Earlier this month, the entire world became aware of the Wanna Cry Ransomware Virus attack. While an attack of this scale is certainly headline news, there are similar occurrences happening every day on a very local and personal level. Just such as call was recently received from Austin Hill, Support Engineer, at RightSize Solutions.
“One of our client employees had called because they had received an email from their kid’s school district asking to open link to a google doc. Not thinking anything of this, the client had tried to open the link, but fortunately, it had been detected and blocked in the RightSize Solutions environment. Austin immediately further researched the situation to discover a Nationwide ‘Google Docs’ Email Phishing Scam and provided the client with the proper guidance.”
