The Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission (PTC) has installed video cameras as part of its most recent modernization efforts that replaced analog roadside cameras used to monitor traffic flow and conditions.
Healthcare businesses are already reeling from massive losses during the pandemic, and cyberattacks could cause further long-term damage beyond the initial attack.

In many organizations the answer is not clear, which can lead to missteps in detecting, defending against, and responding to cyberattacks.
