Tech Talk – October 2019

A Note from the President

October is Pumpkin Spice Latte month, pumpkin picking month, and of course ending with Halloween! But more importantly at LMS, October is National Cybersecurity Month.

As you have read every month, we take cybersecurity very seriously, and stress to you to make sure you are doing everything to protect your network and protect your users, which in turn is protecting your most vital asset, your business.

If you have any doubts about how you are handling cybersecurity and protecting your business, reach out to me directly. I’m always available to talk to you about your concerns, questions, and explain how LMS does cybersecurity for our clients.

Lastly, this is your 3-month warning to replace your Windows 7 computers and Windows 2008 servers. January 14th is coming fast, you don’t want to put your business at risk. Plan accordingly!

Be safe out there!
