The DoD warns healthcare to be ready for an imminent cyberattack. Experts share tactics to protect against a harmful ransomware.
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.

HIPAA’s blessing is also a curse. It’s specifically designed to be flexible, which allows its requirements to apply to organizations of all sizes—from single-physician practices to national healthcare chains. But, that flexibility means HIPAA requirements can be purposely ambiguous.
When you hear the term ‘healthcare cybersecurity,’ your mind probably thinks of data and computers and all of the hackers and malware that are trying to corrupt networks across the globe.
