Notably, the solution does not require months for deployment, and highly skilled teams to maintain it. </p> <p>Drawing from decades-long experience enabling MSPs in data protection, this expansion resolves the main obstacles hindering the broader adoption of DLP solutions: grueling roll-out and cumbersome ongoing administrative execution. </p> <p>For years, organizations have struggled to protect sensitive data from unauthorized access via external attacks or insider risks such as IT misconfigurations and human error. Only a handful of large enterprises had the resources to manage the overall complexity, high deployment costs, and more significant obstacles that come with DLP adoption. Which is why the global DLP market size is set to exceed US$6 billion by 2026, <a href="https://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/valued-to-be-6-billion-by-2026-data-loss-prevention-slated-for-robust-growth-worldwide-301395121.html" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="according to"><u>according to</u></a> Global Industry Analysts Inc.</p> <p>According to the 2021 Gartner® Market Guide for Data Loss Prevention, “Small and midsize organizations often struggle to implement and operate DLP tools. Consulting and managed DLP services can offer a path to value in terms of managing tools, but they cannot replace internal data knowledge and ownership of risk by business units.” [1]</p> <p>“Across the clients we work with daily, fear of their financial records or customer data appearing on Google search keeps them up at night. It keeps us up, too,” said Lawrence Troemel, President of NobleTec. “We want to help them close the gap, but it’s really tough to cost-effectively succeed within short time frames – especially when a new customer comes to us after a major breach.”</p> <p><strong>Acronis Advanced DLP</strong></p> <p>The integration of behavioral-based DLP capabilities into the Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud platform is what extends its ability to deliver unified data protection, cybersecurity and management across systems, data and workloads regardless of their location. It offers an unparalleled range of cyber protection capabilities that span the NIST cybersecurity framework from Identification to Recovery to ensure business continuity in the face of cybercriminals, insider risk threats or technology failure.</p> <p><strong>The Early Access version of Acronis Advanced DLP:</strong></p> <ul><li> <p>Protects sensitive data transferred via a wide array of user and system connections including for example, instant messaging and peripheral devices.</p> </li> <li> <p>Uses the same, unified Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud console and agent for data visibility and classification.</p> </li> <li> <p>Offers out-of-box data classification templates for common regulatory frameworks including GDPR, HIPAA and PCI DSS. </p> </li> <li> <p>Provides continuous monitoring for DLP incidents with multiple policy enforcement options, enabling ongoing automated policy adjustment to business-specifics.</p> </li> <li> <p>Includes robust audit and logging capabilities, giving administrators the ability to respond effectively to DLP events and conduct post-breach forensic investigations.</p> </li> </ul><p>With a single platform and agent enabling this highly accessible form of DLP, both MSPs and businesses will benefit from faster, easier deployment and time-to-value, while avoiding all the most common threats to data. These same benefits can be accrued by larger organizations needing immediate protection while evaluating more complex and sophisticated DLP programs with multi-year implementation cycles. </p> <p><strong>Acronis Early Access Program</strong></p> <p>This new Advanced DLP technology is now available in an Early Access Program via Acronis Cyber Protect Cloud.

