What Does This Mean?
This means that as of January 14th, 2020 Microsoft is no longer going to actively provide security fixes when they are discovered and this may open you up to any number of attacks, including identity theft, ransomware, botnets, or other security and privacy issues. Additionally, If you are part of an organization where HIPAA or other compliance laws apply, a computer no longer capable of receiving security updates would not be seen as a compliant way to access or handle sensitive data.

Will My Computer Stop Working?
No, your computer will not simply cease to function, but it will no longer be considered a safe platform to browse the web, use online banking, or other common tasks. Additionally, many websites such as banks, social media sites, and work-related portals may no longer allow you to log on using Windows 7 as the web browsers available on it are also no longer being updated for safe and secure use..

Do I Need a New Computer?
Maybe. If your machine was ordered within the last 3 years specifically with Windows 7 or Server 2008 on it, then you can likely do an upgrade and have similar or better performance. If it is older than that, we can review on a case-by-case basis to see if it makes more sense to upgrade internal components to make the most of the new OS, or if a new machine may be the most cost-effective path to the new platform.

How Do I Stay Protected and Compliant?
Simply send an email to qr[at]bmkmedia.com with your name, site or property name, phone number, and request a complimentary review of your existing Windows 7 or Server 2008 machines. We will get back to you ASAP with recommendations or to schedule a full review and build a proposal for upgrades.
