You’re in the middle of an important phone call, getting a high score in Flappy Birds, or trying to use the parking finder app to find your car in the music festival parking lot when your battery decides to die. Battery life, or lack thereof, can cause real anxiety among smartphone users. Veloxity discovered smartphone owners experienced anxiety over running out of a charge, resulting in 2.6 charges per day. Battery technology is lagging behind other smartphone advancements, such as a large screens on devices like the Galaxy Note and improved graphical rendering chips on higher end phones. While you wait for an all-day battery to come standard issue on smartphones, consider a few ways to keep consumption down.

System Settings

Turn your screen brightness down, as displays consume the lion’s share of your battery. However, your phone has other system settings that greatly improve battery life. One of the primary settings to target are those that keep your phone constantly active. Wi-fi and Bluetooth features scan for appropriate networks and devices to connect to, resulting in a major battery drain. Additionally, using 4G instead of 3G also contributes to battery drain. Keep your GPS feature turned off unless you’re actively using geolocation and keep your phone plugged in when you use it as a navigation unit if you can. Vibrate and haptic response on a touch screen are also battery drains. Turn them off manually or use an eco mode feature or app to handle that for you.

App Avoidance

Check for offending apps. The primary culprit here are those that push notifications to your phone on a constant basis, or are sending and receiving large amounts of data. Facebook is one app in particular you want to disable to conserve battery life, as it uses GPS and sends notifications to your phone. Tethering apps like FoxFi are another major drain on your battery, even if you use USB tethering instead of Wi-Fi. Consider buying a dedicated hotspot device if you find your battery is draining too quickly when using its data. Most apps allow you to control notifications and GPS settings on an app by app basis, so look through the options available.

Portable Chargers

You don’t want your phone give out in the middle of the day, but you also don’t want to invest in a second smartphone battery. A portable mobile charger is a great alternative, as these units typically give you at least 2,000 mAh, with particularly hefty units going up to 11,000 mAh to charge your compatible devices. You have a wide selection. For example, Mimoco’sBatteryBot is a portable charger that has a cute appearance instead of the black, clean line standard style that many chargers come in.

Should Your Business be Worried About HIPPA Regulations?

The response is most likely yes! In fact many businesses and industries have to comply with HIPPA standards and regulations.

Unsure what HIPPA is and why it’s important?  Here is a quick review:

HIPPA stands for Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act.  HIPPA was sanctioned by Congress in 1996 with the objective of enhancing the efficiency and effectiveness of our health care system.  It also determined the guidelines for the security of vital and sensitive patient information known as protected health information (PHI).

PHI makes each of us rapidly identifiable based on our name; social security number; address; birth date; payment information; and our past, present, and future physical and mental conditions and treatment procedures. Shielding this kind of extremely sensitive information is of the utmost importance for any business that handles PHI including healthcare providers, insurers, financial services, and other health related service.

HIPPA built strict guidelines with the HIPPA Privacy Rule and the HIPPA Security Rules characterizing how this delicate information must be protected. Most healthcare providers and organizations work with a HIPPA compliant hosting provider and data center to safeguard information that is online or transmitted over the Internet. The HIPPA Security Principles fall into three classifications:

•Administrative Safeguards requires the assignment of a privacy offer; an annual risk assessment; employee preparation; workforce security and observance to information access standards for all involved with PHI.

•Physical Safeguards oversee four areas of compliance regulations that include facility access controls; workstation use; workstation security; and device and media controls.

•Technical Safeguards outlines the five areas of technology that defend PHI.  Technology must comply for access control; audit controls; integrity; authentication; and transmission security.

The punishment and penalties for HIPPA non-compliance can be extreme.  The financial ramifications can be as high as $50,000 per violation or more!   If you are concerned about your business meeting HIPPA’s strict standards for technology, please give your local Geeks On Call office a call for a consultation.  We have many owners that specialize in HIPPA compliance and regulations.  While we are not giving legal advice, we can certainly help with your technology.

Why Your Small Business Must Have a Back Up Solution!

