Ransomware could really destroy your business - Make sure you are protected!

Ransomware -  Make sure your business is protected before it’s too late !


Local ICT companies that provide support services to local businesses are getting an increasing number of reports of systems being infected by what is known as Ransomware here in Malta. All over the world reports of businesses being heavily effected and indeed even going out of business because of this threat are being reported daily. In the US, the New York Times is treating this as a major issue. Many are labeling this threat a “Business Killer” because it can literally destroy your business. This type of Malware makes your files unusable and this includes your invoicing system and any other applications you may be using. Unless you have a backup of your data which is not also affected by this malware, you could potentially lose everything. It is extremely important that you have the correct protection and contingency measures in place. You need to be proactive as traditional antivirus solutions including corporate packages may simply not protect you against this threat.

Loading & Unloading of Containers: a much needed clarification

GRTU has recently insisted with the Department of Local Government for a clear policy to be introduced in relation to the loading and unloading of containers.

The issue relates to containers being loaded and unloaded within Localities as opposed to the Hal Far Groupage Complex. GRTU has been advocating the principle that traders had every right to request permission to place a container within a Locality as long as the entire contents of the container were to be delivered to the same recipient.

Containers carrying groupage are strictly to be unloaded at the Hal Far Groupage Complex in terms of the Motor Tractors Regulations.

Until recently, the practice to load or unload a container outside one’s warehouse consisted of simply obtaining a permit from the Local Council offices in that locality.
