The DoD warns healthcare to be ready for an imminent cyberattack. Experts share tactics to protect against a harmful ransomware.
Healthcare IT experts recommend making these changes to your cybersecurity plan in order to stay ahead of the changes in policy and worsening cybercrime.
I recently announced that I had accepted the role of VP of Sales for CyberMaxx, an exciting player in the MSSP/MDR space. I've been involved with cybersecurity for over 15 years and networking before that for almost as long. During that time, I have met and worked with many great people and wanted to share my thoughts about why I made the decision.
During late afternoon Wednesday, October 28th several federal agencies, including HHS and the FBI, issued a joint cybersecurity advisory that cited "credible information of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers." The advisory warned of Russian criminal groups targeting American hospitals with Ryuk ransomware. The threat advisory is consistent with attack activity observed by CyberMaxx over the past weeks. All indicators point to an uptick in ransomware attacks targeting healthcare providers. The attacks also coincide with a nation-wide surge in COVID-19 cases.
