Timely Talk About IT Security – Wannacry!

By now, I'm just going to assume that most, if not all, of you have at least heard something about the Wannacry! Ransomware.

It’s been all over the news and many of my colleagues and clients have been asking me about it. Unfortunately, I have to deliver some bad news – these kinds of threats are going to continue to be more frequent. They're even getting cooler names from the individuals or groups disseminating them, so the media promotes them more, too...the jury's still out on whether that's a good thing, or a bad thing.

While widespread awareness can help slow the spread of bugs like this, it can also inspire copycat attacks from others who want their 15 minutes in the limelight. However, the thing the media's definitely not talking about enough is the fact that this could have been prevented if people simply took proper preventative care of their networks. 

Were you covered for the Wannacry attack? Are you sure or How do you know? Who do you call to get answers about something like this?
