"And we've got to make sure at a departmental level, government level, departmental heads. that they're taking the necessary steps", he told Sky News.
"This is absolutely a wakeup call", he said.
In England, 48 NHS trusts reported problems at hospitals, GP surgeries or pharmacies, and 13 NHS organisations in Scotland were also affected.
The attack therefore spread faster than previous, smaller-scale ransomware attacks.

LONDON - Health Secretary Jeremy Hunt was warned in July past year of the urgent need to update the NHS' cybersecurity in order to avoid the sort of crippling cyberattack seen in British hospitals last week.
A divert remained in place for trauma, stroke and urgent heart attack treatment, where diagnostic services are required, at the Lister Hospital, part of East and North Hertfordshire NHS Trust (Midlands & East).
The cyber attacks use "ransomware" which locks up systems and their data, demanding payment before they are unlocked.
The ransomware exploits a flaw in Microsoft's Server Message Block (SMB) v1 file sharing protocol to carry out its attack. The NHS is a massive target for cyber-attacks and now, it is a poorly defended target.
The European policing agency's director Rob Wainwright said: "We've never seen anything like this".
But no new large-scale outbreaks were reported, and British officials said a feared second wave of infections had not materialized.
The NHS says it employs more than 1.5 million people, making it one of the world's biggest employers alongside the U.S. Department of Defence, Walmart and the Chinese army.
Fallon told the BBC's Andrew Marr Show: "I can assure you that the nuclear deterrent is fully protected".
