A Place for Everything and Everything in its Place

This month’s Tech Tip comes to us from Jed Fearon, Solution Advisor at ProviDyn.

Whenever I drive by The Container Store, I am vividly reminded of my desire to have everything in its proper place. In these times of perpetual cyber warfare, this mindset (or slight case of OCD) is richly applicable to computer workstations and email accounts. Do you have any important items on your desktop instead of a secure corporate file share? Move them ASAP! Now you don’t have to worry about giving away the keys to the kingdom if your laptop or workstation happens to be stolen. Do you still have newsletters you signed up for during the Clinton administration filling up your inbox? Or ones you didn’t sign up for promoting the wonders of CBD oil? Unsubscribe, block sender, or mark as SPAM. Removing the clutter will help you focus on the most actionable messages and lower the likelihood that you unwittingly click on a dangerous link loaded with malware.
