Ransomware outbreak hits Norwegian ‘computers’

Phil Neray .. told The Register that it was inevitable hackers would look to get ransomware onto networks at manufacturing and power giants, given how valuable system uptime is in those environments

Then why not connect your valuable system environments using VPNs runing on read-only embedded hardware. If you don't know how to do that then maybe you're not tempermentally suitable for a career in IT.