Posting Date: 05/16/2014  |   Filed Under: Data Back-up, Technology, Tips  |   No Comments
Tags: , , , , ,

It is 2014, and every business needs to have a back up solution and recovery plan in place for their most critical information should a data loss occur.   The cold hard fact is that most businesses are failing in this department because over 40% of Small and Medium Sized Business do not back up their data at all, and that 60% of backups fail when tested!

The time it now for businesses to quit fooling around when it comes to backing up their most important data including client records, QuickBooks files, and other irreplaceable company information.  Here are motivators to convince you to make sure your data is backed up and your business can rapidly bounce back from a data loss disaster.

1.  Human Error: People represent 30% of all data loss; this percentage incorporates accidental deletion, rogue employees, and spills.  While a human error is difficult to prevent, you can at least proactively protect your business by having the ability to revert back to an error free file.  Occasionally employees will not properly update a document or delete a file, so having a plan to restore the lost or inaccurate data is imperative to running your business.

2. Technology Equipment Fails: Technology equipment that you are utilizing to run your business has made great strides forward, but it will not always work flawlessly and may fail.  It is extremely costly, if not impossible for your business to eliminate every failure point in your IT infrastructure, so the best option for your business is to back up your information consistently so you can get the failed equipment back up and running quickly.  This quick action will help you minimize downtime and revenue loss that your business would otherwise incur.

3. Natural Disasters are Unpredictable: Over the last several years Mother Nature has caused chaos when it comes to our technology system though deep freezes, extreme heats, and mass flooding.   Businesses that do not have their data backed up with a recovery plan in place will have a daunting task ahead of them attempting to resume operations in the event of a natural disaster.  In fact, over 80% of all businesses that experience a business interference of more than five days close permanently.

4. Competitive Advantage: It is a bizarre to think that having and backup and recovery solution in place could give you an advantage over your local competition, but it absolutely can! In the event of a local disaster that takes everyone’s technology down, the first one back up has the opportunity to gain all the business of those that are still recovering and not able to meet customer’s needs.

5. Theft: Theft can put your company data at risk in a number of ways including hackers obtaining client information or employee’s computer or mobile device with company information on it being stolen.  Instructing employees about utilizing the internet safely will help protect you against viruses and hackers, but in the event that a device is stolen it gets more difficult to recover.  Having a backup that will make it much easier for that employee to get back to work, and with the growing options in Mobile Device Management you may be able to remotely erase all of the company information off of the stolen device.

6. Compliance Issues: A large number of Professions and industries require all businesses in that niche to have a backup and recovery plan in place.  If you are unsure what is required by your industry you need to find out right away, because if you are out of compliance the fines and penalties that are associated can be costly and is many time more than the actual cost of putting a plan in place.

7. Cold Hard Facts: If the information above has not yet convince you to call your local Geeks On Call owner to discover how our experts can verify you have a reliable and tested back up solution in place, perhaps that facts will:

  • 60% of companies that lose their data will shut down within 6 months of the disaster.
  • Every week 140,000 hard drives crash in the United States. (Mozy Online Backup)
  • 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more due to a disaster filed for bankruptcy within one year of the disaster. 50% of businesses that found themselves without data management for this same time period filed for bankruptcy immediately. (National Archives & Records Administration in Washington)
  • 34% of companies fail to test their tape backups, and of those that do, 77% have found tape backup failures.
  • 2,000 laptops are stolen or lost every day
  • 46% said each hour of downtime would cost their companies up to $50k

We know that it is human nature to believe your business will not have a data loss, unless you have already been affected by a data loss. Data loss can happen at any time and without warning, and if you do not have a backup and recovery plan in place your business will face issues.

We challenge you to think about how much money you are losing every time a server or desktop fails and your employees are not productive or your clients cannot complete orders.  Putting a proactive backup and recovery plan in place today will save you time and money later when disaster does strikes!

Data Backup is More Important Than Ever

Do you think a data backup solution is simply too expensive for your business?

