  • So it's Monday morning you come in after an awesome week
  • 00:09
    boating and hiking and you log in your machine only to find it rebooted over the weekend.
  • 00:16
    What happened to all those files that you had open on Friday? Did
  • 00:20
    they save? Did they not save all those browser tabs that you had?
  • 00:25
    Well, Windows updated and now you have to figure out what you
  • 00:28
    were doing on Friday. My name is Koert Council, I'm a solutions
  • 00:32
    architect with Kosh Solutions and today I'm gonna be talking about
  • 00:36
    patching and updating. It's not exciting, but it's super
  • 00:39
    critical that it gets done. You do not want to be a point of
  • 00:43
    entry for a virus or ransomware to get into the network.
  • 00:47
    If your machine doesn't update, then that entry point could be
  • 00:51
    your machine. You could get compromised and the entire
  • 00:55
    network the entire business could be brought down because
  • 00:58
    you did not update your machine. Updating and patching is super
  • 01:03
    critical. The best way to do this is to just let it
  • 01:08
    happen automatically.
  • 01:10
    Sign out of your machine and leave it on. When you end, work
  • 01:14
    for the day every day, make it a habit. I'm going to say that
  • 01:18
    again. Sign out of your machine and leave your machine on by
  • 01:22
    signing out of your machine. It will force you to close your
  • 01:26
    files. Bookmark your tabs open in your browser and just
  • 01:31
    get it ready to make sure your machine updates and
  • 01:35
    reboots. You don't lose any saved information. Again, my
  • 01:38
    name is Koert Council, I'm with Kosh Solutions. Please reach out
  • 01:42
    if you have any questions on security or updates or
  • 01:45
    anything of the sort we are here to help. Thank you.
