Trends in Cybersecurity and Cyber Protection
Earlier this month, Peter and Shawn went to the Acronis Global Cyber Summit in Florida. They learned the latest trends in cyber protection and the improved ways to protect YOUR critical data assets and systems. Here are their key takeaways from the conference…
- Ransomware is a big threat that is only growing! It’s become EASY to be a ransomware hacker, and more bad actors are taking advantage of the automation ease of getting into the “business” of ransomware. So, it is even MORE important to protect your business and data because you ARE a target.
- Uneducated users continue to be the biggest threat and risk to a business. Social Engineering (or Hacking) tries to take advantage of human vulnerabilities. You NEED to educate your employees on the ways they can be taken advantage of.
- The tools and processes that protect you and your data have gotten better and easier to use – YOU JUST HAVE TO USE THEM.

Whose Responsibility Is Office 365 Backups?
Well, it’s not Microsoft’s – it’s a common misconception that Microsoft fully backs up your data. Microsoft ensures it won’t lose your data, they don’t make any guarantees about recovering it for you.
In the case of system obstacles and mishaps, like accidental deletion or internal/external security gaps, shouldn’t you take the proper steps to preserve your data?
Microsoft recommends third-party backup, and we offer Office 365 backups as well as other cloud data backups. Contact us today to make sure you’re protected and in control of your data.