That viewpoint is similar to thinking that insurance for your home is too expensive. Insurance might have seemed expensive until your home is wiped out in a fire and you have lost everything. After the fire is snuffed out, how do you plan to recover? Some things can probably be replaced, but regardless of the expense, certain things are simply irreplaceable. It’s similar to protecting another key asset – your business data. Even in business, certain data, documents, photographs, accounting files and client information might be nearly impossible to replace. When it comes to business data, are you safeguarding your most important company asset with a reliable backup solution?

What Causes Data Loss?
Redefining the Role of Your IT Professional

Any device that stores information is vulnerable to data loss. The causes of data loss are due to a wide range of human errors, technology failures and unpredictable natural disasters. Frequently floods, fires, tornados, earthquakes and lightning strikes destroy both the device and the data. Natural disasters are often followed by power failures that can also wreak havoc on technology.

The theft of equipment and attacks by hackers are widespread problems. Laptop and mobile devices are small, valuable and easily re-sold, making them the target of choice for thieves all over the world. Each year in the United States, over 600,000 laptops are stolen with over 65% never recovered. Hackers, viruses, software bugs and cyber-attacks grab the most media attention, but it’s actually human error and hardware failures that account for nearly 75% of all data loss occurrences.

Data Loss Can Cost Your Business More Than You Ever Imagined
Do You Have an IT Strategy That Delivers Efficiency and Accountability?
If you don’t have a backup strategy in place because you considered it too expensive, let’s redefine the term “expensive.” As a business owner, try to imagine what it would cost or if your company could even operate without your business data including QuickBooks files, client records and order information. Consider the time and expense of attempting to recreate the lost data and notifying your customers that their personal data has been compromised? If those scenarios sound terrible, then review these truly sobering data loss statistics and consider the impact this could have on your business if you don’t have a tested backup solution:

  • 93% of companies that lost their data center for 10 days or more filed for bankruptcy within a year. (National Archives and Records Administration)
  • 94% of companies suffering from catastrophic data loss do not survive. 43% never reopen and 51% close within 2 years. (University of Texas)
  • 30% of all businesses that have a major fire go out of business within a year and 70% fail within 5 years. (Home Office Computing Magazine)
  • 70% of small companies (fewer than 100 employees) that experience major data loss go out of business within a year. (DTI/Price Waterhouse Coopers)
  • 96% of business workstations are not being backed up and are at serious risk. (Contingency Planning and Strategic Research Corporation)
  • 140,000 hard drives crash each week in the United States. (Mozy Online Backup)

 

Be Prepared with a Backup Solution

Unfortunately, we are at the mercy of this mixed bag of data loss disasters. The only plan is be proactive in safeguarding your business’ data with a tested backup solution. To take action with a backup solution, start by analyzing the needs of your business.

For example, do you need to backup your business’ entire operating system or just certain, essential data? Do you want the automatic data backup performed on a daily or weekly basis? Would a desktop backup device be an option for your business or home office? Which cloud storage or online solutions provide a secure remote backup solution that can complement your local backup strategy? Have you considered a personal cloud as a backup solution?

The backup market is huge and is continuing to grow. For business owners, that means there are lots of backup options with many solutions. Plus a reliable backup solution is not really that expensive when you consider the alternatives. We understand that sifting through options and technical details can be a daunting task. You should rely on your Geeks On Call to develop a customized backup solution or confirm that your current solution is exceeding your needs.

“An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure” is certainly true when it comes to a backup protection plan for your business”.

Understanding the Heartbleed Bug

Posting Date: 04/10/2014  |   Filed Under: Internet, Security, Technology, Tips  |   2 Comments
Tags: , , ,

Yesterday an enormous exploit was announced impacting OpenSSL, the open-source software package extensively used to encrypt Web communications. They named this exploit the Heartbleed Bug. Many have questions about what this bug is, how it will impact them, and what they should do to protect themselves online. Hopefully this post will help you answer these questions and more about the Heartbleed Bug.

 
What is the Heartbleed Bug?
The Heartbleed Bug uncovers a vulnerability in the OpenSSL cryptographic library that permits attackers to access to highly sensitive data that is regularly protected by the SSL/TLS encryption methods. This sensitive data includes username, passwords, credit card numbers and information on virtual private networks (VPN’s).

