Any company is vulnerable to a ransomware attack so long as the hackers know what they’re doing, but there are some types of businesses you expect to be better prepared for such an attack than others. A big-name computer company, for example, should be able to head off such an attack with virtual ease. Failing to do so would be a public relations disaster. Suppose a well-known, big-brand computer company were to suffer a ransomware attack. In that case, it might as well advertise to its customers that it isn’t capable of safeguarding its software or equipment. It would be the ultimate nightmare scenario for a tech company – and Acer is living through that nightmare right now.
