And Now The End Is Near….. for Windows 7.

And Now The End Is Near….. for Windows 7.

As Frank Sinatra sang in “My Way”… “the end is near, and so I face the final curtain”.  Sombre words for a song about a love affair and also the swansong for Ol Blue Eyes, but there are parallels to the End Of Life approaching for Windows 7.


The End IS Near, in fact in about 10 months at time of writing and this certainly will be the end of an era as Windows 7 was by far the most popular and best operating system Microsoft had launched since Win XP.  Although many thought Mr. Sinatra was past his sell by date when he released My Way, it was one of his biggest hits  However, this is not the case for Win 7 users, who probably all still think it is a perfectly good operating system and there is no need to use something newer (Windows 10).

Cybersecurity or Recession?

Cybersecurity or Recession?

As a business owner going into 2019, with all the economic uncertainties that are going on globally in the US, UK, EU etc, should you be worried more about cybersecurity or a recession?


Simplistically your answer should be Cybersecurity. You may be asking why, but the answer is quite simple. You can do something about Cybersecurity. Unless you have global influence then a recession will either happen or not, but you wont be able to affect it happening. True you could plan for it and take necessary precautions to ensure your business survives should a recession hit.  However regardless of this uncertainty one thing is for sure – you will face multiple cybersecurity attacks in 2019 and that is something you CAN prepare for.