 

What is does?
This noxious Bug allows anyone on the Internet to read the memory of the systems protected by the vulnerable versions of the OpenSSL software,” according to Heartbleed.com. The bug compromises the secret keys OpenSSL utilizes to encrypt online communications. With access to these secret keys, attackers are able to eavesdrop on communications, impersonate other users and steal information.

 

Who discovered it?
The Bug was uncovered a late last week by the Finnish security firm Codenomicon and analysts at Google who then revealed it on Monday. By mid-day Tuesday many websites stated they had already addressed the issue, or were in the process of upgrading their websites OpenSSL.

 

Are you at risk?
OpenSSL is the most commonly used open source cryptographic library and TLS implementation source to encrypt data on the Internet, so the answer is yes you are likely at risk. Popular social sites, your organization’s site, hobby and interest website, commerce or shopping websites and even government sites use OpenSSL and therefore may be impacted by this Bug.

 

What should you do to protect yourself?
Experts suggest that refraining from using the Internet for 2-3 days, specifically from accessing social sites, banking sites, and email accounts will give you the ultimate level of protection against the Heartbleed Bug. This is not realistic for most us, so it is suggested that you change all of your passwords once the OpenSSL update has been installed on the impacted website.

Take Your Business to the Next Level with an Outsourced IT Support Model

Is an IT professional currently handling the technology needs of your business, or are you contemplating transitioning to an outsourced IT services model like many other small businesses?  According to a survey completed by CompTIA 62% of the organizations surveyed planned to make greater investments in Outsourced IT Services (managed services) over the next two years.

If you are thinking about moving in this direction let us help you understand what your IT Service Professional should be doing to support and improve your business technology:

Trusted IT Expert & Advisor: Any IT Service Provider that you choose to work with must be an expert in consulting and providing IT service to small businesses.  The small business is unique in its needs and growth potential.  Additionally, they often come with a diverse and skilled workforce, which is difficult for small businesses to hire on their own.  And finally, they should have a comprehension about your business in order to make technology suggestions that will improve technology and increase profit potential.

Proactive Management: Proactive management of your technology equipment provides information on how your infrastructure is currently running, and allows for advance planning and knowledge regarding equipment upgrades and replacement to avoid disruptions in employee productivity.

Secure & Backed Up Infrastructure: When you move to an outsourced IT support model you no longer have to worry about the possibility of malicious online attacks to your equipment or network should your employees click on an unsafe link or open an infected email attachment.  They will also provide managed backups of all your company information and data so if something is deleted or a natural disaster occurs and everything is lost, they can quickly recover it and get you back to work.

Increased Efficiency & Productivity: They will work to identify slow running equipment and network issues, and schedule maintenance to fix these issues decreasing the amount of downtime your employee’s experience.  Technology upgrades provided by the IT support provider will result in a streamlined workflow that increases business efficiency and employee productivity.

Controlled Costs: An extreme benefit when moving to an outsourced IT support model for a small business is the ability to control and predict expenses.  When you moved to an outsourced IT support model you are given back control of your technology costs through one monthly bill that covers all of your technology needs.

Scalability: Since your IT service provider understands the long term goals of your business, they are able to take them into consideration as they are implementing new technology now and ensuring future growth potential will not be impacted.

IT Support Dedicated to Your Small Business

There are over 23 million small and medium sized businesses in the U. S. who are trying to remain competitive against large corporations with more money and resources. One of the main ways a small or medium sized business can continue to compete with these larger businesses is through the strategic planning and use of technology. Small and medium sized business owners see technology only as a device to increase productivity, increase communication with customers, and decrease operational costs. Expending past these obvious uses is sometimes difficult for small business owners to uncover.
As a business owner you should be able to answer the following questions:
o Is your business running an updated operating system?
o Will your business be impacted by the end of the Windows XP life cycle?
o Is your network secure against cyber-attacks?
o Do you have a reliable and tested backup system?

