A quick look at the results of the recently released results of the Fortinet 2021 State of Operational Technology and Cybersecurity Report, nine out of 10 organizations experienced at least one intrusion in the past year and 63% had three or more intrusions. Digging deeper, the most common intrusions were malware at 57% and phishing at 58%, which was up from 43% last year. However, ransomware, in particular, is especially concerning, in part because the attacks continue to surface. Case in point? Since the Colonial Pipeline and the JBS Foods attacks, there have been a few meaningful and disturbing attacks. Fujifilm attack The Japanese multinational conglomerate acknowledged unauthorized access, and is investigating a suspected ransomware attack, forcing the organization to shut down portions of its global network to prevent the attack’s spread. According to Pravin Madhani, CEO and co-founder of K2 Cyber Security, “This latest attack on Fujifilm adds to the many ransomware attacks we’re seeing in the news. We know the frequency of ransomware doubled last year, according to the most recent Verizon Breach Incident Report. Most enterprises cannot operate without a connection to the internet; the shutdown of the network at Fujifilm shows how hard it is to operate in today’s connected world without a network connection,” said Madhani.
