Our Origin Story
Jeff Herbert, the director of Cybercraft, came across the first virus in New Zealand 30 years ago. He was issued to a job at a Strawberry Farm, where they had two computers that were used for the distribution of the strawberries. The computers had stopped working and had on the monitor screen “You're Stoned” pop up. After 2 days of Jeff working on it, he had a company at the US write on a floppy disk an Anti-Virus
specifically for that Virus and was sent through to New Zealand. After facing this, Jeff learned of the challenges that businesses face when there is a disruption in technology.
The strawberry owners lost 10s of thousands of dollars during the disruption from this virus. Ever since then Jeff’s mission has been to assist business owners and executives to become more cyber resilient.
