Hi *|FNAME|*,

Hope you are all doing well.

I have been busy writing some eBooks. Check out my latest eBook, The ABC's of IT: An Essential Guide for Non-Techie Business Owners. Download it today for free to help you decipher your business technology.

It is getting closer to the end of the year so remember to upgrade your Windows 7 machines before January 2020. See our website here for more details on what this entails.

Security is the word of the moment with hackers breaking into businesses and home users on a regular basis. Everyone should look into implementing 2FA / MFA (2 Factor Authentication or Multi factor Authentication) on all their accounts as soon as they can. For businesses that hold confidential client information this is now the minimum security required for their accounts. Please contact us or read our blog article, Why Multi-Factor Authentication is Important, for more information.

One of our clients, Paul Atherton from That Wall Street Guy, is hosting a Workshop on Superannuation this month. It will be held on the 9th of October in McLaren Vale and further information is available here. If you have an event coming up that is targeted to business owners let me know and I can promote it in a future newsletter.

The SA Technology Collective regular "Social Drinks" is on Tuesday the 15th of October at the Woodcroft Tavern. Drop in anytime between 4PM and 6PM to have a chat with some other business owners in a casual environment.

I hope you enjoy the articles below and catch you all next month.
