Microsoft has announced that they are ending support of Office 2003 and Windows XP on April 8th, 2014. After that, there will be no new security updates, non-security hotfixes, free or paid assisted support options, or online technical content updates.  This, according to Microsoft, exposes Office 2003 users to greater security and compliance risks.

ITD reminds agencies that supported versions are required to stay secure and remain compliant with state standards.
