1. Ransomware Running Amok

Ransomware has crippled the workflows of municipalities across America in 2019, with major cities such as Baltimore, Atlanta, and Albany, New York among the victims of these cyberattacks. However, things have really heated up this summer, as more than 20 towns in one state alone had their computer systems taken hostage in August. Authorities believe a single source is responsible for a coordinated ransomware attack that targeted 22 local governments in the state of Texas, demanding they pay ransoms of hundreds of thousands of dollars to restore access to their computer systems.
