In June, I wrote about how the ransomware threat was evolving and what it really cost victims to recover, regardless of whether they pay the ransom or not. Two months and several high-profile multi-million dollar attacks later, including the likes of Garmin and Carlson Wagonlit, it’s worth wondering why it is that ransomware continues to succeed against what are often well-defended organisations, and is there anything we can do about it?
Many carriers around the world raced last year to be the ‘first’ to launch 5G; those networks were built upon the foundation of 4G networks in a type of 5G mode called non-standalone (NSA).
