By: Accent Computer Solutions
May 24th, 2019

Trying to keep up-to-date on how to stay safe from cyber criminals these days can be nearly impossible. Most have no idea how or where to even begin. There are plenty of security measures to consider, but a good place to start would be to run the suggested updates on your computers and mobile devices. I know it’s tempting to push the “Maybe Later” button when they pop up, but these updates are for your own safety. Sometimes they add software features, but many times, they’re fixing bugs and plugging security holes. Installing these updates when they come out can help avoid major security problems, such as the one Microsoft is doing its best to fix right now.

By: Accent Computer Solutions
October 3rd, 2018

The best, and arguably the worst, thing about the rapid growth of technology is options. Long gone are the days where chocolate or vanilla were your only choices. In a post-Ben & Jerry’s world of Truffle Kerfuffle and Chubby Hubby, how are you supposed to know what to pick?

By: Accent Computer Solutions
September 17th, 2018

In a recent blog article, Marty Kaufman recounts the story of meeting with a business owner who was panicked and in crisis mode because of a cyber attack. If we could backtrack to the days, weeks and months before the attack, we would probably find that the business owner did not pay much attention to cyber security at all because he didn’t think that a data breach could happen to him. Well, it could, and it did. We can’t go back in time and undo all the damage that has been done by this cyber attack, but we can help other executives avoid stumbling over some common misconceptions that unknowingly increase cyber risk.

By: Accent Computer Solutions
September 11th, 2018

When cyber security is part of your business strategy, it acts like a fitness plan.

By: Accent Computer Solutions
September 5th, 2018

For example, executives sometimes make decisions in the name of productivity or cost savings that compromise security. Perhaps these decisions would be made differently if the executives realized what a risky situation their actions created and they asked themselves these five questions.
