We recently discovered an issue with Outlook classifying legitimate Emails as junk. Valid emails from clients as well as emails from within our organization were being sent to our junk folder. Mail is classified as Junk in Exchange Online and within the Outlook client separately.

This post will serve to help resolve the ever so famous “Phantom Printer.” For those who are unfamiliar with the “Phantom Printer,” this is referred to when your printer is installed on your device and can be chosen from the drop down list of printer properties, but does not appear in the Devices & Printers location. It has no effect on the printing itself, and does not cause any issues besides the obvious visual of “Where is this printer device if not in the Devices & Printers location?”

Does your company have invaluable data across multifarious applications, but isn’t using it to its full potential?  What if you could capture metrics of that data within visualizations in one central location to ascertain your company’s performance?   As I pointed out in a previous blog, Microsoft’s Power BI offers an attractive feature for creating dashboards with interactive visualizations from multiple data sources.

Nothing makes doctors cringe more than someone blurting the acronym HIPPA.  What is HIPPA and why should I care, after all I am a doctor for heaven’s sake!  While that statement is often tossed around in casual conversations among peers, the underlying majority sentiment among the medical community is that it scares all healthcare principals to the bone.  The cost of a single HIPPA violation is astronomical and can literally put a small healthcare practice out of business.

So you’ve heard of Viruses and Phishing attacks, but have you heard of Ransomware? Ransomware is basically a combination of a virus and phishing attack that employs an application to encrypt your data to hold it for ransom. The phishing part of the attack is centered on an email with some type of attachment. An example would be “My Resume for your consideration” with a word document attached. The Word document has macros that will go out to the Internet, download and run an application that will search for and encrypt all of your data files (PDF, Office App files, photos, etc).
