FBI Warning Healthcare Providers to Prepare for Ransomware Attacks
Author: Maryam M. MesehaDate: December 1, 2020
The Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) is warning hospitals and healthcare providers to brace for a deluge of ransomware attacks. The advisory, which was issued jointly with the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) and the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), states that the agencies have “credible information” of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers. The threat of ransomware attacks come as the U.S. healthcare system is already feeling the strain of COVID-19.
According to the advisory, cyber actors are targeting the Healthcare and Public Health (HPH) Sector with TrickBot and BazarLoader malware, often leading to ransomware attacks, data theft, and the disruption of healthcare services. “CISA, FBI, and HHS are sharing this information to provide warning to healthcare providers to ensure that they take timely and reasonable precautions to protect their networks from these threats,” the advisory states.
