How healthy are your backups?

November 9, 2018

Recently a Windows 10 Update caused irrecoverable file deletion on some user’s systems. These people had their documents, music, pictures and videos deleted forever with only one chance of recovery, backups. This is why this month we’re focusing on ensuring our customers have the right systems in place to recover in the case of a disaster. Our backup audits ensure that even if your business gets hit by a meteor, we can still get your IT systems back up and running again easily.

Today’s the last day of our discounted rate on our professional backup audits and bookings are filling up, so call now to reserve a spot at our cheapest rate!

Discounted rate ends 9th of November, call us for updated prices and availability.

Recent phishing emails from “Microsoft”

May 29, 2018

Microsoft Phishing example

Received any phishy emails lately? We’ve noticed an upspike in fake emails pretending to be big IT companies such as Microsoft and Apple. These emails pretend that you need to change your password or enter your bank details or something similar in order to scam your details from you. This can then be used to commit fraud, identity theft, and other cyber crimes. According to an ACCC report, $174,913 Australian dollars have been lost this year to phishing attacks.

Above you can see an example of a phishing email with some red-flags highlighted. Make sure to always be suspicious of ANY email you receive. It is a good idea to always double-check the sender address and read the entire email before clicking any links or attachments. If anything stands out as suspicious then don’t risk it!

Check out The ACCC’s Scamwatch for a better idea on how scams affect everyday Australians.

If you have any questions or suspicions about an email, call, text or webpage, give us a call and our experts can help keep you safe online.
