Redrawing the Line between Work and Personal Time

This month our own Ryan has a story to share. After spending the last ten years in customer service--blurring the line between his personal life and his always-on-call work life--he has figured out a way to get some much-needed balance. 

You may have seen this headline (or a variation) over the past few days. Please don't panic though. 

Key takeaways:
- Hacked usernames and passwords for streaming service Disney+ have been found on the Dark Web.
- Disney reports there has been no security breach.
- Experts believe the most common culprits are 1. customers reusing passwords from other sites (that have been hacked) or 2. using common and easy-to-hack passwords such as "123456" or "princess."

This article should probably be renamed, "Disney+ Users Have a Hacking Problem." Protect yourself and your family with password best practices like these.

"123456" is by far the most common password in the world, with 23.2 million accounts using it, according to the UK's National Cyber Security Centre (NCSC) survey earlier this year.

💡 Tech Tip: 5 Things You Need to Do When You Get a New Phone 

'Tis the season...both for receiving new tech from friends and family as well as picking up an irresistible deal or two for yourself.

But before you jump right into the calling, texting, and downloading fun with your new phone (or tablet), follow these 5 steps to save time and hassle in the long run.
  1. Physically inspect all the components.
  2. Charge it for at least 8 hours.
  3. Start with the basic setup - yes updates, no data transfer just yet.
  4. Check functions such as camera, wifi, cable port, etc.
  5. Add security such as biometrics, multi-factor authentication, even possibly encryption.
