Spoofing emails are emails that look like they come from someone legitimate or from a well-known corporation. The most common spoofing emails is known as a whaling email, which is set up to be sent from a high-value target. Attackers will spend a lot of time on social media, discovering who is the CFO, CEO, or CIO of the company. An example of a spoofing email: Your CEO is requesting money or items be purchased through irregular channels. Luckily, there are ways to identify these and how to delete them.
1. Always check with the sender by phone call if you are unsure if they sent it. Take no action until you can verbally confirm that this is a legitimate email.
2. Look closely at the from address:
a. It may be spelled closely, but not exactly correct.
b. It may be from a domain that doesn't make sense the way it is spelled:
i. gogle.com instead of google.com.
3. The tasks in the email seem inconsistent with the personality or position held by the person it is said to be from.
Attackers are great at creating scenarios where the employee feels a sense of urgency or fear of consequences. Tools such as Microsoft 365 has advanced threat protection in place to help spot if a spoofing email has been sent to your inbox. Start protecting yourself and your business from spoofing emails by installing Microsoft 365. Want to learn more about how Microsoft 365 can benefit your business?

Transition to Cloud Dynamics GP
Dynamics GP is a mature and robust ERP solution. However, over time, many clients have grown tired of maintaining servers, performing upgrades, etc. These clients are content on the system and have no reason to find another ERP platform. These clients will often transition their existing Dynamics GP environment to the cloud. WebSan is currently the largest cloud Dynamics GP partner in the country, providing hosting services for many organizations, large and small. We have a standard migration process to seamlessly transition your Dynamics GP environment to the cloud.
In the cloud, customers benefit from complimentary upgrades and backups. Security is also administered on a complimentary basis. Further, our full suite of services allows users to expand into areas of automation such as EDI or other integrations, opening up many possibilities that do not exist today. Further, upgraded environments allow customers to take advantage of Power BI & workflows capabilities that Microsoft has recently deployed.
This is a feature that allows you to connect your Dynamics GP on-premise data to the cloud through Dynamics 365 Business Central. This option is great for those clients that want to leverage cloud technologies while maintaining their software in on-premise. This has been a focus on Microsoft over the past year as users start to leverage the Power Platform. The Intelligent Edge allows customers to bridge between their current system and Dynamics 365 Business Central by bringing data into D365. Data is synchronized in the Intelligent Cloud on Azure. Data can then be used with all of D365’s built-in capabilities such as AI, Machine Learning, data storage through the Common Data Service, and the Power Platform (Power Apps, Flow, Power BI).
This is great for those looking to leverage cloud solutions but not ready to transition their Dynamics GP environment.

Project Types in Microsoft Dynamics GP
The Project Accounting module in Dynamics GP is a very robust application enabling users to monitor the financial results of a project. One of the best features with this module is that it ties in with all the other modules within Dynamics GP. Therefore, if an invoice needs to be posted it can be done in the same system. For a company to use the Project Accounting module correctly it must first understand its current project structure and what is required in terms of KPI’s and reporting. Once this has been decided the company will have to choose the project type to use for this project. There are three types of projects in Dynamics GP:
Cost Plus – Customer pays for the actual project cost plus an added margin percentage
Fixed Price – Customer pays a fixed fee for the project
Time and Materials – Customer is billed for all costs that are incurred on a project
Watch this FREE 5-minute video reviewing the three different project types in much more depth.
That was a detailed breakdown of the different kinds of projects that are available inside Dynamics GP. The projecting accounting module offers a lot of features that would require some training to learn everything. WebSan University offers a 7-part series for Project Accounting in Dynamics GP. This can be completed at your own pace, there’s no need to spend thousands of dollars hiring consultants. The courses are available online and are done in an instructional video format. Each video is only an hour long and provides a deep dive into how to navigate the system.
