4 tips to make use of Wannacry in awareness programs
Wannacry and NotPetya are two recent security events that also became top news stories. I would say that these serve as wake up calls, but the reality is that we have had wake-up calls before, and people hit the snooze button.
In the past we had incidents like Heartbleed, Chernobyl and I Love You that all became household names. You would think that people would have become aware of the importance of anti-malware and patching systems. And then there were the major data breaches, like Target and OPM, which should have created improvements in overall security programs. Clearly, though, Wannacry and NotPetya have proven that lessons have gone unlearned.
