Posted on: August 2nd, 2017 by

We are excited to announce the August issue of OUCH! This month, led by Guest Editor Keith Palmgren, we explain Backups and Recovery. When all else fails, backups are often your last resort, to include dealing with Ransomware. Unfortunately, even though backups are very simple, many people fail to do them. Share OUCH! with your family, friends, and coworkers.
