FileMaker hosting is safe, secure & easy to convert

Ensure your data is secure at all costs! In the digital age, your data is the currency for those searching for an easy payday. Valuable personal information is traced and tracked by not only marketers but also for individuals looking to steal your data for the purposes of defrauding you or your company. Not until you have been at the receiving end of a malicious attack by ransomware, does a person come to understand just how imperative it is to keep your data secure.

Ransomware is a cybercrime whereby data is held for ransom after being accessed via computers and mobile devices which are then locked and held hostage until the victim pays the required ransom. As an individual or organisation, you are an easy target to common types of attacks such as phishing. Phishing (pronounced fishing) is when an email is sent to an unsuspecting recipient, urgently requiring them to download a link or click on an attachment, under the guise of being a highly important piece of information for the recipient. Unsuspecting recipients may click without realizing that they are about to unleash a silent threat into their computers and any network that they happen to be a part of. Phishing can be perpetuated in that the ransomware can be forwarded without the knowledge of the original recipient and before you know it, your entire social and professional community has received a similar link, rendering them vulnerable to the same threat that you have just unknowingly fallen victim to.

The point of ransomware is to access the personal or professional information that is stored on all devices and networks and to lock users out of their own information until a ransom is paid. This type of cyber attack can cost a company an enormous amount of money, not only as a result of the ransom but also as a result of downtime or lack of production. The knock-on effect can be catastrophic. Ransom often presents in the form of Bitcoin (cryptocurrency) which is impossible to trace. As with normal hostage situations, once the ransom has been paid, the victim may receive a code or file which will decrypt the attack and release the data.

If you do not already have a plan to prevent a cyberattack on your business, then you may be the next victim of cyber engineering executed by online criminals.

One of the ways in which you can avoid being the victim is to engage with Knowall IT support west London cloud computing solutions for your organisation. Cloud computing means that you will enjoy the convenience of high-tech hardware as well as have access to software at merely a portion of the cost of purchasing all of this yourself. Highly secured servers are yours to store your data without the headache of expensive upgrades for hardware and software.

Cloud computing is the way of the future and your company can be part of a shared social community that utilise shared-services from as many locations as required to effectively ensure the smooth running of your business. Ever-innovative Knowall IT offers an alternative approach with FileMaker Hosting which converts any FileMaker software already in use, safely and securely, to the cloud. Be it from abroad or from many local locations, your access is guaranteed with 24/7 connectivity utilizing your existing FileMaker license and the same look and feel you already enjoy.

Phishing tips for employees

This weeks post is a continuation of last weeks Phishing tips and tricks.

Did you know Phishing currently accounts for 90% of data breaches with 30% of Phishing emails being opened? Most of the time these phishing scams can be prevented with a bit of simple know-how.

It’s important that you remain alert, vigilant and secure at all times. To prevent personal and business data loss.

Below are a few hand tips from our weekly phishing blog.

Tip 4 – Phishing links can be hidden in attachments

Not all phishing emails may contain a link within the copy of the email. Scammers can also embed links within attachments to avoid detection by email spam filters. E.g. PDF or Word doc.

If an email does not come from a source you know. Don’t open up any attachments. Speak to your IT team before hand.

Tip 5 – Real logos and brands

Scammers very often use real brand logos & branding. It’s very easy for them to pull these logos off the internet and to make a fake looking email or web page that mimics the real thing. Before you know it you have entered you secure details and they have captured them.

Always double check the source such as the domain name. Make sure the site you are on has a valid SSL certificate.

Tip 6 – Poor grammar and spelling

As soon as you see poor grammar & spelling, be suspicious. Many scammers originate from countries where English is not the first language. This can be very helpful in flagging a phishing campaign.

Data corruption is a thing of the past, and your tech team has been fantastic in granting access to our web developers to allow their programs to link in.

“Knowall IT took over our IT system in July/August last year, when it was decided that we needed to move to the Cloud. It was complicated as many transitions go, we had three different companies sharing one server, but Knowall were very efficient and capable, ironed out the problems very quickly so that it would cause the least disruption to each business. All the Knowall IT staff are very polite, friendly and extremely helpful.

I would recommend Knowall IT to any company, to manage their IT system.”
