Published on 14th May 2017 by Owen Napier in Security

Many of you will have been following the news over the weekend of the massive ransomware attack which has affected the NHS and numerous other organisations in up to 100 countries since Friday. (Latest details from the BBC here)

We currently know of no Computeam client who has been affected by this outbreak. Nevertheless, our teams will be monitoring all of your servers and working hard to ensure that networks remain protected with up to date anti-virus and recent data backups.

However, even the best protection can be defeated, and for this reason we will be sending an email to all our schools as a reminder of the different ways of preventing your network from being infected by ransomware. We would also add the following notes relevant to this recent attack:

If you are at all concerned about this current outbreak or wish to discuss your current backup status please either contact your usual Account Manager or ring the helpdesk: 0845 052 1066 | support@computeam.co.uk
