Ransomware is more common than you think

RansomewareRansomeware has grown in occurrence and sophistication in recent months. One of the best known forms, called CryptoWall, just had Version 4 released.  It has a greatly improved ability to hide from antivirus software and firewalls. It is estimated that the  distributors of CryptoWall made more than $25 million in 2015. There have been recent indications that the bad actors are concerned about maintaining the belief that paying the ransom will really allow for file recovery. As such, in some instances, they have been found on PC help forums, assisting victims with file recovery and payment issues. How big of them!

Planning for Blackouts

Planning for Blackouts

The power grid failure need to be considered in DR BC planning. A power grid consists of a set of large power plants (hydro-power plants, wind farms, solar panel farms, nuclear power plants, etc.) all connected together by wires. A grid can be as big as half of the United States.

Most grids work very well as a power-distribution systems because they allow power sharing very economically. For example, a power company needs to take a power plant or a transmission tower off line for maintenance, the other parts of the grid can pick up the slack.  However that also is the greatest risk as weather can impact on part of the grid that can the trickle down and impact the rest of the grid.

Setting the standard for IT Infrastructure

Setting the standard for IT Infrastructure

Infrastructure and governanceInformation infrastructure and governance is not on most our minds every day. Many CIO thing the enterprise operations staff will figure it out. Or maybe that three-ring binder of rules and policies will cover it.

Neither is true. Information infrastructure and governance is an all-in proposition. It requires diligence on the part of employees, oversight on the part of management, direction from the enterprise strategy, and true, firm support from company ownership levels. It ain’t easy.

But it’s mandatory. In this litigious age, the smallest infraction from information management policy can - and will - result in grievous penalty and even business-threatening consequences.
