Unfortunately, last year we were hit with ransomware.  All critical systems were encrypted and paid to have the key to unlock the encryption.

Ransomware is fairly straightforward to stop, I know how to do it if anyone is curious. It comes down to the way networks are designed and haven't changed in decades. Once an attacker is in it's too late, networks are designed to allow the attacker to easily move around. ACLs, firewall rules, etc. are not enough to solve the problem. Most tools are just improvements to old tools which does not protect us.

Never been impacted by ransomware but are taking steps to defend against the proliferation of the attack.
