Make IT Problems Last Year’s Problems

Around the world, the new year is a time for celebration. It’s a time to reflect and a time we typically resolve to make the most of coming 12 months. We do this by leaving last year’s problems precisely where they belong, in the past year. Many manage to adopt this approach in their personal lives, but it pays enormous dividends to apply it to our businesses too.

The start of a new year is a challenging time for businesses. It can be a good time to reflect on the wins and losses of the previous twelve months.

Time to Refresh Your Passwords

We often tend to be creatures of habit, particularly when it comes to technology. Passwords are a prime example. Many of us use the same logins for multiple websites and applications because we don’t have a photographic memory.

Regularly, in the news today, there are stories about major companies being hacked, their customer data stolen, and their customers left stranded.
