In the last few months, we’ve been kept super busy with large scale projects, including several for long-term clients of ours! 🙌
One of these projects involved managing the IT fit-out for a client’s brand new medical centre, from start to finish. They have trusted activIT systems with managed IT services at their first clinic for over five years now, so when they decided to open a second clinic a few months ago we were on board straight away.
Here’s a quick overview of what our project checklist involved:
• Arrange phone and internet connections
• Order and configure server, desktops, phone handsets, printers and network equipment
• Configure regular offsite backups
• Register internet domain and Office 365 tenancy
• Install and test all hardware, including network communication equipment, desktop systems, handsets and printers
• Set up fax solution
• Install all required software
• Continuing to provide IT support and monitoring services at both clinics
That’s just a 30-second summary... phew! 😅
Things have been smooth sailing at their new clinic so far with no major issues, and no stress for the client with activIT systems managing it all on their behalf. We wrapped up on Friday as scheduled, and we're confident that their IT is in perfect health - now, and for many years to come! 👩⚕️👨⚕️

Happy Monday to you all! You know, with #cybersecurity being the hottest topic among the #IT and #MSP community, we got to thinking, who takes advantage of cybersecurity problems? Who exploits them? Who is behind #cyberattacks ?
#Cyber criminals: They attack systems and steal information for profit.
#Hackers : Some hackers are professionals who help companies be more secure, but there are malicious hackers too.
Hacktivists: These people are politically or socially motivated. For example, organizations like Anonymous fall under this designation.
Cyber terrorists: While these are not common, they could become common soon.
Nation states: Nation states are launching cyberattacks against other countries.
These groups can target individuals, companies, or governments.
Employees can access files and applications from just about anywhere using their desktops, laptops, and mobile devices, any time!

It's never good when your password manager has a bug. This brings up a few key points:
1. Patch Management - Always keep your applications up to date.
2. Always utilize Multi Factor Authentication anytime it is available.
3. Do you really want all your passwords on an internet facing server that you really have no control over?
Phishing scams targeting Mac users on the rise with 1.6 million attacks in 2019
Kaspersky caught 1.6 million phishing attacks disguised as the Apple brand in the first six months of 2019. "The owners of MacBooks and iMacs are only rivaled by Linux users in terms of the level of confidence in their own security, and we must admit that they are right to a certain degree: Compared to Windows-based systems, there are far fewer threats that target macOS," said Kaspersky researchers Mikhail Kuzin, Tatyana Shcherbakova, Tatyana Sidorina and Vitaly Kamluk, in a press release.
However, the press release continued, that situation is changing, since the popularity of the latter platform is growing. "Due to this and despite all the efforts that have been taken by the company, the threat landscape for Apple devices is changing, and the amount of malicious and unwanted software is growing," stated the release.

One Way Your Healthcare IT (or lack of) Can Cost You Millions of Dollars
OCR (Office for Civil Rights) is the group responsible for enforcing the privacy and security rules as it relates to HIPAA compliance.
2018 was a record-setting year for the OCR with enforcement cases. The last two settlements in 2018 were the result of IT mistakes. These were not the only cases that were the result of IT mistakes but I am using them to highlight a problem.
These cases date back to 2013 and 2015. Cottage Health had two different breaches that caused tens of thousands of ePHI (electronic protected health information) records to be accessible. The cases impacted approximately 33,349 and 11,608 individuals respectively.
In each case, the breach was the result of an error or oversight on the part of IT staff.
Today we have continued a project of setting up a 70 user network in Liverpool City centre. After the first stage of installing all the comms and data cabling we are now configuring fail over Sophos devices, two rack mount servers with a LAN to LAN VPN to their London site and replication configuration. This is all being completed ahead of the final stage of installing all the users PC's so that our client and their team are setup and ready to work when they arrive.
