Hacks, ransomware and data privacy dominated cybersecurity in 2021

Throughout 2021, Cyberattacks/ Ransomware dominated the headlines. They cause massive disruptions to government institutions, large enterprises, and even supply chains for critical products like fuel and meat. The year began on a poor note in terms of security. In January, the FBI, the National Security Agency, and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency all suspected that Russia was behind an attack on SolarWinds, a Texas-based firm whose software was used by everyone from the federal government to railways, hospitals, and large tech firms.
