Why you need a password manager

Have you ever stopped to think about how many online accounts you have?  15, 20, 100?  It seems that websites whether they are for online shopping, news, real estate, banking, or social media need an account for you to participate. I started counting the number of accounts that my wife and I share. We are approaching 25 accounts just in our shared digital notebook.  Of course, with each new account you need to pick a username and a password. How often do you choose a new strong password versus using that old go-to password? It turns out that despite our best intentions to think of a new password research shows that most Americans tend to reuse the same password for online accounts.  Over time our online presence continues to grow and so do the number of accounts that we have, so how should we handle them? Today, many people still use their mind, old-fashioned pen and paper, browser saved passwords, a password file on their smart device, or password managers.  If you are still okay with using browsers, your mind, or your pen and paper consider how secure the online world has been and will continue to be. Both Target and Yahoo had separate data breaches in 2013. Yahoo’s data breach affected every single one of their accounts (3.3 billion in 2017). This year Facebook had 87 million users affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal, did you change your passwords? As technology changes, so do hackers and their abilities to crack passwords, perpetrate cyber-attacks, and use your account data for their benefit.  I’m not trying to sell you a... read more

It’s Time to Buy a New Laptop

  Click…pause…wait…click…click click click click CLICK!  Sound familiar?  For a small businesses, PCs and laptops are some of their most important tools.  If your tools aren’t functioning correctly it can lead to lost productivity.  A typical laptop should last three to five years before it needs to be replaced.  This is dependent on the quality of laptop that was originally purchased, what it gets used for, and how it is cared for.  Once you are outside of that three to five-year time span, repairs and upgrades are likely to cost as much or more than the laptop is worth. Even if your laptop was top of the line when you purchased it, you have taken good care of it, and it seems to be running well it may still need to be replaced.  The software company that created and maintains the programs that you use will release regular feature updates and bug fixes.  While the software will be backwards compatible with hardware to a point, eventually you will find it is not running well on your older laptop. When looking at purchasing a new laptop, it is best to stick with the known brands like HP, Dell, and Lenovo.  They are more likely to be of higher quality than a no name brand.  Also, local IT professionals such as ReadiTech, will be able to service them.  Look for a laptop with a warranty of at least one year and consider extending that to two or three years.  This will cost more up front but may save you in cost of repairs and downtime over the life of the computer.... read more

STEM Education and why it’s important to ReadiTech

What is the next big thing in education? Could it possibly be STEM education? I think so. STEM is a program that blends four subjects – Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics – into a seamless program that helps prepare students to be competitive in a growing, global workforce. DRN ReadiTech is dedicated to bringing excitement and increased knowledge to area students in the areas of STEM. This is one of the main reasons we started our tech camp in 2017. Our team of technology experts enjoy sharing the opportunities there are to work in a STEM career, specifically technology, even in rural areas. According to the U.S. Department of Education, only 16 percent of high school students are interested in a STEM career and have demonstrated a proficiency in mathematics. DRN ReadiTech would like to keep students interested in STEM careers by exposing them to the all the different ones available. As the demand for the next technology development continues to grow so will jobs in STEM. Data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that employment in occupations related to STEM is projected to grow to more than 9 million between 2012 and 2022. In 2015, there were nearly 8.6 million STEM jobs in the United States, and that number is growing every year. In fact, STEM job growth in the past 10 years is three times that of any other field, but by 2018 it is projected that 2.4 million STEM jobs will go unfilled. These statistics show that it is important that we keep students interested in STEM careers. Is a STEM career right for... read more
