HOUSE JOINT RESOLUTION 59
2 WHEREAS, In May of 2017, the world witnessed a coordinated
3global cyberattack known as WannaCry; it was one of the largest
4cyberattacks ever, impacting over 150 countries and infecting
5more than 250,000 computers and devices; and
6 WHEREAS, WannaCry is a type of malicious software (malware)
7classified as ransomware; it encrypts essential files on a
8Windows device and requires that you pay a ransom to unlock
9those files; and
10 WHEREAS, Although WannaCry was focused on organizations
11and businesses; it was unique in that it was not targeted at
12any one industry or region, and it used malware that can move
13through a corporate network from a single entry point; and
14 WHEREAS, For organizations that have older equipment or
15legacy software, such as hospitals, manufacturing plants, and
16power plants, deploying a patch to fix a malware vulnerability
17can be complicated and disruptive; power plants (coal, nuclear,
18and renewables) provide virtually all of the power needs for
19almost 13 million Illinoisans; and
20 WHEREAS, Cyberattacks are an increasing concern for the
21Illinois power grid as a widespread outage could cause
