At least 20 local governments have been struck with coordinated ransomware attacks.
State officials have stood up the Emergency Operations Center to coordinate response efforts of InfoSec teams and identify additional communities impacted by this campaign.
This is the largest attack seen against a specific geographical area, however this summer many cities and counties in the southern US have found themselves the victims of such extortion attacks.
Everything truly is bigger in The Lone Star State.
