Ransomware is a remote, digital shakedown. It is disruptive and expensive, and it affects organizations of all sizes and in many industries. Government, however, faces greater risks and impact. Infections have shut down entire operations, forcing law enforcement agencies to drop cases and hospitals to turn away patients. But there may be a silver lining. Focusing defensive efforts in key areas and with practiced response planning may allow organizations to stop ransomware before it is deployed.
