Petya/GoldenEye Cyber-Attack Drives New Focus on Cyber Resilience

Petya/GoldenEye, the latest global ransomware cyber-attack, has hit major government agencies and operations in the Ukraine and Russia and netted companies in many industries worldwide. In many cases, the attack shut down operations for hours and even days, causing significant business interruption and disruption. While similar to WannaCry in some respects, the Petya/GoldenEye attack demonstrates that more virulent malware can be unleashed with little effort on specific targets and innocent bystanders, with consequences for all.
