    Stay Organised and Focused 

    Who remembers the days of the filing cabinet? You know that thing sitting in the corner and every so often you'd open it up and clean through it and you'd go wow, okay, there's a lot of stuff in here. You clean through it and you got it all thrown out, you got all the stuff that you needed from the last seven years for the tax man, you digitised it all, and you chucked it on the computer, but that could be just as big of a problem as what you did in your filing cabinet.

  • Here's How an IT Audit Helps
    IT personnel who does not know what to do

    Aussies are usually careful when it comes to technology. Despite this, people can always make easy mistakes if they aren’t careful. If you want to improve your IT system, we’ve enumerated some common technology mistakes that you can easily avoid. They are either software or hardware-based, or a mismatch of both. The common reasons for these problems include cost-cutting and inadequate planning. Foregoing purchase and delaying implementation are very costly that they exceed costs of due diligence. Most of the time, clients come running when the fire has burnt half of the building when in fact it only started with a spark on a small fuse.

  • The Best Accounting Software 

    Numbers, general ledgers, chart of accounts, reconciliation, linking bank accounts from one thing to another and then sending out your BAS. It's something that unless you're a number freak and a super geek and really, really enjoy the accounting lifestyle, you're not going to enjoy that part about your business.

  • How to Completely Wipe Data From Old Computers

    Every so often you need to refresh your hardware, everyone knows that. What should you do with your old gear? Some people throw it away in the bin, some people give it to their niece or nephew or something like that. What I'm going to stress for you to do is make sure you do none of that.

  • How to Make a Strong Password and Remember It

    I've just told everyone your password. Yup. They are the most common passwords that people have.

  • How to Prepare for Windows 7 End of Lifewindows 7 startup screen

    There's a very important date to keep in mind if you're running Windows 7 desktops. We're already in the extended grace period, and now we're going to be no longer having that as an option next year. So, get onto Windows 10 systems. If you do want to continue using a Windows 7 system for your business, continue reading. 

  • How to Smarten Up Your Home?

    Bricks and bloody mortar, mate. Do you have a smart home? We use the term standard home versus smartphone because dumb home sounds odd. Nevertheless, if you've got a standard home and you're a business owner you are missing out on a whole bunch of efficiencies.

  • How to Create Network Documentation?

  • What Is Patching?

    So, you're in the cloud. You've got all this awesome infrastructure and you want to make sure that your transactions through the cloud to wherever the data is stored is secure.

This usually includes fixing security vulnerabilities and other bugs and improving usability or performance.

  • How to Choose the Right Server?physical server managed by a dedicated IT guy

    In today's technology-intensive environment, no business can think of having a network or IT-related infrastructure without installing a server. However, deciding between physical and virtual servers isn't a simple choice due to the complex requirements of businesses and the factors associated with each option. Find out whether a virtual or physical server will be the right choice for you. Let's discuss the pros and cons of both physical and virtual servers, which hopefully towards the end can help you make the daunting task of choosing the best one easier for you.

  • IT professionals checking the serversWould it be better to ditch your IT support team for another?

    Here in Australia, we are a loyal bunch. Loyalty can be great, however, it doesn’t always lead to what is best for your business. Just about every aspect of business today revolves around information technology. The smallest of businesses can’t dismiss the importance of having a proper information technology system, from phone line to network security. Fortunately, outsourcing IT support is possible and easier than ever.

  • Office 365 Does Not Backup Your Data So You Should

    You might have Microsoft Office 365, and that's awesome. However, Office 365 doesn't have any backups. That's right! Think about that for a moment. They have infrastructure backup and uptime guarantees so that you know that the systems are reliable, but if you go and delete something, you won't necessarily have any backup in those infrastructures.

  • domain name quick overview

    What Is a Domain Name and How Does It Work?

     

    Today we're going to talk about domain names. We had a lot of questions come through last week about hosting and domain names and all sorts of stuff. People are like, "What's a host? What's a domain name? What's all this stuff?" So, the easiest way to think about it is when you're running a business, you have to have your business name registered. Then you can actually run your business.

  • Patching as a ServiceWhy Patching Your Hardware and Software Is So Important

    You're in the cloud. You've got all this awesome infrastructure and you want to make sure that your transactions through the cloud to wherever the data is stored is secure. One of the main things you need to do is make sure you have patching as a service. Before we discuss patching as a service, what exactly is patching?

    Is Your Defence Strong Enough?elements of computer security

    In Australia, we can be rather relaxed. The “she’ll be right” attitude is all well and good until something goes wrong and you are up you know what creek without a paddle. The importance of having a strategic and holistic approach to cybersecurity solution is more important than ever. There’s no single solution to fighting and eliminating cybersecurity risks. The challenges they present are multi-faceted, so information cybersecurity systems need to be multi-dimensional. One approach that works is having an external information system audit on top of internal monitoring.

    Why Your Business Should Invest in VOIP 

    Today we're going to be talking about phone networks, and what way to go for your business. You have these things with phone networks traditionally, that would come into the building, called a trunk, and that would delegate how many numbers that you could have for your business. Now, traditionally, if you want to expand the number of lines, you'd need to call out Telstra, and you'd need to have them come out, and physically enable additional copper lines that are coming into your building.

  • Your Internet Service Provider Is Spying on You

    This is a big one. ISPs in Australia are watching you. You're being watched, all of your motions. It's not one of these conspiracy theories. It's a real thing now and it's happening and all the laws and legislation were passed ages ago. People don't talk about it. People don't know about it for some reason. People don't read papers. I don't read papers. People don't read online news aggregates for some reason.
