Your 1st IT Security Resolution for 2018

Happy New Year! As your Resolution #1, make this the year that you increase the security of Information Technology both at work and at home. And start with your own PC. If you haven’t updated your version of Windows 10 in a while, make sure you do soon. Microsoft recently ended support for early versions of Windows 10 which means you won’t get important security updates and fixes.

To find out which version of Windows 10 you have, enter Settings into the search bar and hit Enter.¬† Select System > About. The version will be listed under Windows Specifications. If you don’t see Version 1709, you need to update your version of Windows.

Microsoft provides a free tool called the Windows 10 Update Assistant that will double check your installed version and take care of any needed upgrades.

If you have any questions or need a hand, contact us and we’ll be glad to assist you.
