Colonial Pipeline has confirmed it paid a $4.4m (£3.1m) ransom, according to BBC.

Earlier this month, Hugh has written about it in this article: The Colonial Pipeline Ransomware Attack: Preventing the Next Cybercrime Disruption of Critical Infrastructure

Lessons from the Colonial Pipeline ransomware attack

Dear community, let's share your professional opinion with other peers on what lessons can we learn from this ransomware attack.

Should the incident response be managed in a different way?

Thanks
