In fact, Union Built PC has been the leader in secure cloud solutions for Union Members and Union Offices since before most started worrying about cyber threats and online privacy. And we intend to stay one-step ahead of such threats long into the future.
Understanding ‘The Cloud’
The ‘cloud’ is a real buzzword, but what is it and how does it impact you and your Union Office?
Union Built Cloud services refer to storing your files somewhere other than your computer’s hard drive. Having data in the cloud also refers to the ability to access those files through the Internet. Your data is encrypted before making the journey over the Internet to the Union Built Cloud and, while they live on the Union Built Cloud servers, they’re also encrypted. The service doesn’t upload entire files every time they’re updated; just changes, saving you connection bandwidth and storage space.

The Union Built Cloud is also an automatic backup solution for your data keeping it safe and secure so if you’re personal computing systems are ever attacked, Union Built PC can easily restore all of your files in their most current state.
How Union Built PC Resolved the Cyber Terrorism Strike Against JATC Union Local 351
On July 14, 2016 Union Built PC received an email from Lou Jiacopello, Training Director of JATC 351. Lou reported that one of their workstations became infected with Ransomware. We quickly took steps to eliminate this threat to no avail. Union Built PC’s Director of Technical Support, Glenn Joseph, was quickly on hand to assess the problem.
Upon investigation, Glenn determined that the only backup JATC 351’s data was 3 days old and performing a complete restore would mean valuable data most definitely would be lost.
We were forced to advise our client that only solution to this problem was to pay the ransom. This did not sit well with us, and there was no guarantee that after paying the ransom all the data would be restored. This was, however, the only viable option.
Ransomware attacks data files and encrypts these files denying you access. This type of cyber attack forces you to pay a fee – the ransom – in order to obtain a key code that will unencrypt the files so they are restored and you can regain access. Payment is made via bitcoin, and can get very expensive. In this case our only option, due to the nature of the data, was to pay.
Glenn supervised the job from beginning to end, and we were able to fully restore all of JATC 351’s data. The job did not end here! Union Built PC provided JATC 351 with our secure Union Built Cloud Storage Solution, which backs up all data on a daily basis. The Service also provides for client reports regarding the status of daily Backups. These reports are sent to Union Built PC and analyzed, so that we, can monitor the safety of your data each day.
Union Built PC has now ensured that JATC 351 has a fully secure and reliable backup plan.
“We reached out to Union Built PC (as we have done in the past) to assist us when one of our workstations became infected with Ransomware. Glenn Joseph (Director of Technical Support) for Union Built PC contacted us and quickly assessed the problem. Thanks to Glenn we were able to get all of our data restored. Pete Marchese, Director of Operations for Union Built PC, recommended their Union Built Cloud Storage Solution to provide us with a secure backup plan. It is now in place and protecting our data. We never thought cyber terrorism would be something we’d have to worry about, but have now learned any person – any organization – can be vulnerable. We highly recommend Union Built PC and their Cloud Services to all Locals and Training Centers in order to provide reliable and secure Cloud Backup to keep you safe from Cyber Terrorism.”
