Crossroads RMC Tip of the Week: How to Prevent Your Company From Being a Victim of Ransomware

This is unfortunately becoming a common occurrence in today’s digital society and we are hearing about these sort of attacks quite frequently.

There are a few dos and don’ts when it comes to ransomware as recommended by Norton 360:   

  1. Do not pay the ransom. It only encourages and funds these attackers. Even if the ransom is paid, there is no guarantee that you will be able to regain access to your files.
  2. Restore any impacted files from a known good backup. Restoration of your files from a backup is the fastest way to regain access to your data.
  3. Do not provide personal information when answering an email, unsolicited phone call, text message or instant message. Phishers will try to trick employees into installing malware, or gain intelligence for attacks by claiming to be from IT. Be sure to contact your IT department if you or your coworkers receive suspicious calls.
  4. Use reputable antivirus software and a firewall. Maintaining a strong firewall and keeping your security software up to date are critical. It’s important to use antivirus software from a reputable company because of all the fake software out there.
  5. Do employ content scanning and filtering on your mail servers. Inbound e-mails should be scanned for known threats and should block any attachment types that could pose a threat.
  6. Do make sure that all systems and software are up-to-date with relevant patches. Exploit kits hosted on compromised websites are commonly used to spread malware. Regular patching of vulnerable software is necessary to help prevent infection.
  7. If traveling, alert your IT department beforehand, especially if you’re going to be using public wireless Internet. Make sure you use a trustworthy Virtual Private Network (VPN) when accessing public Wi-Fi like Norton Secure VPN.

Infor LX & BPCS Tip of the Week: What is EGLi?

EGLi provides Infor LX Configurable Enterprise Accounting (CEA) functionality including Advanced Transaction Processing (ATP), a configurable ledger, and batch transaction processing in the IDF architecture.

EGLi is a complete replacement for CEA. Infor LX applications integrate with EGLi, and subsystem transactions generated in Infor LX are used to create journal entries in EGLi. The Infor LX integration system parameters allow you to specify whether CEA or EGLi is your primary financial product.

We recommend that you select CEA while you test the integration. The primary financial product flag and the CEA migration programs are designed to assist existing CEA clients with their implementation of EGLi. Journals are produced in both GL systems so you can verify that the data in both GL systems are the same. This integration includes migration programs that copy your existing CEA files to corresponding EGLi files. After you run the migration programs, EGLi should be configured and ready to use. If you are already running IDF via Ming.le or SiW, before you install EGLi, you will need to see the Ming.le integration guide for instructions on how to export EGLi tasks from IDF to SiW/Ming.le.
