Re: Ransom ware attack of life support operations should be a capital offence!
Having a backup is not the point here, emergrncy life saving operations were impacted, lives were at stake. Sorting out in 3 hours though excellent, has nothing to do with the deterent of a rightous public beheading for a monstous crime. We need laws to allow capitol punishment for this kind of targeted attack, Stealing from a poorly secured bank is not the same, doing this requires blood. A few heads on pikes are needed

DO these hospials and cities HAVE a backup and disaster recovery protocol? Really good question, they should have a BC/DR plan.

Re: Ransom ware attack of life support operations should be a capital offence!
IT stories often forget that REAL PEOPLE are impacted. This is true. I think that is the main results of most attacts, system are down and stress is high.

Ransom ware attack of life support operations should be a capital offence! That makes sense. Many other attacks also threaten the life of individuals.

second layer?
Interesting, how good is the second layer if first layer is already preventing them to provide ER service? I think they need to check see if the layers are good enough for them.

Re: Ransom ware attack of life support operations should be a capital offence!
And AGAIN ----- What if this was JUST a server failure?  Drive failure?  I had a bad block wipe out an entire server in a medical office I supported and GUESS WHAT ---- I had a tested backup and restore plan.  Now this was a small office, no comparison but I had everything UP and running without flaw in 3 hours.  True.    I had a 501C3 account hit by Cryptolocker in 2014 and I had everything up and running in, likewise, 3 hours with only a single desktop displa (the actual desktop itself) unrecoveable because I did not know the executive director was using it.  98% restoration across he board.  DO these hospials and cities HAVE a backup and disaster recovery protocol?  From what I can almost nobody has one.  Nor do they test because a 2:30 am, nobody is thinking sraight.

Sheesh I hate writing this time and time again.  Yes exfiltration of data is bad but take that OUT of the equation and this is jus a server or workstation issue pure and simple.

Re: Ransom ware attack of life support operations should be a capital offence!
Agree - IT stories often forget that REAL PEOPLE are impacted.  IBM failures on multiple financial systems, the CSC disaster at National Health Service in England - all impact people profoundly.  And yet we write essay after essay here as if IT exists in a bubble.
