As of January 14, 2020, Microsoft will be ending their Extended Support for Windows 7, Windows Server 2008/R2, Office 2010, and Exchange Server 2010.
This means that any business or user who is actively using a workstation or server that is operating any of these products will immediately put their data at risk of a cyber attack.
We recommend upgrading all PCs that currently run Windows 7, Windows Server 2008/R2, and Exchange Server 2010 or you could be putting yourself, your company, and your customers at risk of cyber-attack.
What does cybersecurity expert, Martin Bannister, have to say?
What’s the Cost of Not Upgrading?
Remember the NHS WannaCry attack back in 2017? Well, that very same attack didn’t just happen to them, it happened to many small/medium sized businesses too. All simply because they chose to not upgrade their Windows XP when that too became unsupported.
With attacks like that, on top of the fines issued by the ICO due to the GDPR coming into effect, could your business really afford to take such a risk?
Our mission is never to scare you and keep you up at night worrying about your company’s security. Our mission is to protect your business so you don’t have to worry. We keep you informed on the latest cyber disasters because we have seen first hand the massive effect a cyber attack can have on a business and we want to do anything to prevent them happening to your company.
Even though 2020 is a whole year away, just think of how quickly last year went by and ask yourself if it’s really worth waiting until the last minute and as a result putting your entire company at risk? Give us a call and let us do what we do best and take the worry off your hands!
