ACCS Information Note

Information regarding computers in your school which are operating on Windows 7

Following information received from the ACCS ICT Sub-Committee and Microsoft please note that after January 14, 2020, Microsoft will no longer provide security updates and support for PCs with Windows 7. If you continue to use Windows 7 after support has ended, your PC will still work, but it may become more vulnerable to security risks.

Your best option now is to upgrade your Windows 7 machines to Windows 10 as Win10 will be continuously updated to protect against attack. If your school has an active OVS ES Agreement or has purchased perpetual Windows licenses in the past 4 years, you may well be licensed to perform those upgrades today at no extra cost.

If however your school has machines that need to continue to use Windows 7 after January 14th, you will be able to purchase ‘Extended Support’ for these machines (ESU) which will mean continued Support for up to 3 years.

For more on the End-of-Support timelines, please click here; for more on the ESU option, please click here

Choosing between these two options is crucial because choosing not to act at all will mean exposing your school to targeted attacks in early 2020. Please reach out today to discuss options for your school.
