Today provides another opportunity to show what type of effect ransomware can have on an organization as it has been a day in which there are massive globally reaching ransomware attacks affecting 16 organizations and 74 countries so far. It has been dubbed “wannacry” and has even shut down hospitals in the UK as a result of their files being encrypted and phones being unable to receive calls.
There are more and more attacks and unfortunately, things are getting worse as hackers get more sophisticated and are able to stay ahead of the protection against them. It is slowly becoming a reality that regardless of how big or small and even what industry you are in disaster recovery needs to be a priority.
Major infrastructure components like hospitals can cripple a city and this can literally be the difference between life and death in this case as the world becomes more reliant on technology and less able to function without it.
