Most small businesses do little to no public relations (PR) to promote their businesses. The reasons are fairly common. No one within the small business knows the mechanics of writing a press release, and if they did, they don’t know what to say. Instead, small business owners wait for a local reporter to stop by or for a trade publication editor to notice them at a trade show. Most small businesses are still waiting, but a select few luck into their moment of fame; and when it comes, Wow! what an impact it can have.
These two days are blessings because I can seek God’s kingdom first, see that quest in real physical measure before my own eyes, be joined by others on this same quest, and know that God will provide with all sufficiency on this day.

Never give out personal information to someone who calls you up on the telephone. If you call someone, like your credit card company for example, you may be required to give an account number to verify that you are in fact YOU. But if you receive a phone call from someone claiming to be from your credit card company and they want to “verify some information” and they start asking you for your account number and expiration date DO NOT give up the information. They are a con artist trying to scam you. Instead, call your credit card companies toll free number to talk to a representative and if there is any issue with your account that needs to be resolved they will help you.

One way in which it is a very good thing that Macs and PCs are incompatible is managed ransomware protection and security. Virtually every virus out there affects PC computers and not Macs. This is because Apple controls their devices closely, and maintain a central computer security department. PCs have no such advantage. However, both systems are equally vulnerable to the new varieties of social networking viruses.
It’s about this time that we begin to panic, wondering what we can do to fix our computers and knowing that this might be a more serious issue. We find another computer that has Internet access and begin to search for error code messages. We search for some people who have had the same computer problems. We may even call customer support. They will ask if you’ve installed protect from virus any new programs lately. They will suggest a system recovery. Unfortunately, you can’t always do a system recovery after you are having these many problems.
For all of the people who constantly procrastinate out there about getting a malicious software protection tool, please realize that the threats to your online security are constantly around. Think of these protective programs as the local law for your computer. They will quarantine, catch, and destroy things that you have no idea that are there. They never stop working and only need a bit of help from people. It is the people who think they won’t get infected and constantly goes onto dangerous sites that fall prey to these virtual predators.
A worm may search for security holes and manipulate them, moving from one to the other. Or, it may simply scan for useful information such as email addresses, which it may then use to spread itself into other networks.
