In our July issue of SIMformation, we discuss how many companies are "paying up" the ransom demanded to de-encrypt their data files when struck with ransomware attacks, and urge you again to have a plan in place to help minimize the impact on your company should you be infected.  We continue our look at Cloud storage, and how some Cloud providers are also luring you into using their "flavor" of a database program, thus "locking in" your company data and tying you to that provider alone.  We look at 3-D printers and how the home market is unimpressed with them, and point out how your WiFi enabled printer could pose a danger for hacker attacks.  Plus, a computer program has rendered a masterpiece .. you will have to see it to believe it!
