Nocserv News… Plus How to Protect Yourself from Petya Malware

As we near the end of June, we are reflecting at Nocserv on how things went in our second quarter as a company. Two things come to mind: We believe we are about to move out of the start up phase and into growth phase in Q3, and we couldn’t have done it without all the overwhelming support of family, friends, and partners. THANK YOU. Please take a minute to look over some of our recent news and enjoy this info on how to protect yourself from the Petya virus.
