UK critical national infrastructure at risk of ransom attacks

July 7, 2022

Smart Cities World, a forum focused on smart city trends, reported in late June 2022, that "more than three-fifths of cyber leaders in critical national infrastructure organisations do not have a decision-making plan in place on whether to pay the ransom in the case of an attack."

This is particularly concerning, as research shows that an increasing proportion of firms and their leadership believe that "ransomware will significantly disrupt their operations in the next 12 months."
