NATO chief Jens Stoltenberg warned the alliance must step up its defence against cyberattacks, saying they could potentially trigger their Article 5 mutual defence commitment.
Computer users around the world were scrambling Wednesday to reboot systems after a tidal wave of ransomware cyberattacks spread from Ukraine and Russia across Europe to the United States and then on to Asia.
It seemed to be very similar to the WannaCry ransomware which hit more than 200,000 users in more than 150 countries last month.
Stoltenberg said the “attack in May and this week just underlines the importance of strengthening our cyber defences and that is what we are doing.”
