Cybersecurity is an active effort. You need to pay attention!

Do you maintain your antivirus software?

How often do you change your passwords?



IT Support Specialist Ann Arbor, MI

Cybersecurity isn't a "set it and forget it" job. It's a constant effort. It's not always convenient to see a notice that your antivirus needs to install an update - but it's essential. It's easy to click on familiar looking emails. When you're working remote it's convenient to hook into the coffee shop WiFi - but that may not be the coffee shop's actual router! Your cybersecurity requires constant awareness.

Do You Use The Same Password For Every Account?

It’s recommended that you change your passwords every 30 days to ensure your cybersecurity. While that may be inconvenient, it does help prevent critical data breaches. Even if you can’t change important business passwords that often, routine changes keep your business safe. That said, the worst thing you can do is reuse the same password for every single account!

It’s easy to just reuse the same password for every single account. People do this in their business as well as their personal lives. Sure, that password could be fifteen characters long – but if you’ve used it for every account, it only needs to be compromised once. Recently thousands of Disney+ subscribers have had their accounts compromised and taken over by hackers simply because they used an already compromised password! Now you have to wonder how many of those people used that same password for their business or at work?

Love To Login To Public WiFi?

Love to work at a coffee shop?
Public WiFi spots are a big cyber security risk - make sure you're protected.



Double Check Your Emails!

Just because the name looks “familiar” that doesn’t mean it’s from someone you know. Hackers and scammers are very clever and use any number of schemes to cloak their identities to make them look like someone else. That email that looks like it could be from a client or relative, it could well be a fake account designed to get you to open the email and click on a link. If you’re not sure – ask. If it’s a business client email – email that client directly and ask if they sent you that message.

It's A Race To Upgrade Windows 7!

You've still got time to upgrade Windows 7 and Server 2008 - but the clock is ticking!

January 14th is getting closer and closer. As we inch each day to the end of support for Windows 7 and Server 2008, businesses, local governments, and federal agencies are racing to update their systems. If you have a number of work stations, Microsoft is offering a subscription-based stopgap to keep security updates alive for Windows 7. These Extended Security Updates can last for up to three years – however – the price keeps going up year over year.
