How old is your oldest personal device? (Phone, tablet, PC or laptop, smart TV) Continuing to use outdated applications poses a significant threat to your cyber security, whether it’s been one year, five, or even ten. Act now to protect yourself!
If you don’t update your phone’s software, some apps may not work or update because they don’t work with the current operating system.
Here’s a good tech term to make you sound cyber security smart. Call old devices legacy devices.
It’s the same thing with other old devices. If you turned on your iPod from 2007, it will not be able to handle the latest iOS software; it won’t even download. Legacy devices aren’t incompatible; they’re a cyber security vulnerability!
Another good phrase that will make you sound smart about cyber security. Call cyber criminals or bad guys “threat actors.”
Using advanced penetration techniques, threat actors can exploit weak points in outdated systems that cannot handle the best (newest) cyber defenses.
Having cyber security software that is compatible with your current systems is crucial in today’s rapidly advancing technology landscape. It ensures that your online activities remain secure even as new devices are introduced into the market.
If you have a lot of old technology, it may not be feasible to upgrade all of it at once due to limited funds. We can collaborate with your IT team to pinpoint the devices that pose the greatest security risks and assist you in devising a plan to phase out your outdated equipment.
