RackTop Systems, a leading and innovative provider of cyberstorage solutions that actively defend against ransomware and insider threats, today announced it has been named a winner of four 2022 Platinum Hermes Creative Awards for the It’s Your Data campaign. Building on the success of their prior collaboration, the series was produced by Shine Creative. RackTop won in the interactive media category for Digital Advertising, Video Ad as well as three awards in the Electronic Media, Video category for Video Series, Marketing Product, and Corporate Image.
RackTop’s “It’s Your Data” campaign illustrates complex modern cyber problems in amusing and relatable ways. Since the video series first launched with Volume 1 in 2019, the campaign has evolved with more specific and timely situations. For example, “Medical Records” speaks to patient data being the target of ransomware and the challenges admins face when attempting to negotiate recovery of data after it’s been stolen. “Intervention” makes light of lax data security measures. “Crazy Wall” illuminates the fact that cyber attacks are often connected in unexpected ways. And finally, “Snapshots” exposes the fact that the most common ransomware recovery strategy is flawed.
