WannaCry ransomware was the biggest challenge of the year, says cybersecurity centre

The WannaCry ransomware attack was the biggest test of the year for the UK’s new cybersecurity body. The National Cyber Security Centre’s (NCSC) annual review marks a year since it started work, although it was officially opened in February. In those 12 months, the NCSC says 1,131 cyber incidents have been reported to it. Of those, 590 were classed as significant cyber attacks, ranging from attacks on National Health Service hospitals and the Houses of Parliament, through to attacks on businesses.
