Ransomware Disables Physical Security

Last week, multi-national physical security firm, Prosegur, lost control of its network to Ryuk Ransomware.

Prosegur's worldwide IT network was reportedly shut down and its employees were sent home

Ryuk is a virulent strand of ransomware wreaking havoc on businesses large and small. The attack typically starts with a broad-based Phishing campaign.

"Customers are reporting on Twitter that alarms are not working."

In the past, Ransomware costs have focused solely on the ransom demanded. In this case, the company's physical security customers have been put at risk.

The digital and physical worlds are colliding, vaulting cyber security to top-of-mind in the C-suite.
