Two-factor authentication is like a fence. It works really well when it’s used correctly.

We have conducted an audit of users in DUO Bypass Mode. Bypass Mode creates a security risk since DUO is disabled. For a user that is not in Bypass Mode they will know immediately if there is unauthorized access to their account. For a user in Bypass Mode, the hack may continue for quite some time before anyone is aware there is a problem, potentially exposing firm and client data for an extended period of time.

On July 9, 2019, Microsoft will officially retire their SQL Server 2008 and SQL Server 2008 R2 operating systems. Failure to migrate places your data at greater risk of loss with no support from Microsoft.

It's that time again — time to file your taxes early so criminals don't do it for you and steal your possible refunds. This is of special importance after the recent Equifax hack in which most Americans' personal information, including Social Security Numbers, was accessed by criminals. The most effective defense is to file your taxes early — before identity thieves have the chance to do it for you.

You've heard about the Yahoo! hacks and millions of compromised user passwords and data, but have you heard about the follow-on Yahoo! technical support scam?

We wanted to inform you of a serious security breach at Yahoo!
Earlier today, Yahoo! issued a press release stating that 500 million users' accounts were breached. Account information accessed includes usernames and passwords, security questions and answers and other confidential user information.
Yahoo! said in the press release that:
A recent investigation by Yahoo! Inc. has confirmed that a copy of certain user account information was stolen from the company's network in late 2014 by what it believes is a state-sponsored actor. The account information may have included names, email addresses, telephone numbers, dates of birth, hashed passwords (the vast majority with bcrypt) and, in some cases, encrypted or unencrypted security questions and answers. The ongoing investigation suggests that stolen information did not include unprotected passwords, payment card data, or bank account information; payment card data and bank account information are not stored in the system that the investigation has found to be affected. Based on the ongoing investigation, Yahoo! believes that information associated with at least 500 million user accounts was stolen and the investigation has found no evidence that the state-sponsored actor is currently in Yahoo's network.
If you were a victim of the attack, we encourage you to review these steps you can take to file a report and help protect yourself from identity theft.
Yahoo! also recommends – as we do, too – that users take advantage of two-factor authentication to provide an extra layer of security to their Yahoo! accounts.
Yahoo! is not what we would consider a best-of-breed solution for email or other business matters.
