On a local level, things are fine.  Even old boss is landing okay.

This just to be more convenient?

So like a couple levels of computer operation skill, to gamerspeak it, and a special program but no actual crypto signal or password? Good thing they have a nice, stable office environment and a loyal base of lawful good employees.
