60 Minutes and 9-1-1

You may have watched the interview last night on 60 Minutes. The former head of the FBI Cyber Crime Unit, Mike Christman, was interviewed on the topic of Ransomware.

Scott Pelley made the statement “you’re waiting for the day that somebody says we have the 9-1-1 system of a major city held hostage and we need 10 million dollars today”. Mike’s response: ” I hope that day never comes but I think that we should prepare for that possibility”.

Let’s be careful out there..
