Honda isn't alone in facing these challenges -- according to Reuters, competitors Nissan and Renault also stopped production at plants in Japan, Britain, France, Romania and India last month due to WannaCry attacks.  

This attack should serve as a reminder that even if your business wasn't hit during the initial WannaCry outbreak, you may well still be vulnerable.
