1 minute read time

If you or your business have computers running Windows 7, Microsoft® will no longer provide software or security updates starting January 14, 2020.

So what does end of life for Windows 7 mean for you or your business?

On January 14th, Windows 7 will operate just as it does now and the digital solutions we offer can still be accessed. However, your computer and the personal and financial information stored on it, can become vulnerable to security threats that may include data loss or theft, viruses, malware infections or ransomware.
