The Latest Ransomware Attack Wasn’t the End – There’s More

Message Text:

<Recipient’s First Name>,

You may have heard about the massive international cyberattack, WannaCry, last week. Hold your breath… there’s more coming.

On May 12, 2017, hospitals, businesses, governments in over 150 countries woke up to the alarming news that their computer systems had been attacked by ransomware which demanded payment in order to get their files back. You can read the details on Wikipedia and on many news sites.

The attack exploited machines that used outdated Windows software or Windows systems that did not have the latest security patches. This means that new threats could be looming.

If your systems aren’t upgraded and patched, or if you don’t have business-grade reliable backups in place, you are at risk of being a victim of the next attack.

Our clients benefit from our expertise and responsiveness in software patch management, data backup and other strategies that keep them safe. Contact us for a network assessment to learn how “at risk” you are and for guidance on what you can do to make sure that you stay safe, too.
