More specifically, time synchronization on domain-joined computers used from home is potentially affected due to the challenges of remote connectivity. AD Domains and Forests were designed in an era of high-latency, low-bandwidth work networks and with security as a top criterion. These criteria extended to time synchronization within the Domains or Forests in the form of using NTP protocol enhanced with AD-based security. Time synchronization is also a requirement for Kerberos to function correctly in AD.
