Ransomware is top modern security threat


According to Lindy Cameron, the head of the UK’s National Cyber Security Centre, the threat of cyber-attacks is one of the gravest of the modern era. Cameron described cyber attacks as the “primary key threat” facing the UK. The threat is applicable to “citizens, businesses and critical national infrastructure” said Cameron, and a more cohesive national effort is needed to fight ransomware in particular. Ransomware has become hugely profitable for many criminal gangs, who target organisations knowing that they may pay huge ransoms in order to avoid service downtime, leaked sensitive data, or information loss.
