Global Cyber Attack – Ransomware

Our outreach activities and our letters of complaint have consistently raised the risk of cyber crime. For example, our “Notice of Non-Consent for “Smart” Meter Installation, Notice of Liability” includes citations to important literature, see here.

Sadly, the latest cyber attack on 12 May 2017 was a global incident and hit not just the UK (for example, the NHS) but also around the world, see here and here.
