IT Security Tip #18: Your Firewall is USELESS Unless…

A firewall is a device that acts like a security cop watching over your computer network to detect unauthorized access and activity – and EVERY business and individual needs one.

However, your firewall is completely useless if it’s not set up or maintained properly. Your firewall needs to be upgraded and patched on a continual and consistent basis, and security policies and configurations set. This is not something you want to try and handle on your own – you are best served by letting the pros (us!) handle that for you.

If you’re our client, we’ve got you covered. If not, call us at (608) 755-1524 for your FREE Business and Technology Assessment or visit computer-center.com/bta.

Word: Accept a Suggestion, Keep the Change

Letting everyone work with you on your document doesn’t mean you have to give up editorial control. When Track Changes is turned on, Word keeps track of what was changed, by whom, and when.

The changes are more like suggestions. Accept the changes you want to keep, reject the ones you don’t.

To turn on Track Changes, go to the Review tab and select Track Changes. Use the Accept or Reject commands on the Review tab to keep or get rid of changes.
