Cyberwarfare v.s. Ransomware: Visibility and Control in Healthcare

Isolate, Profile and Secure with Agentless Segmentation

What is the impact of the Russian-Ukraine Cyberwarfare?

A cyber analysis released on Wednesday by intelligence agencies in the United Kingdom and the US blamed malicious new malware on an infamous Russia-backed hacking organization. The National Cyber Security Centre in the UK and US organizations like the National Security Agency collaborated on the study. They were warned by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) that the organization, Sandworm, has developed a new form of malware known as Cyclops Blink, which targets firewall hardware manufactured by WatchGuard to defend PCs from hacking.

What are the consequences of the Russian-Ukrainian Cyber War?

Entities in the healthcare and public health sectors should be proactive in monitoring for and guarding against wiper malware and assaults from Russian-linked threat groups. Security researchers have discovered a number of HermeticWiper and WhisperGate Ransomware variants in the wild, and the American Hospital Association instructed healthcare organizations to consult with security providers to better understand the threat and its consequences. In the event of a ransomware attack, these resources contain recommended defensive, mitigation, and recovery measures, as well as indicators of compromise.
