Beginning on Friday, May 12, 2017, organizations across the world were hit by a cyberattack called WannaCry. This malware—a type of ransomware—operates by encrypting an organization’s data and demanding a Bitcoin payment (nearly $300 per attack) before it will restore the affected files. So far approximately 200,000 computers in over 150 countries have been impacted, making this the largest international ransomware attack to date.
