Lab Gibraltar – proud to support the “Sierra Leone Marathon”.

 

We were proud to contribute to the Sierra Leone Marathon by supporting Phil Langley, Associate Director Ibex Insurance Services, (www.everydayhero.co.uk/phil-langley) who raises money for the good cause “Street Child”!

The Sierra Leone Marathon is a unique event uniting all participants in one common goal: support the projects of the UK charity “Street Child”. The “Everydayheroes”, like Phil Langley, had the opportunity to visit, meet and draw inspiration from the very children they’ve been fundraising for – some of the most vulnerable children in the world.

“Street Child” believes that every child has a right to a safe home and an education. The organisation supports at risk Ebola orphans to go to school. They’ve already helped over 50,000 children to go to school and enabled thousands of families to generate sustainable incomes so that their children can stay in education.

Lab Gibraltar sponsored a price for a raffle, organised by Phil Langley and with the support of Ibex Insurance, offering two weekend passes for the Gibraltar Music Festival.

“The Ebola epidemic in Sierra Leone and Liberia cost over 4,000 lives and orphaned over 12,000 children. Street Child has identified 1,400 seriously at-risk Ebola orphans who are in urgent need of support. At the outset, it was the thought of trying to help children in the most inaccessible parts of one of the poorest countries in the world that were living on the streets and had no access to education.”

9 June – International Archives Day

This international day aims to raise awareness amongst organisations regarding the importance of archiving media, different types of documents and retention periods.

 

With good management, archives explain and justify the past. They may also contribute to the future actions of an organisation and help ensure its proper function: With triple administrative, legal and testimonial functions the archives allow:

  • Optimised document flow
  • Improved traceability of information
  • Increased performance, efficiency and help reduce costs
  • Conformity with legislation

By correct classification of archives, organisations have clear and efficient access information. As testimony to the past, archiving is also a means of guaranteeing access to information in cases of dispute.

Like Mister Archive, Labgroup ensures the proper management of an organisations information throughout its lifecycle.

An efficient Records Management or Archiving solution ensures that an archive is:

  • authentic – ensures the integrity of the information (no modification of the content)
  • traced  full history of the information throughout its lifecycle
  • perennial – ensures the readability of information over time

Labgroup–your partner for analogue and digital archiving management

 

Since 1977, Labgroup has provided information management and archiving services to organisations.

1st February 2017, Lab Luxembourg SA (Labgroup) became the first certified PSDC (Provider of Digitisation and/or Conservation Services), both for digitisation and conservation services. The legislator in Luxembourg anticipated a transformation of physical to digital with the implementation of the Law of the 25th July 2015 on electronic archiving. This law recognises the presumption of conformity given to electronic copies of paper documents, produced and stored by a certified “PSDC”.

This presumption of conformity is under the condition that the copy complies with a set of methodological and technical requirements guaranteeing its fidelity to the original paper document, as well as its non-alteration over time.

Therefore, with a guarantee from the Luxembourg State, the holders of information from all European countries can now entrust Labgroup with both digitisation operations and the storage of documents with legal value.

 Labgroup’s range of services includes digitising of paper documents, storing and destroying physical archives, capturing and conserving electronic archives, protecting and restoring data and preserving IT media.

Protecting your data against cyberattacks

Labgroup guarantees its clients protection from any ransomware attack due to highest security standards.

The current events of ransomware attacks hit over 300 000 computers around the world infiltrating banks, hospitals and government institutions.
Labgroup is pleased to inform its clients that no incident of a cyberattack or ransomware attack has been registered/reported. No client of Labgroup, using cloud computing (only for managed services), content & records management or data protection services, has been affected by these recent incidents.

Labgroup constantly improves its security measures while investing in high malware prevention solutions. The result, a complete protection against malicious software! The information lifecycle management company is proud to confirm that to this day, Labgroup has not been infiltrated or affected by a cyberattack.

What is ransomware?

The ransomware is distributed by emails, infecting the computer of the recipient. The software encrypts all files and a ransom is asked to be paid. The ransomware further attempts to infect other machines on the same network. In the specific case of ransomware Wannacry, the infection spreads without any user interaction, using a Windows vulnerability on a commonly used network protocol. 
Ransomware can:

  • Prevent you from accessing your data.
  • Encrypt files so you can’t use them.
  • Stop certain apps from running (like your web browser).

 

Why is malware so effective?

Most of us have already experienced a typical spam mail in our email account, containing an attached file (with a non-common extension) or URL link, suspicious at first sight.
New cyberattacks are more sophisticated, working with .pdf extensions and even files containing just a part of the malicious software code to deviate antispam/virus software.
Rather than sending the code within one file, which is (often) automatically detected by a standard antivirus/spam system, the malicious software code is sent in parts, integrated into non-suspicious, for instance, .jpeg or .pdf files and non-detectable by standard antivirus software.

If opened, the part of the code is silently installed on your computer, waiting for the other pieces of the malware puzzle to be integrated. Once all pieces of the puzzle are installed, they merge into one single code, infecting the computer of the victim.

How does Labgroup ensure a complete protection to its clients?

In order to guarantee a complete protection against cyberattacks, Labgroup implemented different solutions and follows strict security processes on several levels.
Firstly, the incoming emails and files run through a quick but effective Antispam/Antivirus filter allowing the system to remove the standard spam emails/malicious files. 
Secondly, Labgroup is collaborating with the company ODI Security systems by using ODIX CDR (Content Disarm & Reconstruction) that prevents the insertion of malware, ransomware and malicious activities. Contrary to other security systems, ODIX CDR considers all incoming files and emails as malicious, processing all incoming files, removing the elements that do not match the files type’s standards or set policies, then rebuilds the files into clean versions. Even the malware puzzle system can’t trick the ODIX algorithms, guaranteeing all our clients the highest protection available on the market.
Labgroup constantly invests in its security systems, so it seemed only natural to work with this pioneer in the field of malware prevention by integrating ODI Share and ODI Mail into its protection system. ODI offers a next generation threat neutralisation and removal process based on advanced heuristics and mathematical algorithms, originally developed for the military and specially created to protect companies, like Labgroup, against malware. 
Besides this, Labgroup implemented the fourth generation of firewalls, follows the recommended standard security measures for cybersecurity and conforms to the market security rules.
 

 Functional backups are highly recommended to restore your files easily.

Protect all your business information with Labgroup. We guarantee protection, data recovery and business continuity with our backuponline services.

Backup is done incrementally and automatically to ensure minimal network resources while also safeguarding user productivity. In the case of a cyberattack, your data can be restored safely using our IT Recovery service.
