“I am the one in ten!”

5.8 million Offences of cyber crime were made last year. That makes one in ten adults being affected.  In business we like to think we have all the antivirus software, policies and procedures and counter measures in place to mitigate the risk of cyber attack.  However, a couple of years ago we were hit by Ransomware. This is where all your data is encrypted and you have to pay a fee for it to be decrypted. You might think where was our backup? Well, it encrypted that as a well! Our business came to a standstill and we had no choice but to pay the fee and voila all the data became available. We learnt a very valuable lesson.  We now have off-line and off-network backups. We even have several backup disks that we physically unplug and take home!