The recent attack on the Bulgarian postal services proved it. The breach delayed the payment of thousands of pensions and forced an unknown number of business clients to seek alternative, and more expensive, ways to deliver their products.</p> <p>The main cyber threats in 2022 are not new in character, but their scale is unprecedented. The Covid-19 pandemic has already increased the number of cyber crimes by staggering 600%, and this year they will become more costly than before. If in 2015 the global damages were calculated to $5 trillion, in 2025 they are projected to reach $10.5 trillion.</p> <p>The consequences for organisations who were successfully targeted by cyber criminals can be so grave that they could go out of business altogether: financial and productivity losses, reputational damages, legal cases by affected clients and partners. Most often, hackers attack organisations in the fields of banking and finance, healthcare, corporations, higher education, not only because of their ready cash, but also because of the large amount of data, including personal information, that they keep. Unfortunately, weak protection also means that system breaches are registered very slowly. According to an IBM survey, this has taken affected companies an average of 197 days. Limiting the damages has taken them an average of 69 days.</p> <p>Social engineering that uses psychological tactics to trick individual users or employees to give access to information is the top cyber security threat of 2022. Its most popular forms are phishing and fake emails.</p> <p>Another top risk is the attack on third parties who possess client data of another company or organisation. In 2022, the danger is increasing as more companies outsource some of their activities – and with it access to sensitive information, to external organisations or freelancers. According to a CyberArk survey, 96% of organisations working with outside partners give them access to vital systems and thus expose themselves to hacking.</p> <p>Mistakes in configuring implemented cyber protection systems are also a common occurrence. Tests by Rapid7 detected such problems in 80% of the surveyed companies.</p> <p>Poor cyber hygiene, like using personal data while connected to unprotected WiFi networks, can have serious consequences to corporate and individual users. Using a VPN or multifactor identification is a must. According to surveys, a staggering number of organisations rely on their employees remembering passwords (60%) or keeping them on stick-it notes (42%), while 54% of IT specialists have not implemented two-step verification in the organisations where they work.</p> <p>Mobile and IoT devices are both extremely vulnerable. The average IoT device is attacked within 5 minutes after it has connected to the Internet.</p> <p>Ransomware attacks are getting more expensive – between 2018 and 2020 the average payment has jumped from $5,000 to $200,000. The expenses businesses had to make to recover after such an attack also jumped, from $761,000 in 2020 to $1,850,000 in 2021. In 2022, ransomware attacks are expected to become more complex, popular and easy to do.</p> <p>Inadequate post-attack procedures also hide significant risks. Each breach in security should be patched as soon as possible, but it is astonishing how many companies fail to do it. A 2021 survey showed that 80% of firms that have experienced a ransomware attack were targeted again soon afterwards.</p> <p>The situation resembles a true digital jungle where it seems impossible to survive. But there is a solution: being proactive. The main steps that we need to make include risk limitation and developing a strategy on what to do in case of a breach. The first part of the solution has both technological and human dimensions – human mistake is the most common cause for cyber security breaches. Individual and corporate users should be aware of the dangers and know how to avoid them. Data transferring should be limited and used only via cloud services. Downloading should be done carefully, from trusted sources. Passwords should be complex and change often. Software should be up-to-date. The systems should be regularly checked for leaks and breaches. A clear plan for what to do in case of a breach is also needed. It should include not only secure and current backup copies of the information, but also insurance against cyber risk and possible legal cases by affected clients.</p> <p>This is a gargantuan task for individual users and even organisations. The field is in a constant flow and it is not realistic to expect everyone to be aware of the latest threats or each company to have an adequate cyber security department. For best results one should use the services and solutions offered by specialised cyber security companies.</p> <p>The good news is that in Bulgaria work established local and international companies that offer top quality, constantly follow the trends and know which solutions are best for each individual case.</p> <p>"The Bulgarian professionals are significantly better prepared than their colleagues in the West, as they rely more on themselves rather than on expensive and modern systems," says Kaloyan Vasilev, founder of <strong>KiberSigurnost</strong>, a Bulgarian company (Sofia, 23 Academician Petar Dinekov St, киберсигурност.бг). "Sadly, they predominantly contribute to the Western market."