Cyber Attack Reassurance From Riskex

On Friday 12th May 2017 we saw global coordinated ransomware attacks on thousands of private and public sector organisations across dozens of countries.

The Riskex senior technical operations team have been closely monitoring all Riskex systems throughout the weekend, and have deployed even more strict data security controls than usual.

We can reassure everyone that we will continue to monitor the world situation and keep the controls in place until our technical team are satisfied that the threat has reduced to acceptable levels.  This is in line with our ISO 27001 protocol, and industry best-practice and we will maintain this additional security to safeguard all our systems during this time.

We are pleased to reassure all our clients that none of the Riskex systems have been affected and our team will continue to closely monitor activity for patterns regarding the recent global cyber attacks.

If you have any concerns or questions please contact our Technical Operations Director, James Sharp on 01525 290109.
