Microsoft is discontinuing support for Windows 7. Here's what you need to know:
Back in January of 2015, many panicked about losing their Windows 7 support from Microsoft. Luckily, the powers that be extended that deadline to January 2020, but now that date is looming over us like a scary, HIPAA violation-filled cloud. Microsoft released a statement saying that “any users or businesses who are running [Windows 7] are more susceptible to cyber attacks.”
What does that mean for hospitals who haven’t upgraded to Windows 8 or 10 yet? Well, it means you need to tread lightly and carry a big security stick.
