It has been two years since the Colonial Pipeline attack, but ransomware attacks on critical infrastructure continue to be a major threat. A recent report reveals that US critical infrastructure remains as vulnerable as ever to ransomware attacks. With the potential to cause significant damage, business owners must take steps to protect their operations from these malicious attacks.
The Colonial Pipeline attack in 2021 was a wake-up call for businesses and organizations worldwide. Cybercriminals infiltrated the pipeline's IT systems and demanded a ransom payment of $4.4 million to release control. This incident disrupted fuel supplies in the US and highlighted the severity of ransomware attacks.
Despite the increase in awareness, ransomware attacks continue to plague businesses and critical infrastructure. According to the report, many critical infrastructure organizations still rely on outdated and vulnerable IT systems, making them easy targets for cybercriminals.
