Where does health comes from?

Vipassana means insight, awareness, clear vision. It is a journey of self healing by observing. We observe our thoughts, sounds and feelings without judgement without reacting to them. WE JUST ARE.

RANSOMWARE Returns To Spain: VIRAL Story DOMINATING The Spanish Tech and Business News Today. If you own a business and do not have robust, professionally managed IT security in place you are taking a large risk. Daily backup may help you recover, but many smaller companies without a dedicated IT department don’t even do weekly backups! Can you afford to be locked out of your data? Can you afford to pay ransom? Everis, one of the largest IT consulting companies in Spain, suffered a targeted ransomware attack on Monday, forcing the company to shut down all its computer systems until the issue gets resolved completely. The attackers asked Everis for a €750,000 ($835,923) ransom to get a decryption key to unlock their files as reported by bitcoin.es. Spain’s largest radio station SER (Sociedad Española de Radiodifusión) confirmed it had also been hit, saying it had suffered an attack “of the ransomware type” which has had a serious and widespread effect on all of all its computer systems.”
Here are some articles explaining the very serious situation. If you need fast, affordable help to get your business IT security up to current standards call DoctorLaptop on 675 993 069 (no calls before 11am answered, missed calls returned asap). I can test your local office network and wifi and internet/router connections to resolve any weak points, do a cloud interface security analysis of all cloud accounts, and check individual computers for infection and adequate protection. I can also review your data handling protocols for vulnerabilities. And please, don’t rely on a single free antivirus app to protect a valuable business. In today’s world all businesses need to budget for internet security and computer maintenance.
