ScotSAC has recently been the target of ransomeware which caused a considerable amount of disruption to our computer systems. However, I am pleased to report that our systems are now back up and running, although there may be further work required over time. We are confident that no personal and sensitive data was compromised and our systems have now had improved protection and security installed. However, there will inevitably now be a delay in processing memberships and issuing cards, so please bear with us. Many thanks must go to Geoff our Director with IT responsibility and to Rod for rearranging their lives and devoting a great deal of time to sorting out this problem.
