    23 May 2017.

Nevertheless, it indicated widespread vulnerability to threats from outlier states and non-state actors, which pose the greatest risks to cyber security. While governments and industry should adopt a more systematic and anticipatory approach to minimising such threats, they are unlikely to treat the attack as a major wake-up call.
