I wanted to take the opportunity to thank Intivix for many years of computer support and software management for my company and to spread the word for potential new customers. Being a small business means that you don’t always have the staff required to support all your company’s infrastructure needs. As a structured network cabling company, we had plenty of wiring engineers but not a lot of software maintenance and growth support. Intivix filled those positions for HC&C and their responsiveness to our needs allowed me to run my business and for the techs to do the work for our customers without software worries. In addition to providing services as our computer support vendor we often worked for the same customer providing a complete computer, software and network structure. Although we weren’t an official partnership, HC&C and Intivix worked together as if we were. Neither company could complete their job thoroughly and completely without the other providing a finished and problem free project. As we all know, projects rarely rollout as planned; so, it is the way a company works when there are problems that is the most telling. Intivix handled issues and changes effectively and efficiently.Julie Hardgrove, (former) President and CEO HC&C Communications, Inc.

Intivix provides IT support, Consulting, IT Security and Application Development to businesses in San Francisco and the Bay Area.
Hacked. The term just sounds bad. Like what a cat does with a hairball. Well, it is bad. But if you’re on top of things, not so bad.
Once again, I’ve taken a dive into a subject in which I’ve been a bit remiss. Oh, let’s get real. Very remiss. It’s similar to knowing there’s something wrong with your car, but you just turn up the stereo. Yes, I’ve been treading on thin ice.
How shall they hack thee? Let me count the ways.
Front door, back door, side door, and the infamous trap door of your Bank and Credit Card accounts, e-mail, Smartphones, computers, home network, tablets… (Whoa! I’m out of breath.) …Your SMS Messages, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram accounts, your dating and fitness apps, and even your Amazon Echo, Alexa and more. The list will never end.
What’s more, these hackers don’t even bother to knock. They have no shame and are pretty darn proud of their prowess.
The top four are: The darker the hat the shadier the hacker.
Black Hats. The bad guys. Really bad. Criminals.
White Hats. The good guys AKA Ethical Hacker.
Gray Hats. Half good, half bad. More hobbyists than anything.
Red Hats. The Vigilantes. There’s no judge and jury with this crew.
Yes, there are more hacker hats in the spectrum, but these four give you the idea.
What to do when you get hacked?
It’s not if. It’s when. So, we’ll keep this simple. And gentle.
I’ve provided a down and dirty “You’ve Been Hacked Cheat Sheet” It contains “THE CLUES” you’ve been hacked, the “WHAT TO DO’S” if in fact you have been hacked, and the “Aftermath NEVER DO’S” to avoid that pain again. It doesn’t go too deep, but you’ll have what you need to survive. If all else fails, the experts at Intivix can save the day.
THEN YOU’VE BEEN HACKED’ CHEAT SHEET
BANK HOLD-UPS! And your plastic.
CLUES – Uh-Ohs
Money is gone
WHAT TO DO’S – Do not wait another minute to:
View and confirm your identity online
Call your bank
Report the fraud
Freeze your account
Change your account username, pins, and passwords
Think about changing your email usernames and passwords
If your bank is not Black Hat-ready, find one that is.
The good news is that banks will refund money due to fraudulent transactions. But act fast, as their liability decreases over time. Be sure and read the fine print.
Still not satisfied? Check your financial institution’s website for everything you need to know about waking up to a hacked bank account. Or better yet, just call them. They’re more than eager to hold your hand.
