Fitting the Pieces Together

There is a market for everything—2020 taught us that. One of the hobbies that rose again in popularity last year was building jigsaw puzzles.

The Cost of Doing IT Yourself

“I did it all by myself!” Parents are gleeful hearing their young children exclaim those words with delight after mastering a new accomplishment.

Keep IT Safe

Confession time! How many of you manage your computer and online passwords in any of the following ways:

Use the same/similar password for everything
Keep all your passwords written on a slip of paper
Change your password by incrementing the number by 1
Keep a spreadsheet with all your passwords on your desktop

Nothing could be further from the truth! Have you ever thought about what a hacker could do with just your email password? With just access to your email, a hacker only needs to click the “I forgot my password” button for any of your accounts and will instantly have the keys to the kingdom.

We are fortunate to have one of the area’s most preeminent business and cybersecurity insurance firms as a client.
