Ransomware Goes Mainstream (CBS)

Big Media is jumping on the cyber crime storyline. And for good reason!

Ransomware attacks are taking a growing toll on government agencies, hospitals and many other organizations.

The story details some of this year's biggest incident's, including public school closures and delayed surgeries at compromised hospitals.

In a case last month in Wyoming, a county health center canceled some surgeries after its systems were held hostage.

The costs of these attacks far surpass the financial ransom demand.

An Arizona school district shut its schools for at least two days in early September after its systems were hit by ransomware.

For those averse to reading, the article's video does a great job detailing the risks to governments and private enterprises.

INFIMA is honored to support and protect many of our country's local governments and small and medium-sized businesses.
