Data Loss Prevention
As a precaution, we strongly encourage all clients
to back up their files regularly....preferably daily, and preferably
on different medias. You never know when disaster will strike.
Back up your files to a cloud based service like
Google Drive or subscribe or a service like Mozi or Carbonute.
Remote Assistance: We utilize a variety
of software packages to offers remote assistance to clients.
With your expressed permission, we can remotely access your computer, and troubleshoot most problems you are experiencing with your computer.
Unless a written agreement is signed, and additional security measure put into place, we will never access your computer without you being present at your computer. Anyone calling you, or a webpage claiming that your computer is infected, your computer is locked or blocked, and/or demands you to call them right now is a scam. There is no phone number to call Microsoft, Apple, Norton, McAfee, Google, etc.

Few years we have advised caution to clients using Password Managers like DashLane and LastPass. And we still do simply cause the weakest point of any Password Manager is is the master password. So if you are using a password manager, please use a lengthy complex password. If you need help on how to decide on one, let us know.
Identity Theft and Cyber Crimes
The reality is, no one can stop it. But you can take steps to make it as hard as possible to prevent these crimes.
1. Don't accept random requests from strangers who want to access your computer remotely, unless you requested it. No legitimate business will send you an email, text, call, or popup stating your computer is infected. No One! Not even if the request is from Jesus, himself, directly from Heaven.
