Windows 11 introduces new features… and other small business tech news this week

Here are five things in technology that happened last week and how they affected your business. Did you miss them?

1 – Windows 11 introduces a new wave of features.

Microsoft is launching new features for Windows 11 as part of the company’s “continuous innovation” model. Features – which will be introduced through Release Preview – include a new nearby sharing option for devices, taskbar override, suggested actions, and a file explorer. The first feature will begin rolling out to Windows 11 users in October and to additional users in November. (source: ZDNet)

Why this is important to your business:

Did you know that Windows 11 has been out for a year now? For me – and for my business – there are no compelling reasons to force a promotion for my employees, even with these new features. Most of us use Windows 10 without problems, as long as Microsoft keeps the security versions up to date. But, surely like death and taxes, we’ll be in the world of Windows 11 eventually. However, I won’t worry about moving to Windows 11 until it’s time to replace the hardware. You won’t have a choice after that anyway.

Why this is important to your business:

There are many players in the document signing space but I like what Jotform offers for several reasons. For starters, it is quite affordable, given the features it offers compared to its competitors. I love the ease of use of Jotform. I love how simple it is to set up custom forms with automation and integration with existing applications. There’s a reason a lot of my clients already use Jotform to capture data from their websites: It’s a very easy-to-use platform suitable for many small businesses.

3 – A dismissed IT admin has paralyzed his previous employer’s network using outdated credentials.

The IT system administrator recently caused a major disruption to the operations of his former employer. The Hawaii-based financial firm terminated Casey K. Umetsu’s contract in 2019 after 3 years working there. Then Umetsu used the old credentials to access the settings on the company’s website and make changes that caused several days of disruption. He said he did so in an effort to persuade the company to rehire him for a higher salary. (source: sleeping computer)

Why this is important to your business:

Doesn’t this story make you wonder? It made me wonder. Who – in 2022 – fires an employee, no less an employee of the IT department – without taking the necessary steps to completely remove that employee’s access to systems? If you plan to terminate anyone, make sure you plan ahead and make sure the employee doesn’t have access to your data.
