After the latest cyber attack I’ve had a fun weekend making sure all my devices are fully up-to-date with the latest patches. If you’re unaware of what’s been happening, you can read about it here.
I took this as an opportunity to go over all my backups as well. It would be kind of embarrassing for someone who spends as much time as I do at work monitoring and testing backups to not have good backups of my personal devices.
This latest attack one again highlights the need for everyone (companies and individuals alike) to patch regularly and move off unsupported systems.
There is absolutely no reason for anyone to be running older versions of Windows considering that Microsoft offered free upgrades to Windows 10 for over a year.
Sadly it does seem that it takes an incident like this to get some people to upgrade.
Have a good week!
