      How Do You Feel About ISPs Selling Your Internet Browsing History?

      The huge levels of dissent surrounding this issue boil down to concerns over privacy. While the proposed rules didn’t necessarily prevent ISPs from selling your data for monetary gain, they would have required the ISP to secure permissions from you before they did so. The relationship between ISPs, the Federal Communications Commission (the FCC), and the Federal Trade Commission (the FTC) also played a major role. Many politicians who were opposed to these new rules felt that the FCC had no business determining rules for ISPs, as they felt that responsibility for that was better managed by the FTC.

      This opinion was shared by the current chairman of the FCC, Ajit Pai. However, while the FCC no longer has the authority to forbid ISPs from selling their user’s browsing data to advertisers, no power has been given to the FTC to prevent such activity, either.

      The government’s actions have provided ISPs with the same abilities as search engines and social media sites, with a few changes. First of all, search engines and social media do not require any sort of purchase, which leads to an implied agreement that in exchange for their free services, they may use your browsing data to personalize the results they show you (although this personalization does allow marketers to target specific demographics of users, which is a very powerful tool for businesses that many users feel is invasive). ISPs, on the other hand, do charge for their services, meaning that this ruling effectively allows ISPs from making twice the profit from you. Furthermore, instead of just tracking your history on select sites and services, an ISP has access to analyze your entire surfing history and profit off of it.

      So what does this all mean to you?
      Well, that depends. It is possible that ISPs will target online advertisements based on your individual browsing history, emphasizing products and services that you have shown some interest in before. This isn’t new. Amazon, for example, has mastered this through the use of remarketing. While this could presumably lead to an improved browsing experience for many, there is considerable pushback coming from many advocates for privacy.

      This is largely due to the fact that your ISP could harvest this data from almost anywhere, including your personal email accounts and any other online activity, in order to sell it, or at least allow marketers to capitalize on it. Depending on the data collected, this could potentially include personally identifiable information or sensitive account credentials--which could then be up for sale to whomever wanted to buy them from the ISP. Even if we weren’t worried about ISPs selling this type of sensitive data, it opens up another potential way for hackers to gather that data, if the ISP is lax on security.

      This isn’t the only advantage the ISP gains, either. Under the rules that were scrapped, an ISP would have been required to alert their customers of a data breach. Arguing that this would only lead to ‘notification fatigue,’ the ISPs were also able to remove these rules, meaning that they are no longer obligated to inform you should your data be at risk.

      So, how can you prevent your sensitive information from being collected?
      Unfortunately, that may be easier said than done. While ISPs still have free reign to collect your browsing data as they please, they are not able to do so if you opt out. This is not to say that all ISPs have made opting out easy, so you may have to make a phone call, and you have to take them at their word that they are no longer tracking you.

      There are also some ISPs who are opposed to the privacy repeal, but around 80 percent of Americans have only one or two options for broadband in their area.

      Utilizing a virtual private network is another option available to you, but this approach isn’t without its drawbacks, either. Just as an ISP can, a third-party VPN can access and sell your browsing data, if they so choose. For a personal user, a VPN can be costly and cumbersome, however businesses do benefit from them every day. Tor browsing is another option, although it is more complicated, slower, and can potentially be unsecure.

      In short, there really isn’t an easy, guaranteed way to secure your browsing history against the peeping eyes of your ISP. All you can do is implement some of these methods to defend yourself to the best of your ability.

      The Top 3 Ways Cloud Computing Helps Businesses

      Cost Efficiency
      Let’s face it, when you’re running a business, cost is a factor in every decision you have to make. Leveraging the cloud for any of a variety of purposes can help you to trim some expenses and make some others stretch a little further. A cloud setup provides the ability to scale your resources to match your needs, ensuring that you aren’t paying for more than you need. This simplifies your budget, and may help free up some capital to invest in other business needs.

      Multiple Purposes
      While the cloud is most famously associated with storage, it has the capability to serve your business in other ways as well. For instance, the cloud can host your software solutions for you as a part of a Software as a Service agreement. In these cases, any time there are improvements made and a new version is available, your solutions will be upgraded immediately.

      Alternatively, the cloud can be used to facilitate a backup and disaster recovery strategy. By housing a backup of your data in an offsite cloud environment, it will be safe should some calamity damage your in-house infrastructure. In these cases, you can even virtualize your systems and run them directly from the cloud to preserve productivity while the office is repaired.

      Finally, we return to storage, as it relates to the collaborative benefits to be had with the cloud. By storing business files and data in the cloud, you and your employees can share access and work together to achieve your shared company goals--whether or not you’re anywhere near each other.

      Security
      Your data is undeniably precious to your business, and as a result, it must be protected from threats from all sides, both external cyber crime and internal user error. Using the cloud permits you to keep your most sensitive data accessible on a need-to-know basis, and allows you to wipe a device in the hands of someone who doesn’t need to know, if need be.

      If you want to use the cloud to accomplish these things, reach out to LSeven Solutions at (877) 4-LSeven.

      Tip of the Week: Here’s an Easy Way to Update Your Hardware Drivers in Windows 10

      In this week’s tip, we’ll go over how to install drivers and why they are important for getting the most out of your investment.

      First of all, drivers are meant to help your device perform better. Windows will usually try to install them the first time you plug in a new piece of equipment. They will frequently need to be updated depending on how often they are patched by the developer. Without these drivers, you run the risk of encountering hardware crashes and decreased performance. All of these issues can be avoided if you make sure that your drivers are always kept up to date.

      To get started with managing your hardware drivers in Windows 10, open the Windows 10 Device Manager. To do this, right-click on the Start menu or press the Windows Key + X.

      Once you’ve opened the Device Manager, you’ll can see all of the details about the various drivers you’ve installed for your hardware solutions. Just use the categorized list to look for your device. Double-click the device and you’ll be shown the version of the driver, as well as how recent the driver was issued.

      If the drivers need to be updated, click on Update Driver. If the Search automatically for updated driver software box is checked, Windows will search for the new version. The new driver will automatically install if it’s available.

      Keep in mind, some drivers can be updated by Windows automatically, and other devices have their own tools and utilities to update drivers and patch software. Some developers will provide direct download links to drivers on their websites, so if Windows can’t find what you need, it’s worthwhile to check with the manufacturer.

      One more thing to consider--a new version of a driver may cause an issue or incompatibility with something else running on your computer. While it’s important to stay up-to-date, you may want a professional to handle your updates. When we manage computers for businesses, we handle software updates, security patches, and hardware driver updates to make sure your technology is running as smooth as possible.

      If your business has questions on how to handle drivers, reach out to us at (877) 4-LSeven.
