Don’t lose your cool with technology this summer!
Great news… It’s Summer time and we’re all thinking about our holidays! We thought it’d be a good idea to share some tips to help keep your cool with your IT home & away.
Here are the top three pointers that have affected our customers in the past:
- Whilst you’re melting on the beach don’t let your kit melt at home or in the office! Keeping your server and other office equipment physically secure is obviously vital but so is keeping it well ventilated and cool. Just think before you lock that cupboard door that stays open all year round, will the server over heat, could it be shut down?
- Should I use the hotel WIFI to check my emails? Firstly you’re on holiday… secondly is the hotel WIFI secure, if you’ve not had to put in a WIFI security key then probably not. You may have had to login to a portal and pay for hotel WIFI but that doesn’t make it secure.
- Be vigilant out and about, if your work email is connected to your phone make sure you have a secure PIN or password locking the device (even the finger print sensor is fine). Even when you’ve left the office and the hotel you’ve still got that information in your bag or pocket. Sadly pick pockets target tourists and an unsecured phoned means they could access sensitive details from your email account.
