WannaCry: One Month Later

It has been about a month since the WannaCry outbreak, so you would think the impact of it would be virtually gone. Just because the mainstream news doesn’t cover it or other ransomware attacks, doesn’t mean organizations and businesses are fighting every day against cybersecurity attacks.

One such example: a Honda production plant in Japan. Some older computers – or endpoints – weren’t taken into account and got infected. Out of sight, out of mind. All it takes is one exposed endpoints to compromise a network. In Honda’s case, it took two days to restore the plant production.

Honda, of course, is not alone.
