IT Security Tip #12:
The DANGERS Of Dropbox And Other File Sync Apps

If you’re using Dropbox, OneDrive, Google Drive, or other consumer-grade file sync and sharing cloud applications, listen up! These applications pose a huge threat to your company because company data can be spread far and wide without central oversight of what information is being shared with whom. Further, over 7 MILLION Dropbox accounts have been hacked, giving cybercriminals a path into the company’s network.

This is even MORE important if your company has access to and/or stores financial, medical, or other sensitive data. Using file-sharing applications like these are a clear and direct violation of data breach and compliance laws. Bottom line, DON’T USE THEM FOR COMPANY DATA and use only company-approved, business-grade file-sharing applications.

Microsoft Tips for Windows

Ask Cortana To Schedule Events

Have Cortana add events to your calendar. Say, “Hey Cortana, set up a dentist appointment for May 1 at 3:00” or whatever you like.

Shortcut of the Week

Remove Formatting In Word From Any Pasted Text

When copying text from another document or Internet web page and pasting it into Microsoft Word, Word will keep the formatting of the text. To remove the formatting in Microsoft Word from any text, highlight the text and press the shortcut key Ctrl + Spacebar. The shortcut sets the text to the default font, removes the formatting, and even removes links.
