EverChain and its employees believe in giving back to the local and global community. Each year, with the full support of the company, members of the team participate in and contribute to a wide variety of philanthropic and charitable initiatives aimed at supporting causes close to their hearts. The most recent example is from our Chief Technology Officer, Renato Marteleto. Renato, his wife, and two colleagues just returned from a week-long humanitarian mission to the Ubuntu Nation at Dzaleka Refugee Camp in Malawi, Africa, organized by the Fraternity Without Borders (FWB) nonprofit chapters in Canada and in the USA.

Sophos has released its 2022 ransomware report based on real-world IT professionals’ experiences last year, across mid-sized organizations in 31 different countries. The study concluded that the number of attacks is up, with increasing complexity and impact. About 2/3 of organizations involved in this study indicated that they were hit by ransomware in 2021, which represents an increase of 78% over the previous year. Ransomware works by encrypting a company’s data so they cannot access it until they pay the ransom. The success rate of these attacks increased to 65% of organizations having the data encrypted as a direct consequence of the attacks, from 54% in the previous year. Lastly, 4% of the victims experienced an extortion-only attack where data was not encrypted but there was a threat to expose the data publicly.
