With the latest and most devastated ransomware attack in history, ‘Wannacry’ security experts are saying that cybersecurity could be a threat to our interconnected future if not taken care of on time.
Wannacry took down more than 200,000 machines around the world and the next attack could be anywhere in the future. What’s even worst is that big organizations are not prepared to face another attack on such a large scale.
Wannacry ransomware is also capable of taking over things that are connected to the internet of things. This means that any appliance in your house connected to the internet can be taken over and locked by a cyber criminal.
For now protecting your systems is the first priority which can only be done by making yourself aware of cyber security and following the many guidelines it provides to prevent a future attack.
