Security Update: Office 365 Phishing Attempts

We recently sent a message to our clients warning them of an increase in phishing activity. We find it to be so rampant that we wanted to make this information available to the public as well.  For help with your business IT and security contact Tabush Group.

Over the past few weeks, we noticed an uptick in ‘phishing’ emails, which appear to be from Microsoft Office 365 or other popular cloud service providers, trying to get recipients to provide their log in credentials or other sensitive information. While we employ many layers of defense from top vendors for email filtering and content security for our clients, the bad guys are hard at work trying to beat the security systems; and sometimes, these things get through.

We want to provide you scenarios that you and your colleagues should be mindful of. Always be suspicious of anything that appears out of the ordinary, including:

Signs That it's Time to Move to the Cloud

Five years ago moving an application or function to the cloud was not always the best option, but when it comes to business technology today, a cloud migration is almost always a foregone conclusion.  Most cloud-available services have made tremendous improvements in features, performance, and security. Connectivity to the cloud (both wired and wireless) is faster, more reliable, and available practically everywhere on the planet (including on airplanes and cruise ships). What’s more, while the cost of cloud options has come down somewhat, non-cloud systems have not changed much in price, often making cloud a better value of the two.

Making the move to the cloud for any business IT-related function is always somewhat of a process, so how do you know when to consider moving any part of your company’s IT to the cloud? Does the old adage “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” apply to IT as well?
