In May, cyber-security professionals warned that a repeat “WannaCry” ransomware hack could be launched. 

In June, Petya hit the Ukraine and damaged major businesses in other countries. The result was serious business disruption and financial costs to major industrial and pharamceutical companies.

However, amongst the warnings that organisations improve their data security, there was a risk of overlooking high-speed data network vulnerabilities and underestimating other types of cyber-attack.
