That seems like a bit of c&p blurb, but also says that the "industry has already shifted .... " >> ..... and is still getting bugged !! Hence I asked ... "how can you be sure that ECSC can do any better?"

The company was founded in 2000 and provides managed services, incident response, PCI DSS and ISO 27001 consultancy. It is one the UK’s longest running full service information and cyber security service provider with many international clients. The industry has already shifted from a defend/protect model to a detect/respond model. The old way used to be build walls and moats, protect everything. ECSC is at the forefront and with the industry worth $1 trillion between 2017 and 2021 ECSC will grow at a massive pace.

Seems we have some experts on cyberattacks! My question to you is ... If such big companies and organisations, who no doubt have their own sophisticated security agents to protect them, have been held ransom, how can you be sure that ECSC can do any better? TIA.

Companies across the globe are reporting that they have been struck by a major ransomware cyber-attack. British advertising agency WPP is among those to say its IT systems have been disrupted as a consequence. The virus, the source of which is not yet known, freezes the user's computer and demands an untraceable ransom be paid in the digital Bitcoin currency. Ukrainian firms, including the state power company and Kiev's main airport, were among the first to report issues. The Chernobyl nuclear power plant has also had to monitor radiation levels manually after its Windows-based sensors were shut down. Interpol involvement In a statement, the US National Security Council said government agencies were investigating the attack and that the US was "determined to hold those responsible accountable". The US Department of Homeland Security advised victims not to pay the ransom, saying there was no guarantee that access to files would be restored. The Russian anti-virus firm Kaspersky Lab said its analysis showed that there had been about 2,000 attacks - most in Ukraine, Russia and Poland. Media captionWhat is ransomware? The international police organisation Interpol has said it was "closely monitoring" the situation and liaising with its member countries. Experts suggest the malware is taking advantage of the same weaknesses used by the WannaCry attack last month. "It initially appeared to be a variant of a piece of ransomware that emerged last year," said computer scientist Prof Alan Woodward. "The ransomware was called Petya and the updated version Petrwrap. "However, now that's not so clear." The malware hall of fame What can you do to protect your business? Kaspersky Lab reported that it believed the malware was a "new ransomware that has not been seen before" despite its resemblance to Petya. As a result, the firm has dubbed it NotPetya. Kaspersky added that it had detected suspected attacks in Poland, Italy, Germany, France and the US in addition to the UK, Russia and Ukraine. Andrei Barysevich, a spokesman for security firm Recorded Future, told the BBC such attacks would not stop because cyber-thieves found them too lucrative. "A South Korean hosting firm just paid $1m to get their data back and that's a huge incentive," he said. "It's the biggest incentive you could offer to a cyber-criminal." A bitcoin wallet associated with the outbreak has received several payments since the outbreak began. The wallet currently holds just over 3.5 bitcoins (£6,775; $8,670). Cyber-attack: Is my computer at risk? WannaCry: Your questions answered An email address associated with the blackmail attempt has been blocked by German independent email provider Posteo. It means that the blackmailers have not been able to access the mailbox. Problems have also affected: the aircraft manufacturer Antonov, and two postal services Russia's biggest oil producer, Rosneft Danish shipping company Maersk, including its container shipping, oil, gas and drilling operations. A port in Mumbai is among those that has halted operations a Pennsylvania hospital operator, Heritage Valley Health System, which reported its computer network was down, causing operations to be delayed - but it is not yet clear if it was subject to the same type of attack Spanish food giant Mondelez - whose brands include Oreo and Toblerone - according to the country's media. A Cadbury factory in Tasmania, Australia is affected Netherlands-based shipping company TNT, which said some of its systems needed "remediation" French construction materials company St Gobain US pharmaceuticals-maker Merck The local offices of the law firm DLA Piper - a sign in the firm's Washington DC office said: "Please remove all laptops from docking stations and keep turned off - no exceptions." The attacks come two months after another global ransomware assault, known as WannaCry, which caused major problems for the UK's National Health Service. Veteran security expert Chris Wysopal from Veracode said the malware seemed to be spreading via some of the same Windows code loopholes exploited by WannaCry. Many firms did not patch those holes because WannaCry was tackled so quickly, he added. NCA tweet reads: Image copyrightTWITTER/@NCA_UK Image caption The UK's National Crime Agency is investigating the threat Those being caught out were also industrial firms that often struggled to apply software patches quickly. "These organisations typically have a challenge patching all of their machines because so many systems cannot have down time," he said. "Airports also have this challenge." Ukraine's deputy prime minister tweets a photo appearing to show government systems being affected, with the caption Image copyrightTWITTER/@ROZENKOPAVLO Ukraine seems to have been particularly badly hit this time round. Reports suggest that the Kiev metro system has stopped accepting payment cards while several chains of petrol stations have suspended operations. Ukraine's deputy prime minister has tweeted a picture appearing to show government systems have been affected. His caption reads: "Ta-daaa! Network is down at the Cabinet of Minister's secretariat."

Maersk hit by cyber attack With a fleet of more than 600 container vessels, Maersk is the world's biggest shipping company with a market share of around 16 per cent. The company handles around 25 per cent of all containers shipped on the key Asia-Europe route. Maersk's port operator APM Terminals was also hit, with Dutch broadcaster RTV Rijnmond reporting that 17 shipping container terminals run by APM Terminals had been hacked, including two in Rotterdam and 15 in other parts of the world. hTTps://thewest.com.au/news/crime/shipping-giant-maersk-downed-by-virus-ng-s-1742390

Petya cyber attack: What's going on with the latest ransomware virus? By Jessica Haynes Updated about an hour ago Hacker generic image PHOTO: The Petya cyber attack is expected to hit Australia. (AAP: Dave Hunt) RELATED STORY: Global ransomware attack affects Australian workersRELATED STORY: So you've been hacked. Here's what to do nextRELATED STORY: 'Biggest ransomware outbreak in history' hits nearly 100 countriesRELATED STORY: A cyber attack could cause the next global financial crisis MAP: European Union A massive ransomware attack has hit computers and servers across the globe causing turmoil in its path. Could you be affected? Here's what we know so far. How did it start? The attack first shut down operations in Russia — including at Russia's biggest oil company — and Ukraine before spreading to computers in Romania, the Netherlands, Norway, France, Spain, and Britain. In a matter of hours, the attack had gone global, hitting the US and India. Now, it's also understood some businesses in Australia — including the Cadbury chocolate factory in Hobart — are also affected. Key points: The attack first shut down operations in Russia and Ukraine before going global Experts are scrambling to determine the scope and impact of the attacks It is believed the latest attack might be a ransomware virus called Petya How does it work? It's believed the latest attack might be a ransomware virus called Petya and hidden in an innocuous document sent through email. It freezes a user's computer until a "ransom" is paid in virtual currency bitcoin. The director of the Australian Centre for Cyber Security at UNSW, Professor Jill Slay, said the attack seemed to be in Europe, Russia and reaching the US. "It spreads apparently by having a 'bad' instruction — like a small piece of computer code — hidden inside a Word or PDF document," Professor Slay said. "This bad instruction attacks a Windows operating system basically taking over a computer — in this case it seizes the files and encrypts them and then the bad guys ask for money to decrypt — this means you cannot open or read your own files." It's also been suggested to have used the same tactics as the Wannacry attack last month.

The potential turn I was alluding to earlier is the apex of the two main upper and lower trend-lines, which falls between 27/28 June 2017. Uncanny. It is also 15 sessions since the last downtrend completed on 6/6/17. The chart shows a cycle, each of 15 sessions long on three previous occasions.
