Our very own Jason Zurro was front and center stage last week at Dawson Elementary School's Career Day. Jason was invited to speak to Dawson's 2nd grade class about his role as a Network Operations Manager and discussed several different areas of interest within the IT industry.
One overlooked issue for many businesses, is having everyone setup as a local administrator.
By making too many people local administrators, you run the risk of people being able to download programs on your network without proper permission or vetting.
Backing up your data regularly is an overlooked step in personal online security. The top IT and security managers follow a simple rule called the 3-2-1 backup rule. Essentially, you will keep three copies of your data on two diverse types of media (local and external hard drive) and one copy in an off-site location (cloud storage).
If you become a victim of ransomware or malware, the only way to restore your data is to erase your systems and restore with a recently performed backup.

Phishing scams are nastier than ever this year. In a phishing scheme attempt, the attacker poses as someone or something the recipient recognizes and attempts to trick the target into divulging credentials, clicking a malicious link, or opening an attachment that infects the user’s system with malware, trojan, or zero-day vulnerability exploit.
Let's ask a question. If you don’t know something is a problem, how can you take action?
One of the biggest problems businesses are facing is stolen credentials from data breaches. These credentials are sold on the dark web and are used to gain access to business networks to steal data, deploy malware, or encrypt and hold the data hostage.
With the seemingly ever-present news of security breaches and ransomware attacks hitting major companies in our supply chain, doing nothing is not an option. Stolen credentials are an easy way for cybercriminals to "walk in the front door" and take what they want or encrypt everything and hold it for ransom.