</p> <p>What should a company know and do to enjoy good cyber protection in 2022? "Recognize the fact that it is vulnerable and exposed to various risks and decide to do something about it," says Boris Goncharov, Chief Strategy Officer at <strong>AMATAS</strong> (<em>Sofia, 141 Tsarigradsko Shose Blvd, <a href="https://amatas.com" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="amatas"><u>www.amatas.com</u></a></em>), a Bulgarian cybersecurity company with a global presence. "Cybersecurity is a complex problem that should be treated as a strategic priority. The question is not how much money we should spend or what product to buy, but what are the practical ways to make our organizations resilient. Of course, there are quick fixes that every organization should consider – enhancing user access control, testing for vulnerabilities and weaknesses, ensuring endpoint/network/web protection, educating the users, and establishing incident response capabilities."</p> <p>"Complete cyber protection is something <strong>Acronis</strong> aims for," says Plamen Toshev, General Manager for Bulgaria for the international leader in cybersecurity solutions (<em>Sofia, 59 G.M. Dimitrov, NV Tower, <a href="https://www.acronis.com" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="acronis"><u>www.acronis.com</u></a></em>). "A single solution providing safety of work on the Internet and in corporate environment. In our understanding, this solution should minimise the risks in the two major spheres in the field of security – the human factor and the complexity of cybersecurity solutions. Complete cyber protection effectively deals with these two major risks. Automation minimises the human factor and the integration of as many systems as possible in a single entity reduces the complexity. This is why Acronis has developed not just solutions, but a platform. It allows our partners to create their own solutions that can be fully integrated in ours and to practically work on one platform."</p> <p>Do smaller means less protected? According to Accenture's Cost of Cybercrime study, 43% of cyber attacks target small businesses and just 14% of those are prepared to defend themselves. The most common dangers for them are phishing and social engineering, compromised or stolen devices, and password theft.</p> <p>How can SMEs improve their cybersecurity? "Smaller means more agile and simple – both enablers for better cybersecurity," says Iva Tasheva, the co-founder and cybersecurity lead of <strong>CyEn</strong> (<em>+32 493 405 612, <a href="https://cyen.eu" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="CyEn"><u>www.CyEn.eu</u></a></em>), a family owned micro-consultancy in Brussels. "If SMEs are also cyber aware and commit to security, they will be better protected with limited investment. My advice to SMEs: use the well-oiled machine of information security standards (NIST, ISO27k) to improve your cybersecurity. Empower your employees to defend the organisation with a cybersecurity awareness and training programme."</p> <p>We should not forget that cyber security is important not only for adults, but also for children. The new generation has been present in the digital world since the day of their birth, and this hides many risks. Children can become easy prey to sexual crime or bullying, or to fall under the bad influence of popular TikTokers or YouTubers.</p> <p>"The most vulnerable are the children aged 8-16," says Yavor Kolev, Director IT and Cybersecurity at <strong>Lev Ins</strong> insurance company (<em>phone: 0800 10 200, <a href="https://www.lev-ins.com" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="lev ins"><u>www.lev-ins.com</u></a></em>). Together with the company, he is also engaged with the Protect the Child on the Internet social initiative (<a href="https://detetovinternet.bg" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="detetovinternet"><u><em>www.detetovinternet.bg</em></u></a>). "But the starting age is constantly decreasing. Parents nowadays give their 3-year-old a phone connected to the Internet and feel calm as the kid has something to do while they run errands. But at this moment the kid can open YouTube and find improper content that could disturb or traumatise them. Or can find on TikTok some of the teens who, in their desire for more likes, do reckless antics, like climbing to dangerously high places.

The report which surveyed over 6,200 IT users and IT managers from small businesses to enterprises across 22 countries, exposes some of the most critical shortcomings appearing in cyber protection practices today, examines why they’re appearing and offers guidance on how they can be fixed.</p> <p>One of our key findings last year was that 80% of organizations ran as many as 10 solutions simultaneously for data protection and cybersecurity — yet more than half of them suffered downtime because of data loss. Clearly, more solutions do not translate into more protection.</p> <p>This year, we see that trend getting worse: while 78% of organizations globally run as many as 10 different solutions, 76% of organizations experienced downtime due to data loss — a 25% increase from 2021. This downtime stemmed from a number of sources, including system crashes (52%), human error (42%), cyberattacks (36%) and insider attacks (20%).</p> <p><img alt="Acronis Cyber Protection Week 2022" class="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022%201.png" title="" /></p> <p>As a result, 61% of global organizations’ IT teams now report a preference for integrated solutions that replace their complicated stacks of cybersecurity and data protection tools with a single, unified console.