Keeping up with the latest trends and staying ahead of the curve in technology can be difficult. It seems like we are inundated with messages almost daily about the "latest" and the "greatest" new pieces of technology or updates available. Relying on old technology and outdated methods can limit your productivity, make staying organized difficult, and leave you missing out on new opportunities. Not being on par with the latest technology can affect your business in more ways than just feeling out of touch with the times.
Last week we shared some scary cyber security facts with you in preparation for Halloween and the close of National Cyber Security Awareness Month. We kept the theme rolling along last week for our segment of Tech Talk on The Big 550 KTRS. Our IT expert, Jeff Groby, joined the crew for the Guy Phillips Show to talk about some of the scarier things in cyber security that can affect all end users.
When we wrapped our last SumnerOne history lesson, we were just about to enter the new millennium. The growth SumnerOne experienced in the 1990's was the driving force behind all of the big changes that the 2000's and 2010's would hold for our company. It's safe to say that we didn't peak when the new millennium rolled around. We were just getting started.
The SumnerOne Solutions Team has been on top of their game, as always, but especially this month for National Cyber Security Awareness Month. Our IT expert, Chadd Haselhorst joined the Guy Phillips Show for Tech Talk to share some important information about how end users can protect their data.

As we wrap up National Cyber Security Awareness Month (NCSAM) we're also welcoming Halloween! This is the time of the year that the fictional monsters come out to play, but what about the monsters hiding behind a keyboard all year long? That's right, cyber criminals are the monsters who are out and about 365 days per year, disturbing the peace and unleashing chaos on end users. Here are our 7 scary facts about cyber security:
Last week on Tech Talk on The Big 550 KTRS our IT expert, Rion Kolosieke, joined the show to talk about having a disaster recovery plan and how to securely store your documents. Guy Phillips was in good humor and talking about technology jokes too. It's almost Halloween and keeping up with some of our St. Louis roots, we just wanted to leave you with a technology joke before we dive into our segment from last week. What do you call having your grandma on speed dial? Instagram! That's the last of the corny jokes, we promise. Data backup and disaster recovery, however, isn't something to joke about.
When most people hear the word data breach, large companies like Panera, Facebook, Uber, and Equifax come to mind. But, data breaches don’t only happen at large companies. Average end users have data breaches a lot more often since we often leave it up to software companies and app creators to keep us safe.

The easiest ways to secure your data is by enabling two-factor authentication, encryption, anti-virus precautions, and device wiping. In honor of National Cyber Security Awareness Month, here are our 4 tips on protecting your personal data, straight from our SumnerOne Solutions Team!
