Windows and small businesses continue to remain the biggest ransomware targets

Benjamin Roussey of TechGenix has an informative article from April 2019 of the seven top ranswomware threats in the next year or so, link here

He writes that small and medium sized businesses are still the easiest targets.  He notes that many still run on older versions of Windows. Many are not diligent in keeping up patches (individuals tend to do better than small companies).

He also notes that Windows is still much more vulnerable in practice than Linux or the similar Mac OS family.

Health care and doctors or PPO’s have become particularly vulnerable.
He also makes an interesting comment about AI.
