For Lavallée’s organization, Lavery Legal Laboratory on Artificial Intelligence, the cybersecurity concerns included not having enough notebook computers to distribute to the employees, which required them to use their own computers temporarily. The team’s priority was to protect the computers in accordance with internal cybersecurity policies, for example, in using antivirus software. When new computers became available to all, employees were trained in how to use the equipment and software, and how to deal with risks. He says the open-source community has provided advice on enhancing the cybersecurity of his team’s work set-up.

The lesson she has learned from adapting to the pandemic, says Porretta, is that it’s possible to work from anywhere and live a well-rounded life instead of always being in an office. “Now it's tried, tested and true that we can all be extremely productive from home or people [can take] a month and [go] to their cottage and [work] from there. And I think it’s fantastic,” she explains. 

For Lavallée, “having gone through all these cybersecurity measures ourselves, having deployed new tools internally, we are now much more aware of the challenges. And we’re better lawyers in helping our clients deploy tool-making agreements for firms that provide services because we know what we’re talking about. We’ve lived it”.

Goyal appreciates that people are much more receptive to the idea of online collaboration across the world. “[Previously], people were still kind of hesitant about using video technology, for example. But [the pandemic has pushed them] to use technologies and their skills in remote working that are different from working in person.”
