'Petya' National And Global Ransomware Attack: How It Affects Locals

National and International companies have been paralyzed and majorly affected for the second time within two months. There are measures that companies can take to ensure this does not happen to them.
GEORGETOWN, Texas - June 29, 2017 - PRLog -- A ransomware attack known as "Petya" has caused significant turmoil to many businesses both nationally and internationally. The malevolent software company has spread to organizations such as the food company- Mondelez, legal firm- DLA Piper and Danish, and shipping and transport firm- Maersk. The program is causing systems and networks to lock up and ultimately putting a halt to production.

Occurring within weeks of another major cyber-attack, WannaCry, companies are becoming crippled as a result of both events. 'Petya' spreads in networks using Microsoft Windows. There are protections that business owners and operators can take to ensure cyber-attacks such as these are prevented from the operations end of a business.

"Companies can easily protect their critical data, employee productivity and reputation by taking fundamental, best practice steps today. Cyberthreats like Petya travel the globe in the blink of an eye. Organizations that have properly designed and managed IT infrastructures don't even notice. CTTS recommends that all business owners make it a priority to protect their business and livelihood from the next cyber-attack that threatens the function of their business.", Josh Wilmoth, CEO
