IT Security Tip: POP QUIZ! You are hacked, what do you do?....
Think fast: what’s the first thing you do after realizing you just replied to the e-mail from the Nigerian prince wanting to give you a sum of $34 million? Okay, you most likely didn’t reply to that…but let’s suppose you suddenly realize your machine or device has been compromised. Do you know what to do immediately?
First, physically disconnect the device from your company’s network (if appropriate) and the Internet by disconnecting the WiFi. Next, call US, your IT company, and report the incident. Even if you suspect something is going on, follow these steps. Do NOT ignore it, click it away or try to fix it yourself.
If you’re an employer, work with your IT company to create step-by-step instructions on what to do if employees believe they have witnessed a cyber-incident. Training needs to happen NOW, not when the problem is happening. Even the simple instructions above can save you from having a nasty virus spread throughout your organization and to your clients.

  • The COVID-19 test-to-stay program for kindergarten through 12th grade will end; no program will be possible for the 2022-2023 academic year;
  • The Community Antibody Administration Center program – which was mandated during the 2021 legislative special session – will cease;

  • The ability to support the commonwealth’s 90-day PPE emergency supply and necessary warehouse storage space is uncertain, as a pre-paid lease is set to expire and will require renewal beginning July 1, 2023; an alternative funding source has not yet been identified to sustain this program.
