Details of the recent WannaCry attack has shaken public and private sector organizations across the world. We have developed a briefing document that should help raise awareness of the threat and help you and your team deal with this critical business issue.
At a time when technological advances are increasingly supporting critical business operations, maintaining business as usual - including smooth IT operations - in the wake of emerging cyber-attacks has become a mammoth task. Cyber-attacks are forcing organizations to re-think how to deal with cyber related threats. ‘Leading practice’ – in terms of approach and pace – appears to be increasingly inadequate. The speed at which malware variants are being released is increasingly outpacing mitigation measures being adopted by organizations. Ransomware – such as the current WannaCry attacks - demonstrates the need to be a step ahead in the race.
