The Week in Ransomware – October 1st 2021 – “This was preventable”

This week comes with reports on a hospital ransomware attack that led to the death of a baby and new efforts by governments worldwide to combat ransomware.

This week, the biggest news is President Biden announcing a partnership between the USA and thirty other countries to disrupt global ransomware attacks.

A heartbreaking report by the Wall Street Journal about a ransomware attack leading to the death of a baby also illustrates how dangerous these attacks can be for health care.
