Friday Brief: The End is Near, Windows 7 End of Support

This year, Microsoft announced End of Support for Windows 7 will begin on January 14, 2020. As we approach the new year, organizations still running Windows 7 should – if you haven’t already – prepare to transition to Windows 10. What does End of Support mean, exactly? End of Support has occurred for previous versions of Windows over the years. Simply put, if your organization continues to use Windows 7 after January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide technical support, software updates, or security updates. This will *not* cause your machines still running Windows 7 to quit working; however, these machines *will* “become more vulnerable to security risks.
