Living with ransomware.

Hi, my name’s Gavin. Since the year 2000 I’ve held in-house, consultant and vendor roles related to Microsoft identity and security. In 2017, I was at ground zero when notPetya struck Maersk. This event opened my eyes to the human and financial impacts you don’t read about. It changed my career. Much as society has had to learn to live with COVID, today my mission is to help business owners understand what it takes to protect, detect and recover from ransomware, extortionware and destructive malware.

Read up on the story of the notPetya event and my recommendations in the post I published back in June, 2020: Maersk, me & notPetya
