      How secure is your computer and internal network? Could it survive malware or a virus? For most of us, our system just runs and is out of sight, out of mind…until something happens. I’m with Tom Sciortino, a good friend and local shop owner in my hometown, and his business computer got hacked. Tom’s personal accounts were also hacked.  He bought a couple of laptops he didn’t know about. Don’t let this happen to you; keep listening to find out how he discovered the hack and the changes he made to protect his network. 
      Tom Sciortino, Total Automotive, Buffalo, NY. Tom's previous episodes HERE
      Key Talking Points
      One of his 6 terminals was hacked in the shop. Hacker also had access to his home computer and Amazon account. Police traced recent order for 2 laptops to a home in Rochester, NY, about 80 miles away. Retrieved the laptops but couldn’t prove it was purchased by a hacker, no case can be created.  Passwords had to be locked down, and lock computer system with password protection. Google activity is monitored weekly Have a system in place for checks and balances- when Tom first started his business he had an employee skim cash from check deposits and steal 8K in 5 weeks.    Advice- have a good relationship with your IT and bankers. Evaluate your credit card chargeback policies and fraud alerts

      Now that I am not a shop owner, I had to make an appointment to have the A/C checked on my wife's car. While the vehicle was being serviced, the tech noticed a bubble on the tire. I told the service advisor to get me a good set of Michelins.  He said that might be hard since he had trouble getting some sizes and models.  My wife drives a Mercedes E350. 
      Are you seeing tire-related shortages too?

      Yesterday, around mid-day, I headed out to run a number of errands. I first stopped for a quick lunch, then on to the hardware store, the beer distributor (for Father's Day BBQ), the grocery store, and then I went to Staples to pick up a few shipping cardboard boxes.
      EVERY place I went to had a sign out in front: NOW HIRING! 
      I don't get it, where are all the workers?  The unemployment rate is at 3.6%. Does that really reflect the number of people out of work, or is the number higher when we factor in those that don't want to enter the workforce or those that have left the workforce? 
      Something doesn't add up.

      With run-away inflation and the never-ending increase in gas pricing, auto repair shops in the Northeast are cautious.  While 2022 so far has been very good for most, the fear is that the forces that eat away at the consumer's discretionary spending will also affect their ability to pay for recommended services and repairs. 
      How are you dealing with this? What strategies could we share?

      A recent survey from The Muse found that 72% of people that left their jobs are not happy, and nearly 50% would consider getting their old job back.  So the question is, would you rehire someone who left you recently, and is now not happy?
