You’ve probably heard about the massive ransomware attack that caught tens of thousands of computers unaware. WannaCry/WCry 2.0 took the data of its victims hostage, demanding bitcoins as ransom. While we’ve seen attacks like this from other malicious programs, including viruses, malware, and trojans, this time it was on a global scale. While it affected most industries, this was particularly bad for companies managing sensitive patient and financial data.
