Updates and Security

Everyone knows that keeping your computer and anti-virus up to date is important.

What most people miss is that with Microsoft and Windows their products only get updated once a month. With the ever-changing nature of the internet and the endless wave of threats; hacking, malware and ransomware. We recommend using third party anti-virus software to keep your information as safe as possible. There are many options available to you and we would love to discuss these options with you.  BRP-IT recommends using Spybot™ ; this program provides updates once a week for the free version, and multiple updates a day for the paid version!

Our BRP-it manager Mason sent us this awesome article that has valuable information about your computer’s protection and all the risks we face now, and will face in the future. We’re touching on some major points he’s focusing on to keep you updated and keep your information safe.
This article was written by David E. Sanger, Sewell Chan and Mark Scott, for the complete article, visit this page.

You may have heard about the recent cyber attacks that affected large corporations such as FedEx, Microsoft, and many foreign countries. What you may not have known is that it is still a threat to not just your personal computer, but to your business and your clients as well. One of the biggest factors is not being protected properly or updating your malware. Most of the attacks have been outside of the US but there is no telling if this will continue to be the case.

So, what can you do?

Never click on a any suspicious e-mail or links: A hospital had to pay roughly $900,000 to repair a breach that was caused by an employee clicking on an unsafe web link. Doing this opens your computer up to many security risks! Although your cost might not be this high, it can be detrimental to your personal information whether financial, personal, client information, etc.

Update your software and protection regularly: According to the article, British government was spending about $64 million to improve cyber security because most computers were still running on outdated software. It’s that important! Making sure that your computer is as protected as possible is never a waste of time or money. The benefits most certainly outweigh the costs.

BRP-it! Do you know what it is & why it’s important?

Information Technology (IT) is more than just computers and networks! We found this awesome article on LifeWire written by Bradley Mitchell and wanted to share some important points regarding IT and your business.

Information Technology encompasses all layers of all systems from computer hardware to databases and servers including internet and phones. Many businesses and corporations add an IT department which is responsible for:

-Computer tech support
-Network Admin
-Databases and software

-Security of all data and networksAccording to Mitchell, System and Network Security issues are a primary concern for many businesses because this has the potential to cause a security hack and not only damage a company’s reputation, but cost large sums of money to fix. With the advancements in technology, it is important to always ensure that your data and client’s information is secure. Using a trusted professional is a great way to make sure your network protection is secure and up to date.
