Description

One day he received an email from a client with an invoice attached, but soon after opening it, his computer started to act strange. Messages popped up on his screen, his desktop background changed, and he couldn't open any of the client files saved on his hard drives.

Because of this, he was unable to process any of his client's accounts, and as it was coming up to a tax deadline, his clients were faced with fines due to late and overdue filings. And because of that, his firm took knocked to its reputation which made some of his clients leave and scared others away from working with him. It was a very stressful and worrying time for him.

He finally had to call in a computer specialist firm to help and try to restore his data, but this cost him tens of thousands, and as his backups were not up to date, there were many late hours spent manually re-entering data into his systems. And even with that, there was a lot of client data that simply could not be restored.
