Despite the widespread media attention and panic that WannaCry inspired, nearly half (49%) of infosec professionals say they worked just as frantically in the past year responding to incidents that the public has never heard of, according to a new survey by FarSight.
Of those 49 percent, 72 percent said they've had at least three such occasions in the past year alone. Twenty percent said they have experienced six occasions.
"WannaCry made the headlines and got the general public listening," said Dr. Paul Vixie, CEO and Cofounder of Farsight Security, in a statement, "however, cybersecurity professionals actually work on incidents like this all throughout the year."
The survey was conducted at the InfoSecurity Europe 2017 conference earlier this month.
