The incidences of Ransomware attacks on businesses is now at a frightening level, and still increasing, despite there being an armoury full of tools and methods which can be utilised in defence of your business system.

RMS has recently been called upon to assist several clients whose Back-office EPoS system became infected with Ransomware, probably as a result of someone in the clients business clicking on a seemingly innocuous looking link within an email. Until the system was rescued, the effect of the Ransomware on the clients business was disastrous with the system being inaccessible and unusable.

For a busy retailer having Ransomware on your back office computers and servers truly is a disaster to your daily operations. An inability for till transactions to be backed-up, for new products to be recorded into stock, to change product prices, and even check emails, are just some of the effects it can have on your business.

We care about your business and hence the reason for this Blog article asking you to take care of your EPoS and IT systems.

Read on to discover how to protect your business. ……..

Londoners and the under-35s were the most judgemental. Eighty per cent of respondents in these groups said they’re more likely to trust retailers that use up to date technology than those that do not.

When pushed to qualify their answers, respondents said they thought retailers who had invested in up to date technology came across as more professional, and committed to improving the overall shopping experience for their customers.
