The research presented in this report has a clear message; your organisation will almost certainly be the victim of a targeted cyber-attack at some point. There is a greater than 1 in 10 chance that this will lead to serious data loss and/or reputational damage.

Most people, when thinking of enterprise storage, will think of SAN and NAS, with a few going as far as DAS.  However, the growth of server-side storage, where specialised flash-based PCIe and M2 cards is leading to a far more complex estate of different non-volatile storage platforms.  Pulling all of these together along with using volatile storage (i.e. DIMM memory) can provide massive improvements in data performance - for little outlay.  This presentation, given by Clive Longbottom at an event with Viadex and PernixData, shows how different storage platforms are positioned in their means to adequately present data to the compute environment in terms of latency, and then looks at what is required to manage a highly complex and heterogeneous storage platform.

Clive Longbottom gave a presentation at SmartIoT London on the 12th April 2016 on how important it is to understand the difference between the IoT (those devices that you have total control over) and the IoE (those devices that you want data from, but have no direct control over).  The slide deck for that presentation is provided here.

Windows 10 has an unnerving habit of throwing up a screen following certain updates that says "all your files are right where you left them". Quocirca has not been alone on first seeing this, in thinking it might be a ransomware message. Microsoft has said it is planning to change the alert following user complaints.
