  • 2. Microsoft Windows XP End of Life • As of April 8, 2014 Microsoft stopped providing support for its Windows XP operating system • Security updates and security patches are no longer available Windows XP supports almost one in three computers
  • 3. What This Mean For Security • No security updates means you don’t have the latest protections against viruses, spyware, and other malicious software • Anti-virus software will not be able to fully protect you • You are an easy target for hackers because they know what XP vulnerabilities aren’t fixed • Once you discover a vulnerability, you are on your own to try and fix it
  • 4. What This Mean For PCI Compliance • Using out-of-date software puts your business in a non-compliant status • You no longer have support to fix any problems that might come up, some of which may make you non- compliant
  • 5. Our Advice “In every case I always advise business owners to make sure that they have an up-to-date operating system, and have the latest available update or service pack installed.” -Brandon Barney, Security Support Director
