Before you know it, September will be here and the new fiscal year will have started.  The beginning of a new fiscal year is always a good time to review your contact information to ensure it is up to date with your latest information for purposes of emergency notifications such as inclement weather office closures and emergency situations. 

Ransomware is a special type of malware that is actively spreading across the Internet today, threatening to destroy user’s documents and other files. Malware is software – a computer program – used to perform malicious actions.

Once ransomware infects your computer, it encrypts certain files or your entire hard drive.
