Ransomware Hackers Targeting Smaller Critical Infrastructure
Ransomware hackers are targeting all levels of critical infrastructure from big to small. CISA wants organizations to prevent zero-day events.
According to Nextgov, since the large-scale ransomware hacks of the Colonial Oil Pipeline and North American branches of JBS Foods in 2021, federal agencies have doubled down on preventing future attacks on the nation’s critical infrastructures.
Leadership at the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, however, confirmed that ransomware hackers are not exclusively targeting large organizations and businesses, but smaller entities as well.