</p> <p>“As the entire world is increasingly at risk from different types of attacks, accelerating to universal all-in-one solutions is the only way to achieve truly complete cyber protection. And that’s precisely the problem Acronis has set out to solve,” says Candid Wuest, Acronis V.P. of Cyber Protection Research. “Attackers don’t discriminate when it comes to means or targets, so strong and reliable security is no longer an option, it’s a necessity.”</p> <p><img alt="Acronis Cyber Protection Week 2022" class="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022%202.png" title="" /></p> <p><strong>Overconfidence as a trend: IT teams are overselling their readiness</strong></p> <p>We’ve traced another worrying trend that is responsible for cyberdefenses lowering and increasing IT security budgets: </p> <ul><li> <p>70% of organizations’ IT managers claim to have automated patch management. However, based on any reliable industry research, only a handful of companies follow the 72-hour “golden time” for patch management.</p> </li> <li> <p>82% also claim to have ransomware protection and remediation. Yet, successful attacks occur weekly and the size of ransom demands grows each year.</p> </li> <li> <p>20% claimed to be testing backup restoration weekly. Again, not consistent with any other industry-issued data.</p> </li> </ul><p><img alt="Acronis Cyber Protection Week 2022" class="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022%203.png" title="" /></p> <p>It seems that IT managers are trying to appear better prepared than they are; but that is, in turn, misleading their managers, boards of directors, industry analysts and customers. </p> <p>However, if the overwhelming majority of IT managers indeed have these solutions, they aren’t using them right: they have simply stocked their IT stacks with all of the recommended cybersecurity technologies — spending more money in vain.</p> <p>Our findings prove that organizations are spending more on IT security this year, but when we compare it to their overall IT budget, it becomes clear – organizations are still treating cyber protection as a “nice-to-have” not as a “must-have”:</p> <ul><li> <p>Half of organizations globally allocate less than 10% of their overall IT budget on IT security. </p> </li> <li> <p>Only 23% of organizations globally are investing over 15% of their overall IT budget in security — even despite the increasingly threatening cyber landscape.</p> </li> </ul><p><img alt="Acronis Cyber Protection Week 2022" class="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022%204.png" title="" /></p> <p><strong>Pandemic-driven spike in awareness proves temporary</strong></p> <p>Frequent backups that were fuelled by the shift to remote work are over: a third of IT managers only back up weekly, while another 25% back up monthly. Use of backup best practices is declining across the board — only 15% of organizations’ IT teams adhere to them.</p> <p>Same as last year, 10% of IT managers still aren’t sure if their company is subject to any data privacy regulations — proving that IT managers, like IT users, get stuck in their ways. </p> <p><img alt="Acronis Cyber Protection Week 2022" class="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022%205.png" title="" /></p> <p>According to our research, 86% of organizations globally are also concerned about the threat of increasing politically-driven cyberattacks caused by the worsening geopolitical climate — but their concern does not translate into improvements to their cyber protection.</p> <p>Bottom line, the outdated approaches that professional IT teams have relied on for years are now actively failing them. A comprehensive, easy-to-follow approach is essential to achieving a more reliable, holistic protection for data, applications and systems – one that combines cybersecurity, data protection and management into one solution.</p> <p><img alt="Acronis Cyber Protection Week 2022" class="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022%206.png" title="" /></p> <p><strong>Users show concern over cyberthreats, but backup habits remain unchanged</strong></p> <p>Only one in ten users backs up daily, while 34% of users back up on a monthly basis — a staggering 41% of users back up rarely or never. Still, 72% of users had to recover from backup at least once in the past year (33% — more than once). Meaning that some of the users who chose not to back up have permanently lost their data:</p> <ul><li> <p>43% of users update a week or more after an update release — of those, 7% take more than a month to perform these recommended updates. A decline in response time compared to 2021. </p> </li> <li> <p>While only 12% of users are following the recommended <a href="https://www.acronis.com/en-us/articles/backup-rule/" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="hybrid model of cloud and local backup"><u>hybrid model of cloud and local backup</u></a> storage, users have doubled down on cloud backup: for 4 years, we saw local backups shrinking from 62% in 2019 to 33% in 2022 — at the same time cloud backups jumped from 28% to 54%.</p> </li> <li> <p>66% of users would not know or be able to tell if their data had been modified. </p> </li> <li> <p>43% of users are not sure if their anti-malware solutions could protect against new and emerging cyberthreats.</p> </li> </ul><p><img alt="Acronis Cyber Protection Week 2022" class="" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022/Acronis%20Cyber%20Protection%20Week%202022%207.png" title="" /></p> <p>What we see here is a massive gap in how organizations and individuals approach cyber protection in theory — and in practice.

