Threat of Cyber, Ransomware Attacks Remains
In the past, it was assumed that only individuals and corporations—and for that matter mostly just larger international companies—were at risk for cyberattacks. Individuals have fallen victim, as we have seen from time to time, to credit card infiltrations. And companies have been targets because they possess business development, industry secrets, or other innovations they wanted to keep hidden from competitors or other intruders. But, the threat from cyberattacks is no longer just a matter of high-level corporate or international government espionage. Cybersecurity is—and is expected to remain—a concern for U.S. state and local governments, education institutions, health care providers, and other infrastructure assets.
