Tips to protect your data

Posted on: May 19 2017

We would like to bring to your attention that there has been a global outbreak of a new Cryptographic Ransomware virus.

We would like to use this opportunity to remind you of the importance of your daily, weekly and monthly backups of GhostConvey.

We recommend that your GhostConvey SQL database is backed up at the end of every day and that your GhostConvey folder is backed up weekly and then monthly, and that the monthly one is kept for a three-month period.

We’ve also been advised that this virus can spread from a user’s computer to a cloud solution through a mapped drive.

In order to prevent this from occurring, we recommend you contact your IT provider to run the necessary securities file – it can be accessed from this link: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/security/ms17-010.aspx.
