Corporate legal departments already have their hands full helping organizations to safely navigate the process of returning employees to the office or strategizing how to contend with potential budget cuts on the horizon. But what that means for regularly scheduled software updates to operating systems like Windows or—perhaps more importantly—to remote working tools like Zoom or Microsoft Teams remains to be seen.

“2020 was the year that was supposed to be the year that all of the laggers, all of the people who did not go to Windows 10, finally went to Windows 10. All of those people, they have still got to get to Windows 10. They can’t stop those priorities or shouldn’t, but some of them probably are,” said Christopher Zegers, director of consulting services, legal at Ivionics.
