FBI Bulletin: Are you protecting your computer?

On October 2nd, the FBI issued a warning that malware, ransomware, and other sorts of cybercrime is on the rise, detailing steps you and your business can take to protect yourself. We’re glad the FBI caught up! If you’ve listened to TechBldrs’ advice before, you’re likely already putting into action the defensive steps the FBI recommended. Or, if you’re one of our clients, we’ve been doing them for you. The best time to start following these tips? Right now, before you need them.

Consider a VoIP Solution for Your Company’s Phone System

Regardless of the ubiquity of texting, e-mailing, or instant messaging in business communications, there will never be a substitute for telephony. Short of speaking to someone in person, it’s perhaps the best method of communication in business; telephony isn’t asynchronous and there’s instant feedback. Ignoring the youthful lust for asynchronous messaging — and with it, the wholesale excision of small talk and courtesy — there will always be a need for a reliable method of connecting people in real-time.

The Importance of Effective Backup Infrastructure

Arguably one of the most important facets to any successful IT Department is the implementation of an effective backup infrastructure. Though backups may seem like a purely technological concern to any organization, the hard and unforgiving truth is that a lack of disaster recovery preparedness has far-reaching consequences, and should be considered in any risk assessment.

Ten Rules About Technology

Being in the technology business, I have a love-hate relationship with technology. The kid in me loves the new shiny stuff, but the realist in me has to have a cynical view when trying to find a real world application. Like most geeks, I own more defunct technology that we just don’t want to part with, but have no use for.
