How do you prepare for Ransomware and recover from infection?

Gerard Burgess, Sales Engineer
Pete Bouris, Territory Account Manager


Ransomware has become the biggest risk to businesses, with an attack estimated to occur every 11 seconds in 2021. IT Security vendors alone cannot guarantee the protection of your customers’ data.

The Australian Cyber Security Centre (ACSC) published “The Essential Eight”, a series of baseline mitigation strategies taken from the ACSC’s Strategies to Mitigate Cyber Security Incidents recommended for organisations. Implementing these strategies as a minimum makes it much harder for adversaries to compromise systems.

The presentation will cover:

  • ‘The Essential Eight’ and how your customer’s organisation data recovery system fit in the Maturity Level to mitigate against cyber threats.
  • The Arcserve and StorageCraft's combined product portfolio addresses every use case and business continuity challenge.
  • Demonstration of the industry-leading backup and disaster recovery platform - remote monitoring and management from a single console.
We would also like to invite you to share your ransomware prevention strategies with us.

The best strategy voted by SMBiT Professionals members will receive a $150 universal visa card.

Reasons why software projects go horribly wrong and how to break free from the cycle.
If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!

Edward Deane – Managing Director at 2excel Software and App Development


This presentation will run through the 2excel step-by-step process which demonstrates how to consistently deliver software and apps on time, within budget and above expectation.

You can use the same method when looking at software solutions for your clients, whether off the shelf or for custom development.

We hope to share some of the many reasons why so many software projects fail and how you can avoid this with your clients by planning for a project correctly.

Who knows? This presentation might help you break free from a cycle of poor project management and rein in better business prospects, with the assistance of implementing improved planning strategies.

We will cover:

  • Recent interesting projects
  • Software scoping documents
  • Prototype examples
  • Project planning with scrum
  • Different testing plans for quality control
