For Cyber Security

Filter Out Malicious Emails

Before They Reach Your Inbox

Cyber Security for your email is a critical defense against crooks and ransomware. Per recent studies, over 80% of Cyber attacks start with email.

 

Even with the best technology defenses on your network, you are at risk. If a human clicks on a malicious email, the cyber crooks can steal or ‘lock up’ your data to hold you ransom. Standard Anti-virus software will only catch a small fraction of malicious emails that target users.

 

To add an important layer of protection, we recommend that our clients deploy email filtering software.

For Cyber Security, filter out malicious emails before they reach your inbox.

Best practices to backup QuickBooks Safe

 

Best Practices For

QuickBooks Backup

For most businesses, we recommend that your IT staff or consultant configure automatic backups of your entire system. However, backing up QuickBooks files using server backup software is not enough.

 

Beyond the network-level backups, we recommend that companies also perform frequent backups from within QuickBooks, using the QuickBooks menu. 

 

The reason we make this recommendation is becuase the QuickBooks backup function also performs file maintenance.  This file maintenance helps protect the integrity of your data files.

How To Use Memorized Transactions In QuickBooks
 

Do you have many recurring transactions such as bills (payables), invoices, purchase orders?

 

If so, QuickBooks can save you time and errors with a feature called Memorized Transactions.

 

For example, you might make a rent payment every month. With QuickBooks memorized transactions, you could add that transaction to a Reminders List. QuickBooks will prompt you every time the transaction comes due. Even if the dollar amount changes with each occurence, QuickBooks can remember all of the other data fields, to save you time.

 

Our QuickBooks newsletter provides details on how to use Memorized Transactions. http://conta.cc/2nEhoOw
