The cybersecurity world is still feeling the effects of the 2017 WannaCry ransomware attack today. While the majority of the damage occurred in the weeks after May 12, 2017, WannaCry ransomware attacks actually increased 53% from January 2021 to March 2021.
While researching my in-depth article WannaCry: How the Widespread Ransomware Changed Cybersecurity, I learned that WannaCry attacks are still found today. Even so, I was surprised that it is still such an active issue. So, what has happened since then? What are these attackers doing today? How have organizations responded to these threats? And will an attack like this happen again?
