Windows XP HealthcareMicrosoft has officially stopped delivering technical assistance or software updates for Windows XP.

They warn us: “These include security updates that can help protect your PC from harmful viruses, spyware, and other malicious software, which can steal your personal information.”

However despite the years of warning, nearly 20% of businesses still run XP.  Healthcare organizations are particularly vulnerable, because using Windows XP risks noncompliance with HIPAA. Ironically, the cost of upgrading to a newer operating system is much less expensive than the price of a HIPAA settlement.

Whether you run a healthcare organization or other type of business, if you’re using XP, it’s only a matter of time before you’ll be impacted by a virus, worm or malware.

Call On Time Tech at (415) 294-5250, or email us at info@ontimetech.com for more information, or assistance migrating from Windows XP.
