The No More Ransom Project — A couple of years ago, we at Netvantage got hit by ransomware. When that happens, your life turns into a giant ball of SUCK quick, fast, and in a hurry.

Spread the word and support No More Ransom so we can all help prevent other people’s lives from turning into a giant ball of suck. …and, in case you’re curious, we take regular and reliable backups of our work data so our ransomware attack amounted to about a day’s worth of lost files and about 2 hours of inconvenience while we restored the last backup. In light of the alternative, I consider us very lucky.
