Hang on… you’re STILL not prepared for The 2020 Problem?

From 14th January, Windows 7 is dead. So is Office 2010. And a set of popular server software.

Microsoft has killed them off, because they’re no longer fit for purpose.

And if you have just one machine in your business still running this dead software, you’re at risk.

We believe that hackers who’ve discovered vulnerabilities over the last year or so, have been sitting quietly, biding their time. And now they will start to exploit those vulnerabilities. Because there’s no-one to patch the software and stop them.

There’s also the matter of GDPR. End of life software is technically in breach of GDPR rules.

We believe thousands of business owners and managers in Essex and Herts don’t know they are relying on dead tech.

It’s nothing to be embarrassed about. Most people are the same – they don’t know what they’re running their business on. And to a certain extent, they don’t care.

We can help you quickly and painlessly. We’ve written a new guide to The 2020 Problem. Explaining why you must take urgent action now.

Fill in your details here to get this new guide emailed to you instantly.

In January, Microsoft is withdrawing support for some of its most popular old business software. This creates a huge problem for organisations everywhere, because when it inevitably fails, it can’t be fixed.

Your email is your greatest tool. And biggest threat

Your email is your greatest tool. And biggest threat Because we rely on email so much to run our businesses, it’s our greatest tool (no matter how much you might sigh when you see how many unread emails you have). But because there’s so much activity in there. And you can receive emails from anyone, it’s the most common way to try to breach your business. Hackers are targeting every business, every day.

Using clever automated tools. In this new video we show you some of the common cyber crimes that start in emails. And how to protect your business. We’re 39d, looking after businesses in Essex and Herts. And we’re very much on your side. Let’s work together to keep the hackers out.

Don’t play Russian Roulette with your Windows software in 2020!!

Did you know that many of Microsoft’s much used software will reach ‘end of life’ in January 2020?

“What can I do about it?  I don’t want to become a target for hackers and leave my business exposed to viruses and none compliance!!”

Sounds scary, particularly as half of businesses in Essex, Herts & Cambs could be affected by the big changes by Microsoft in 2020, but there is a simple answer, but you do need to act now. 

The good news is that you still have time to remove the potential risks and not play Russian Roulette with your systems in 2020.  To explain, we have written an easy guide, a short book addressing the issues and solutions available.

January 2020 is only around the corner, so to safeguard your technology, act now.  Please enter your details below to receive your free book.

Hackers are targeting your business right now

This is 100% true. Because they are targeting all businesses, all of the time.

Whereas once hacking was something done for the challenge and the bragging rights, these days it’s a form of organised crime.

Hackers use automated tools that are constantly looking for vulnerabilities they can exploit.

This is why it takes just one click on a dodgy email to let someone into your entire network.

To know what you’re up against, download our brand new guide: The 9 cyber threats you need to know about now.

We’re 39D Services, looking after businesses in Essex. And we’re on a mission to educate thousands more businesses around here about how to keep themselves safe from hackers.

Cyber crime is the fastest growing crime to affect businesses. When you see what you’re up against, you’ll be better prepared.

One dodgy click is all it takes… to give hackers access to your system

The way that hackers work these days, they don’t target specific businesses.

It’s very likely they’ve never heard of your business. That’s why most owners and managers think that cyber crime will never affect them.

But actually, hackers are targeting ALL businesses, ALL the time. Using automated software to look for weaknesses, and then exploit them.

If they can somehow persuade a member of your team to click a dodgy link… that can be enough to give them access.

Of course there are software solutions to protect you. But you also need a culture of cyber security in the business.

We’re 39D Services and we’re IT experts for Essex. And we’ve written a brand new guide, on how to create a culture of cyber security in your business.

5 terrifying password stats – that prove your business is at risk

You probably know that cyber crime is a massive threat to businesses everywhere.

You probably also know that poor password practice is a major contributing factor in data breaches and hacking attacks…

… if not THE major contributing factor.

If you’ve already got your password procedures sorted and you’re confident you’re doing everything possible to keep your business safe, that’s great.

But if you’re among the thousands of Essex business owners and managers who keep winging it, now’s the time to change.

Because it only takes Dave in accounts to keep using the password “YourLocalFootballTeam123” (i.e. ManCity123) to put your business at a shockingly high level of risk.

We’ve written a brand new guide called “5 terrifying password stats that prove your business is at risk”.

Windows 7 is dying. Here’s what to do about it

If your business still runs Windows 7, then you need to take urgent action.

You see, it reaches the end of its life in January. Along with a load of other popular Microsoft software. And once Microsoft no longer supports software, it becomes irresistible to hackers.

This is the 2020 problem. Half of all Essex businesses are affected. And the time to take action is NOW.

Don’t leave it till the end of the year… you don’t want to have to put in place an emergency fix. Better to plan a replacement programme now.