Smart business owners understand that their “job” is to work on the business, not in the business. Owners can stay competitive and focused by utilizing the functions of an outsourced IT service provider to enhance or even be the small business IT support department. We recommend you explore the following services that can be provided by an outsourced IT service provider
•Cloud Services: Currently 61% of small and medium sized businesses are running some type of cloud based programs. Cloud services give you the ability to have access to reliable data storage and back up systems, and a variety of industry and business software. Cloud based programs gives employees the ability to access many programs and files remotely, expanding their productivity and your profit potential.
•Security Services: With a new virus popping up daily, security services are becoming increasingly more important. In 2013, digital assaults on small businesses had increased by 18% over a two year period. Of the businesses that were impacted, over 60% folded within six months. Absence or inadequate security services can compromise critical client and business information. Additionally, with the end of life cycle for Windows XP happening on April 8, 2014, those who have decided to ignore the warnings you will be leaving their business vulnerable to criminals who are waiting in the wings to attack computers that are still running XP.
•Managed Services: When you take advantage of Managed Services you can really give your business an edge. You have a Trusted IT Service Advisor at your disposal to manage all of your technology and the vendor relationships, you will receive predictable and stable billing, and you are able to create customized plans that fit your business needs. Outsourced IT support is able to provide a helpdesk for your employees to utilize, accomplish specific technology upgrades and fixes, or manage your entire IT infrastructure. They are also able to make technology recommendations when equipment is aging or new products are launching that can make your business more profitable and productive.

Is Your IT Professional Also a Trusted Business Advisor? They Should Be!

As a business owner, one of the best moves you can make is to outsource your IT services to a professional provider. When it comes to outsourcing your IT service needs, there are a wide range of service options that involve varying levels of management responsibilities and costs. An IT professional can provide service for a single specific task such as help desk support or managing network security. At the other end of the service spectrum, an IT professional can assume management responsibilities for a client’s entire IT infrastructure. The advantages of outsourced services are improved operational efficiencies, cost savings and predictable service for a nearly-fixed monthly fee.

Redefining the Role of Your IT Professional
Redefining the Role of Your IT Professional

An increasing number of businesses have switched to the outsourced IT service model. If you are already working with a contracted IT professional, then you have given your business the advantage of a head-start on the competition. The next big question is whether your business is actually making the best use of your contracted IT professional? It is likely that your IT professional is responsible for repairs, fixes and upgrades for your business’ computers and network problems. Computer repairs might be a key part of the contracted job, but there are probably some value-added IT skills that your business might not be fully utilizing.

Do You Need a Trusted Business Advisor or a Computer Repair Service?
Do You Need a Trusted Business Advisor or a Computer Repair Service?
  • Trusted advisor is an important role that an IT professional can fill by understanding the business owner’s goals and long range plans for the business. By understanding the “big picture,” an IT professional can share expert technical information while understanding various solutions, costs and the latest technology trends. Functioning as a trusted advisor, an IT professional can make experienced recommendations that are in the best interests of the business’ long term goals as opposed to implementing quick fix, computer repairs.
  • Decisions about new technologies might not be in the comfort zone of most business owners. How can a business owner be fully versed in technology and able to identify the difference between the latest hype and a proven strategy? Which technology is going to provide the best return on investment? Is it the best strategy to implement a new technology now or wait until next year? Is your business currently compliant with network security requirements? Is your data safe? If your business needs to update its operating system, is now the time to purchase new computers? If your IT professional is acting as a trusted advisor, these larger issues can be explored together with the shared goal being the long term sustainability and success of your business.
  • Technology coach is another important element of the trusted advisor’s role. As a member of the client’s “inner circle,” the IT professional needs to bring a variety of skills to the table including the ability to carefully explain technology solutions. The ability to really listen to the business owner is also critical. One size does not fit all – especially when it comes to technology decisions. A knowledgeable IT professional must be able to not only recommend the best technology solutions, but also make the best recommendations for a business’s particular needs in the context of their industry, finances and long range goals. A proactive IT professional will be constantly evaluating new technology products, solutions and reliable vendors that will best serve the needs of the client’s business.
