Royal Dutch Shell: Oil Company
Risk to Small Business: 1.863 = Severe
The Clop ransomware gang is going to need a vacation after this week. They also struck gold at Royal Dutch Shell, scooping up an assortment of business documents and posting a sample on their leak site. Once again, the gangs foray into Accellion paid off, enabling them to gain access to Royal Dutch Shell. Spokesmen for the company admit that data was stolen but are not saying that this was a ransomware hit, although that is this gang’s stock in trade.
Individual Risk: No sensitive personal or financial information was announced as compromised in this incident, but the investigation is ongoing.
Customers Impacted: Unknown
How it Could Affect Your Customers’ Business: Ransomware can cause catastrophic delays in production, crippling factories. Preventing it from hitting systems is just as important as protecting data.
