You may be aware that on Monday Victorian Sliders suffered a cyber-attack similar to the one that Custom Made Group suffered last week.

The Victorian Sliders team worked diligently to get the system up and running, I am pleased to announce that we are now back at full manufacturing capacity.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank everyone involved in reacting to this malicious, faceless crime in such a professional manner. I would also like to thank our customers for their understanding, our suppliers for their patience, and most of all our staff who have done everything they could to minimise the impact on our valued customers.

Finally, I’d like to add a cautionary note to all my industry colleagues to ensure that your fire walls and security settings are up to date, your staff are trained not to open any suspicious emails, you back-up your data on a regular basis and you have adequate insurance cover should the worst happen. This is the second time in three years I have experienced an attack of this kind across two different companies, which may seem “unlucky” however after conversations with contacts and the authorities, cyber-attacks are now becoming an increasing threat to every business. So please protect yourselves as much as you can.

Kind regards,

Andy Jones
