How to protect ourselves
It can be seen that cybercriminals are motivated by money and all computer users, without any exceptions, are vulnerable. If you get attacked by a ransomware virus, first switch your computer off. Some malicious software first shows the message concerning infection and then it encrypts our files. In such case we can prevent the encryption of at least some data. Files should then be restored by connecting the disc to a different computer, which hasn’t been connected to the network in order to eliminate for the virus the possibility to connect with the CnC server. Without this it is unable to encrypt files.
Malware, classified today as ransomware (combination of words ransom and software) became a widely discussed topic already a few years ago. In 2013, the most famous virus belonging to this category – CryptoLocker – allowed its creators to “earn” as much as 27 million dollars during its first attack. According to the estimations of McAfee Labs, during one campaign of sending CyptoLocker criminals are able to get even 325 million dollars. Even FBI did not avoid the attack and ransom demand.
Creating good relationships with clients constitutes the basis of development of each business. It is necessary to take into consideration the needs of the other part and try your best to meet them. Especially at the beginning of cooperation it is worth to devote a lot of attention to each other in order to understand your partner in the best possible way and build expert’s authority.
It was easily predictable that the international success of Xopero will also reach our neighbors from the Czech Republic. We met our colleagues from the other side of our southern border for the first time by total accident during one of the events dedicated to our sector in 2016. Already in August we organized the training for our Czech friends after which the localization of materials began. As we acted quickly and efficiently, on February 1st we managed to open Xopero office in Prague. It constituted a very important step in our further cooperation and in the process of entering the new market.