We see companies mature and invest in different regions of the world, opening opportunities for a vast number of specialists to grow, learn and excel in their passion for technology. </p> <p>Many companies invest in our country in search of quality employees with both experience and expertise. Effortel is no exception. The virtual mobile operator is located in Bulgaria with two offices that gather top talents from all around Europe, allowing them to develop their skill sets, explore new opportunities, and learn from the international know-how that the Effortel office represents. </p> <p>To dive into the knowledge of Effortel, we met with Mohamed Taman, who is Chief Solution Architect in the company. He has vast experience in software development and Solutions architecture. He has the opportunity to travel and live worldwide, learn and see many modern technologies and innovations.</p> <p><strong>What does Chief Solution Architect mean? Explain your day-to-day work with a few words? </strong></p> <p>The Chief Solutions Architect (CSA) plays a critical role within the organization. CSA encompasses business, system, information, security, application, and technology architecture. If we zoom out and look at the bigger picture, the CSA reports to the Chief Technology Officer (CTO). They work with other Executive Management staff to develop and manage new solutions and their implementation to address business challenges and improve customer service.</p> <p><img alt="Mohamed Taman" data-entity-type="" data-entity-uuid="" id="" src="/sites/default/files/issues/talk%20of%20the%20town/effortel/Effortel_Vagabond_MohamedTaman_2.jpg" title="Mohamed Taman, Chief Solution Architect at Effortel" /></p> <p>At Effortel, we have an Enterprise Architecture Board (EAB), and we are collaborating to have the best of the best solutions for our customers. </p> <p>My position is the bridge between IT and business operations to ensure everyone is aligned in developing and implementing technical solutions for business problems. I am responsible for evaluating the organization’s business needs and determining how IT can support them by leveraging software, hardware, or infrastructure. My day-to-day job involves a lot of different tasks and roles, which is what makes it a challenging but exciting job. </p> <p>And if we zoom in a bit and look into the details, my daily responsibilities include leading brainstorming sessions to develop potential solutions for business needs or problems. I also identify opportunities for process improvements and identify areas where IT can support business needs and goals.</p> <p>Working with business units to develop IT strategies and improve current IT implementations is crucial to ensuring we always give quality work to our customers. Building and migrating software and services across the organization, working with product and delivery teams to develop scalable solutions and products, and communicating and consulting with clients and internal stakeholders to develop appropriate solutions are also part of my job. So, as you can tell, it is a lot of responsibility, and the role requires excellent structure, tight scheduling, dedication, and focus. </p> <p><strong>If you could go back in time and meet with your younger self, what advice would you give him?</strong></p> <p>I will keep doing what I was doing. Each age has circumstances and experiences. However, I can advise my younger self first not to waste time and think wisely about spending it. Second - keep the quality of learning as much as you can.</p> <p><strong>You are always in the public eye, speaking at different conferences and events, but what do people don’t know about Mohamed Taman?</strong></p> <p>I am a simple person. I love to get closer to the community I live with and get to know the people in the country I am visiting. I like to explore places, socialize with local people and learn about the language and the culture of the country I live in. </p> <p>I also like cycling, walking, driving, and swimming. And as drawing was my hobby, and coding took over this part, I learned how to photograph as a kind of drawing digitally to further develop my passion for creativity.</p> <p>Finally, I like adventures and trying new things, as I always say: “You will never know unless you try.”</p> <p><strong>What would you advise a young person that is just now starting to build their career in the technology field? Do you have a success formula?</strong></p> <p>Everyone has their success formula that suits their character and circumstances, so my successful scenario doesn't need to fit someone else, but the steps - may be yes.</p> <p>My advice is to take care of your time and how you spend it. Learning and investing in yourself will pay off in the long run. The theory doesn’t work without practice, and from here, experience comes. </p> <p>In addition, try to listen as much as you can. Analyze, think and take what suits you. </p> <p>I cannot miss the usual “wake up early, exercise,” but believe me, this is important not only to keep your precious health but to bring you more energy and a better mood. </p> <p>It is also important to accept feedback and try not to be emotional. Take it and analyze it. People are different. </p> <p>And last but not least - don’t be shy to ask and express your opinion.