ransomware

1 in 3 SMEs in Singapore hit by ransomware

Are you prepared against RANSOMWARE?

I may have spoken to many of you, and also written articles to explain about Ransomware, but we still receive many emergency disaster recovery request. Especially those who did not adopt our SMESUITE solutions. Those on SMESUITE server, you can ignore this message as you are quite well protected. You have not got into any trouble, because we have got you protected all these while.

Refer to business times article dated 1st Aug 2017,

A third of Singapore SMEs hit by ransomware last year

Survey publish on The Business Time

This is a reminder to prepare yourself or your company to guard against ransomware attack.

Refer to my 2015 blog for more information. Old blog, but concept still valid.

For a quick summary, here is what I would suggest:

1. Educate everyone in the office not to open emails which are suspicious

2. Plan back-up strategy: main working copy > local backup > remote copy

3. Deploy proper file sharing devices (if you are not on SMESUITE), try to get NAS (we recommend QNAP as they do have strategy for protecting your data against Ransomware.

For more information on backup devices and strategy, please feel free to contact us at 65898878.

Hope this article helps you to be more prepared.
