According to Nick FitzGerald, senior research fellow at ESET, the WannaCry ransomware attacks were something of a surprise, catching organisations off-guard. Further, they had highlighted a shortfall in cyber security measures across many sectors, from SMBs to enterprise and even government agencies.
“IT security folk, in particular, have been placed under pressure to prepare reactive warning mechanisms for untrained staff to continually be wary of unexpected email messages, especially if they contain in any way ‘unusual’ or unexpected attachments, or try to entice the reader to click on a link.
Between July 2015 and June 2016, Australia’s national computer emergency response team (CERT) responded to 14,804 cyber security incidents affecting Australian businesses, 418 of which involved systems of national interest and critical infrastructure.
