The Windows 7 operating system, from Microsoft is about to go unsupported.

What this means is that Microsoft will no longer develop and release updates for Windows 7, putting the users of this operating system at a security risk. There is an industry in the shadows filled with people who seek to exploit security flaws. The security flaws that work best for them are those for which patches are not released – like Windows 7 soon.

If you are running a computer with Windows 7, the best practice advice is that you upgrade your operating system as a matter of urgency. 

If you think your insurance will cover you for the costs of recovery, it may not if you have ignored advice to take reasonable steps to protect your business data.
