Working from home is a given now - but it doesn't mean we need to compromise security
Now that everyone has dispersed and working away in their kitchens, bedrooms, studies and patios, the unfortunate reality is that hackers will soon follow. Your team have your company data with them, connecting to home networks and devices setup with little thought about security
Number one on the list of IT priorities this month is the end of support of Microsoft Windows 7 devices - these machines are now unsupported and are a security risk to your business. If you’ve been putting off replacing or upgrading, now is the time!
This is going to be the next big thing in IT security exploitation and it has the potential to be highly destructive to any business who is using Office 365.
This month there are a few items on the agenda and as per last month, I’m going to try and keep the IT security side of things brief!
In regards to Microsoft desktop operating systems. Microsoft will end support for Windows 7 on the 14th of January 2020. This means you will no longer get security updates - this is a bad thing!
