The #ADSIC confirmed that the #AbuDhabiGovernment's network is safe. This came after hundreds of countries were exposed to 'WannaCry,’ the #ransomware #virus that has affected the work of many institutions.
In a statement, the centre called on all government agencies to continue taking the necessary precautionary measures, increase readiness and continuous monitoring of their systems, and prepare a backup copy of their electronic data to avoid any loss in the event of an attack.
It cautioned that the procedures taken to protect electronic programmes and storage capacities "do not mean that we are far from the virus. Therefore, we call on all users of the network including government agencies and their employees to investigate sources of e-mails received to avoid exposure of the network's services and contents to the #malicious virus." The centre thanked the government authorities for their continuous efforts in securing the government network in the emirate of #AbuDhabi, and for performing their roles efficiently. #uae #sharjah #sharjah24 #الإمارات #الشارقة #الشارقة24
