MIP Database Modifications 
Maintaining database accuracy is a crucial part of keeping your nonprofit running smoothly.

When an organization needs to add a segment to their Chart of Accounts, change their fiscal year-end or consolidate databases, they will also need to change their record keeping procedures to keep their organization running smoothly.

Luckily database modifications can be made to MIP to retroactively apply changes or meet future requirements.

Beware of Windows 10 Upgrade Scam
If you are a Windows 7 or 8 user, Microsoft will not send you an email to upgrade to Windows 10.  These emails are fraudulent.  

Just days after Microsoft released its latest operating system, hackers have begun targeting potential upgraders by sending them Windows 10 Upgrade emails.  The emails contain a new kind of malware called "ransomware".  Ransomware encrypts files and blocks access to your computer system until a sum of money is paid.  Ransomware attacks have been on the rise and are making headlines with the recent Windows 10 scams.

To protect yourself and your organization from Windows 10 Upgrade scams, don't open any attachments you weren't expecting and be wary of download links in email messages from unknown sources or those claiming to be Microsoft (Microsoft is not distributing Windows 10 via unsolicited emails).
