Been a victim recently? A company that’s a client of ours (we don’t do their cybersecurity or IT) got hacked/ransomware’d, luckily they had a proper backup arrangement and were able to bring everything back up pretty quickly.

I’ve heard there’s a recent Microsoft Exchange exploit that’s causing an uptick in cases.
