How do you keep your communication flow during a cyber attack? The recent cyber attacks in hospitals are raising many questions about safety and security within many organizations.
The recent surge in cyber attacks targeting hospitals and other organizations has raised serious concerns about safety and security. According to CNN, the prevalence of ransomware is on the rise, with the FBI receiving 2,453 complaints about ransomware incidents in the past year alone, resulting in victims losing over $24 million dollars. Incident response teams are grappling with an alarming rate of 3-4 ransomware incidents per week, as reported by CSO Online. These incidents are not only more frequent but also more costly, often leaving organizations with no viable alternative but to consider paying the ransom.
Cybercriminals employ various tactics, including 'man in the middle' attacks, to infiltrate systems, lock them down, and demand ransoms for decryption keys. They typically demand payments in cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin (XBT) because of the inherent difficulty in tracing these transactions to real individuals. Many of these hackers operate from offshore locations, making the prospects of recovering funds or apprehending them nearly impossible.
