News, tips and tricks from your friends at CoreTech


March 2016

Hello Valued Reader,

What is one of the quickest ways a hacker can take down your machine and take away from your daily productivity and/or money? --Phishing emails. Yes, you need to be able to recognize one when it arrives in your inbox and not be caught off guard by the inquiries, links and attachments which hackers send. When successful, phishing attempts implant a virus, and/or use your machine to take down a network.

So, shouldn't my spam filter catch the email? As a first line of defense, your security software will catch infected email and do that job well. However, it is important to note that the bad guys are constantly revising and attacking using new methods. Once discovered, security vendors revise their methods and software, and the fight continues. So, your security software will catch the lion's share of infected mail, but it is still important for you to recognize phishing emails on your own in case the fiter does not catch them. If you identify a phishing email in your inbox--delete it.

Yesterday you received a CoreAlert telling you about a new phishing email circulating to companies here in Omaha. Take a look at the graphic and instructions, so that you are familiar with the phishing email and what to do. If you missed the email, click here to view the web page copy.

Working from home is easy (and productive)


So here we are on the verge of spring (thank goodness), and I do have to say this winter gave us some perilous drives to work. In fact, one so icy that my boss declared it a “work at home” day. I was relieved as I live on a hill that is not forgiving and there were no snow plows in sight!

In years past, working from home would have not have been as productive as I had files and software that I need available to get my work done. Now, there are so many different avenues to tap to be productive away from the office that working from home was not an issue!
