“The international WannaCry cyberattack caused alarm across the corporate world by spreading ransomware, a type of malicious software that seizes data and demands a ransom for its release.

In this special report, the WSJ Pro Cybersecurity team examines the risks thrown into relief by the attack and how companies can address them. These articles, mostly taken from our daily newsletter, look at where ransomware attacks are being targeted, the remaining vulnerabilities companies face, the reputation and compliance risks involved, and other important issues.”
