Hacking, by definition, is using a computer system to gain unauthorized access to a computer system or network. “Hacking is not necessarily bad.

And since computers and the internet are now a major part of our society, understanding hacking and protecting your information is more important than ever.
You might have seen that a dangerous new ransomware has been reported on over the weekend and I want to make sure you have all the information you need to make informed decisions about it. It has been reported that hackers are leveraging the recently leaked NSA hacking toolkit to infect and cripple systems all around the world.

On Friday, May 5th, Advantage Technology held its very first Cinco de Mayo Fiesta, complete with about 100 tacos! The fiesta began around noon when the catering company, Tastefully Dun, arrived to begin setting up the amazing Mexican cuisine. There were so many tacos that the caterers had to set up the spread in the hallway of the third floor!
