“We experienced a ransomware attack previously and lost nearly 90 percent of our data. It was a painful lesson for us, and we realised that the root cause is due to lack of IT knowledge and management, resulting in poor data handling and backup,” said Sally Tan, Sales and Marketing Director, Inter-Span Marketing. “We are thankful to have implemented IT Expert Services with FUJIFILM Business Innovation Singapore. The local team is very responsive, and our IT issues can be resolved promptly. With their IT expertise, we can now mitigate all possible IT issues, strengthen our IT infrastructure and concentrate on our key business priorities without any worry of data breach.”
