A New Strain of Ransomware Targets U.S. and Canada

According to Datto, a new strain of ransomware known as Ryuk is targeting specific organizations across the United States and Canada. So far, four Canadian healthcare organizations and The Onslow Water and Sewer Authority in North Carolina have been attacked.

Ransomware can be particularly frustrating to organizations because sometimes, even if the ransom is paid, data is returned damaged beyond repair, which is why it is important to have a disaster recovery plan in place.
