WannaCry is a pretty hard cyber attack which based on a hack from NSA. At the point the attack started almost nothing could prevent it.
Luckly there was a kill switch in the code. A Website which stops the spread and also Microsoft released a bugfix.


But in general there are some tips which helps to prevent cyber attacks. But mostly its that you need a good admin which informs himself and close the insecure holes fast, keep the systems up-to-date and block insecure content.
Most important is to have multiple backups, so in the worst case every important stuff can be reseted at least to 1 day before.
Also 3rd-party services can help, for example this website runs on cloudflare which prevents the ddos attacks from shutdown the website.

But 100% security doesn't exsits.


BTW: I think this was a nice wakeup-call for the million dollar companies that still runs old windows systems :mrgreen:
