Being “without” has a way of making one realize how being “with” makes life so much easier. Our company relies on the internet and telephone services to conduct daily business. Today just before lunch, both of those services went out. I was quickly reminded of how important those two services are to the survival of my business.
After three calls to the telco they finally informed me that there was an issue in my area and that the telco is aware of the issue and working to restore services. With no phone or internet service, I decided to unplug for the day…
For those of us who are always connected, going even a couple of hours without checking email seems absolutely out of the question. Being forced to unplug today gave me the time I needed to focus on personal matters that I have put off for far to long. Even without my much relied upon telco services I managed to have a very productive day. Of course I checked my iPhone a few times for text messages throughout the day but my service on the Edge network is so slow I didn’t bother with anything else. It was a great change of pace and inspired me to make it a point to unplug more often.
I highly recommend unplugging once in awhile!
We have had a few clients of late that are using an all-in-one product for securing their workstations. The new security suites work well but dont think you are completely protected with a security suite that claims to protect everything. Always remember to implement layers of security and not rely on one single layer of protection when securing your network or workstation.
The Twisted Pair suggests to layer with a good anti-virus program and a good anti-malware or adware program to keep your system protected. Also make sure you have the latest Windows updates/patches and service packs installed to ensure proper protection. One last thing, do not rely on FREE anti-virus or anti-malware programs. These programs work well but do not provide the same quality of protection as a paid versions does. Paid versions of software implement a real time protection that the FREE version of the same software may not. Before you decide on a security suite or stand alone product, make sure your know what kind of protection is being offered. And remember, the protection is only as good as the user so make sure you read that pop-up before clicking on it.
If you or your company needs advice on network and workstation security, feel free to contact us anytime. Its your data so make sure it is protected properly.

I will have to double check but I think my sister was only 11 (1989) when she got her first mobile phone. This was the first mobile phone in our family. Can you imagine doing mobile forensics on this?! The purse phone!
