To keep your computer and your information safe, it is crucial to keep your Operating System, Apps, and Web Browser updated. The recent WannaCry Ransomware attack is a perfect example of how hackers use vulnerabilities in old systems to their advantage.
In addition, updates often help your computer run more smoothly. Many updates to apps and software are bug fixes, and some may include useful new features.
Updating your computer, especially in the middle of your work day, can be inconvenient. Although it's best to run updates as soon as possible, running updates at the end of the work day is better than never running them at all! Write yourself a note, or use a program on your computer to remind you to run those updates before you leave for the day.
