Tourists aren’t the only ones looking at Florida this summer. As the Sunshine State ramps up to greet a flock of vacationers, it’s also facing some far less welcome visitors.
Over the last few weeks, cybercriminals have targeted Florida with advanced ransomware attacks requesting heavy payments in return for restoring data. In one example, the city of Riviera Beach agreed to pay over $600,000 in ransom after its systems were crippled.
Of course, ransomware attacks aren’t limited to Florida and are now commonplace across the globe as cybercriminals continue to evolve their techniques.
