Too Long; Didn't Read

The recent attack on a U.S. pipeline impacting almost half the fuel on the East Coast, is confirmation that the acceleration in sophisticated ransomware attacks is continuing. Ransomware attacks are often easy for cyber criminals to orchestrate and largely profitable. The attacks have huge implications not only on businesses, but also on communities, cities, states and entire countries. Cyber criminals can breach the network by getting some unsuspecting employee working from home to click on an email, then searching the internal network for a critical enterprise device to hold for ransom.
