IT Support Blog for Small Business Owners
ANP proactively notified our clients twice last week to inform them about a new IT vulnerability that was announced on Monday April 7, 2014 called the “Heartbleed,” vulnerabilty. For the most part, if you are reading this blog you are likely not a client of ANP’s so I want to take a moment to explain to you (hopefully in a non-technical way) what this vulnerability is all about and offer you some help if you think you might need it!
Back on February 7th, NBC reported on potential security risks at the Olympic Games. There was a lot of controversy about the article itself, but, accurate or a hoax, IT security doesn’t get the attention it should in small businesses. More and more organizations, large and small, are being audited either by regulatory agencies or by existing or potential clients. Years back, news was about virus attacks, followed by malware; today we’re regularly hearing about hacking. Everyone wants to know their data is secure.
