    Review your choices — again. Remote computing is changing so fast that good practices today may not be so good tomorrow. Ask your fellow small-business owners what they are doing to secure their remote access and what works for them. I re-evaluate and tweak my policies on a regular basis —about once a year, during slower times at the office — to ensure efficient, effective, and secure remote computing. Today, we're using laptops, smartphones, iPads, and tablets. In a few years, perhaps brain implants will allow us to compute everywhere. But no matter where we do our computing, we always need to make sure our connections are secure.