</p> <p><strong>How do you see technology change in 10 years? When should we expect the next big step technology-wise, and what do you think it would be?</strong></p> <p>We are already in a significant technology shift, the data era, where data is the new wealth. We see AI and machine learning taking place everywhere, and therefore robots are becoming advanced enough to take care of everything. And a quick, fun story to back this up. I often travel to Serbia, and nowadays, I mainly depend on my autopilot in the car - where it is suitable and safe, of course. </p> <p><strong>What is the message behind the code?</strong></p> <p>There are many messages we can have behind the code. However, I have one rule that I apply to everything in my life and my work: Time is the most precious free asset to waste, and we should spend it on valuable things. </p> <p>We are developing innovative solutions to satisfy our clients’ needs and serve the customers in the most flexible, fast, and secure way. The most important message behind the code is to bring your best in everything you do with outstanding quality and efficiency and focus on the next significant innovation to come. </p> <p><strong>What does being a speaker at so many events bring to you? Tell us more about how these experiences affect you on a deeper and professional level. </strong></p> <p>Besides my day-to-day job, I work with the international community. As a Java Champion, Oracle ace, Jakarta EE (Enterprise Edition) Ambassador, and Java Community Process member, I participate in the creation of new technology, setting the trends, especially in Java and its ecosystems. </p> <p>Based on that, I speak about what is new and upcoming in Java and ecosystems at conferences worldwide, to teach students, developers, and others the best practices, and share our knowledge with them about new things and the future of technology, so they are better equipped in their day-to-day jobs and decisions.</p> <p>The effect of all that on my professional life is enormous. It is a win-win situation. I am lucky to peek behind the curtains from a high tech point of view, which sharpens my knowledge. I also learn from the audience's questions and feedback as I teach. From other speakers as well, as they are experts in different areas. All this helps me become even better at what I do and gives me the ability to add more value for my team; with the learning sessions and workshops, and we have to be better and better at solving our daily problems. </p> <p>You can find more and connect with Mohamed Taman on his social media: <a href="https://www.linkedin.com/in/mohamedtaman/" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="Linkedin">LinkedIn</a>, <a href="https://twitter.com/_tamanm" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="twitter"><u>Twitter</u></a> and <a href="https://github.com/mohamed-taman" rel="noopener" target="_blank" title="GitHub"><u>GitHub</u></a>.</p> </div> <a href="/index.php/taxonomy/term/106" hreflang="en">Web Exclusive</a> <div class="field field--name-field-mt-post-category field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden field--entity-reference-target-type-taxonomy-term clearfix field__items"> <div class="field__item"><a href="/index.php/advertorials/business" hreflang="en">BUSINESS</a></div> </div> <section class="field field--name-comment field--type-comment field--label-above comment-wrapper"> <h2 class="title comment-form__title">Add new comment</h2> <drupal-render-placeholder callback="comment.lazy_builders:renderForm" arguments="0=node&amp;1=3303&amp;2=comment&amp;3=comment" token="Kdz-pDObaBummPZsRJJi76iBUxjeWKypIxl-GFVOokA"></drupal-render-placeholder> </section> Tue, 15 Feb 2022 15:27:37 +0000 DimanaT 3303 at http://vagabond.bg http://vagabond.bg/index.php/mohamed-taman-code-life-3303#comments FIRST ANNUAL ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND GOVERNANCE (ESG) REPORT BY ACRONIS http://vagabond.bg/index.php/first-annual-environmental-social-and-governance-esg-report-acronis-3302 <span class="field field--name-title field--type-string field--label-hidden">FIRST ANNUAL ENVIRONMENTAL, SOCIAL, AND GOVERNANCE (ESG) REPORT BY ACRONIS</span> <span class="field field--name-uid field--type-entity-reference field--label-hidden"><a title="View user profile." href="/index.php/user/251" lang="" about="/index.php/user/251" typeof="schema:Person" property="schema:name" datatype="" class="username">DimanaT</a></span> <span class="field field--name-created field--type-created field--label-hidden">Tue, 02/15/2022 - 17:21</span> <div class="clearfix text-formatted field field--name-body field--type-text-with-summary field--label-hidden field__item"><p>Acronis announced the results of its first annual Environmental, Social, and Governance (ESG) Report.
