IT giant Cognizant has reportedly been hit by a ransomware attack. This has resulted in disruption to the services provided to some of its clients. Cognizant has about 2 lakh employees in India. Cognizant has been providing information to its clients from time to time and providing them with secure technology.
Cognizant has made it clear that its internal security teams, linked to leading cybersecurity agencies, are actively working to prevent the attack. Ransomware prevents clients from accessing their computer system and data. In order to be used, the aggressors demand payment. Cognizant is also preparing for legal action.
