In our August SIMformation we look at new "tricks" the malware writers are using as Phishing attacks become more sophisticated.  Things have progressed past simple "Nigerian Prince" e-mails as Phishing now accounts for more than $2.7 billion in losses annually.  We also look at Windows 10 and the gain in market share it is finally experiencing, as businesses wake up to the fact that Windows 7 will go out of support early in 2020 and thus need to be making plans to transition to the newer operating system.  We also look at a new Ransomware variant, as this malware attack also won't go away and again is becoming more sophisticated in how the attack is staged.  Finally, we look at the dark side of Cloud computing – the providers make claims about performance, but can you really verify if you are getting the servers, processing speeds, backups and security you are paying for?  We have some tips to watch out for when evaluating Cloud hosts.
