Cathy’s Corner – June 2022

Everyone has a different tolerance for risk. I enjoy trying new experiences, going to new places, etc. Sometimes it’s a risk—you don’t know what to expect, will you enjoy it and more. For me, the risks of trying these new experiences are well worth the rewards.

Cathy’s Corner – May 2022

I believe one of my keys to success is a love of learning new things. I like to try new activities; read books; attend sessions where others share their insights, knowledge, and experience; watch TED Talks, videos or documentaries and more. We’re so fortunate to live in a world where the opportunities to learn are constantly expanding.

Time for some target practice…

If I had invested a hundred dollars every time someone I spoke with about cyber risks said that they had nothing of value or interest, I’d be a wealthy gal. So many assume that they do not have to worry about cyber risks and put little-to-no thought into protecting themselves or their organization.

Cathy’s Corner – March 2022

March Madness is upon us... as a Duke grad, it’s fun to tune in to basketball games and relive my college days camping out to get a spot in Cameron Indoor Stadium to see Duke play UNC, our biggest rival. But March Madness is not just about basketball.

Cathy’s Corner – February 2022

Growing up in Cary, NC, we didn’t often have snow days; but when we did, it was great! No school for several days because the area simply wasn’t prepared for snow removal since it occurred so rarely. I wish cyberattacks were as rare as those snow days of my youth.

Cathy’s Corner – January 2022

A new year often comes with change. While I can sometimes find change a bit scary, I find focusing on what’s important to me and looking for the humor in a situation makes it easier to manage my fears and the stress of change. At IT Radix, we're changing our security software platform to better address cyberthreats, we’re adding new functionality to better serve our clients (especially with the new work from home model and ever-changing schedules), and we’ve expanded our expertise, especially in areas associated with Microsoft 365.

On a personal level, I believe one of my keys to success is to never stop learning and embracing change.

Cathy’s Corner – December 2021

IT Radix is a first responder in the IT world, and like a hospital with an emergency room, it can be very challenging sometimes. Being positive is key. From solving technical issues to helping a client expand and grow, I know our “can do” attitude helps our clients succeed.

Cathy’s Corner – November 2021

Growing up, I was taught to give back and help others in need by giving of our time in addition to financially. Sometimes that meant collecting food for the hungry, tutoring in school, picking up trash along our roads, or just being there for someone who was house bound or in a nursing home.

Cathy’s Corner – October 2021

Making sound business decisions requires looking at a situation from multiple perspectives and developing a course of action that is beneficial for all. This is particularly important when it comes to cybersecurity.

At IT Radix, we frequently need to make decisions about how to do things securely for our clients or recommend how our clients should secure their technology and sometimes, quite simply, it’s not convenient.

Cathy’s Corner – September 2021

Many talk about having work-life balance, but to me it’s a work-life blend. Over the years, I’ve found that my time spent on work vs “play” has ebbed and flowed as different parts of my life have required more attention or time. There are many gurus or programs that will help you determine the right mix for you, how to prioritize and more.
