In our September SIMformation, we want everyone to be aware that Microsoft Windows 7, Windows Server 2008/2008R2 and Exchange Server 2010 all will reach their "End of Life" date in January, 2020.  Plus, Office 2010 will reach its end of life in October 2020.  This means Microsoft will no longer provide security updates and feature patches, leaving this software vulnerable to malware attacks. SIM2K urges everyone to have a migration plan in place and budget for software updates now as this year ends to be prepared for the January end of support date. We have more details in this issue.  We also discuss how cybercriminals are targeting education now days and what schools need to be aware of to protect student and faculty data.  We recap "Spoofing" and what you can do to identify phishing and other scam attacks.  And, we have a handy list of keyboard shortcuts for Microsoft Word users so you can get around hunting through various "Ribbons" to do simple formatting tweaks.
