Think before you post! The dangers of TMI

Social media gives you the ability to share stories about your day, post pictures of your food, or disclose your location with your friends. But if you’re not careful, you could be inadvertently leaking sensitive information to strangers. Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, and Instagram contain a treasure trove of data about ourselves and our businesses that can be used to fuel hackers’ malicious schemes.

Why you need a vulnerability assessment

Despite advancements in network security technologies, cybercrime success rates are still at an all time high. The biggest reason for this is because most companies still don’t have the right protections in place to deal with current cyberattacks. In fact, a 2017 Hiscox Cyber Readiness Report found that out of 3,000 companies in the US, UK, and Germany, 53 percent were “ill-prepared” for an attack.

Preparing for the next wave of ransomware attacks

Last month’s massive ransomware attack affected several thousand organizations including UK’s National Health Service, FedEx, as well as many small- and medium-sized firms. According to news reports, the ransomware, known as WannaCry, infected over 300,000 machines across 150 countries.

How to protect yourself from VoIP eavesdropping

Voice over Internet Protocol (VoIP) has become the telecom tool for businesses. Since calls are transmitted via the internet, VoIP often costs less than traditional phone services, and its sophisticated call routing features enable employees to communicate anytime, anywhere, and from any device.

Why your business needs email encryption

Despite advancements in instant messaging and voice chat technology, email still reigns supreme when it comes to office communications. It is, after all, our most intuitive platform for sending, archiving, and retrieving messages quickly and efficiently.

How to Reduce Cloud Security Risks

Although there’s no denying the value of cloud computing, many businesses are still hesitant when it comes to making the migration. Data security tends to be the greatest concern of all since, by definition, you don’t have as much control over where your corporate and customer data is stored and the security around it.

Which Office 365 plan is right for your business?

Businesses looking to migrate to Microsoft Office 365 have plenty of options. They must choose between Business and Enterprise subscriptions, and between those service families they have to decide on Business Essentials, Premium, Enterprise E1, E3, and E5.

Choose the wrong one, and you may end up with a plan that doesn’t add value to your company at all, and nobody wants that.

What can you do with SharePoint?

What can you do with SharePoint?
Everyone is familiar with applications like Microsoft Word and Adobe Photoshop. But when it comes to Microsoft SharePoint, many business owners have different notions about what it’s used for. Some employ it primarily as a file sharing solution, while others use it to create websites.

How unified communications supports disaster recovery

From natural disasters to cyberattacks, businesses in Atlanta have seen their fair share of disasters. In fact, earlier this year, Delta Airlines suffered another huge computer outage that grounded at least 300 flights.

Although a disaster recovery plan is indeed essential for surviving these catastrophes, you must be able to communicate throughout the recovery process to increase your chances of success.
