“Cybersecurity isn’t a hypothetical problem – today shows it can be life or death.”

U.S. Senator Ben Sasse, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, issued the following statement regarding the ongoing ransomware attacks in Europe and Asia. 

“This is big: around the world, doctors and nurses are scrambling to treat patients without their digital records or prescription dosages, ambulances are being rerouted, and millions of people’s data is potentially exposed. Cybersecurity isn’t a hypothetical problem – today shows it can be life or death. We’ll likely look back at this as a watershed moment.”
