Don't Take the Bait
Within the last few months, there has been a 600% uptick in phishing attempts, which means people are still falling for these email scams. It’s up to you to stay safe and keep your data protected from bad actors. In this episode of the Geek Freaks Podcast Ron uncovers popular attacks with DropBox, OneDrive, and Michigan State University. He also shares more information on how to stay safe and alert.
Let's Talk About Our New Reality
While most of us want to return to ‘normal’ or how life was before COVID-19, that’s just not realistic for the world of business. We must move forward and adapt to our new reality. In this episode of the Geek Freaks Podcast, Ron opens up the floor to you all; Agency Owners, Principals, Producers, CSRs, and so on. Let’s talk about what worked and what didn’t with the transition from office to remote work. How will you improve and make changes for 2021, and all of those little stumbling blocks along the way.
Celebrating One Year of the Geek Freaks Podcast
It has been 1 year since the release of our very first episode, but 25+ years of Omega Computer Services. We have a great staff and are very fortunate to be where we are right now. Time sure flies by when you’re being geeky. In this episode of the GEEK FREAKS PODCAST Ron reminisces about the start of Omega and explains what sets us apart as a managed service provider for small and medium-sized businesses.
The Benefits of a Niche Insurance Agency
When most people look for a place to eat, they typically try to determine what the restaurant specializes in before deciding to dine in. Studies show that as society continues to move forward, individuals are looking for companies who specialize in what they are looking for, the insurance industry is no different. In this episode of the GEEK FREAKS PODCAST, we put Ryan Spalding, CEO of Worthy Insurance Group, on the Insurance Hot Seat to explain how beneficial it is to find a niche for your insurance agency.
Don't Get Reeled In: Understanding Phishing Emails
Phishing is a type of social engineering attack often used to steal user data, including login credentials and credit card numbers. It occurs when an attacker, masquerading as a trusted entity, dupes a victim into opening an email, instant message, or text message. It’s important to protect your sensitive information now more than ever. In this episode of the GEEK FREAKS PODCAST Ron explains how to spot phishing scams, how they work and why you should partner with someone who can help you stay on high alert for “phishy” activity.
Controlling Your Agency's Data
Data is one of the most important assets for any organization, yet most people don’t treat it as such. As most of us return to work after the shutdown from the COVID-19 pandemic, we are expecting a sprawl of data, as most people were working from home on personal devices. Now is the time to gain control of where your data is located and be fully prepared for the worst-case scenario. In this episode of the GEEK FREAKS PODCAST, our very own Ron Harris explains how properly backing up your data could potentially save your agency years’ worth of information.
