Running Office 2003 or Windows XP after the end-of-support date may expose your company to security risks and technology limitations, including: • Security Risk: No new security updates can leave unsupported and unpatched environments vulnerable to security risks. • Compliance Risk: End- of- support may result in an officially recognised control failure by an internal or external audit body. Non-compliance can lead to a suspension of certifications and/or public notification of the organisation’s inability to maintain its systems and customer information. • Lack of On-going Updates: There will be no more non-security hot fixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates—limitations which could negatively impact your productivity and growth
WHAT DO I NEED TO DO?
Consider upgrading now to the new Office and Windows 8 right away, before the end-of-support for Office 2003 and Windows XP.
