The third quarter has been difficult for the healthcare industry as ransomware attacks have increased by 50% compared to the first half of 2020. The U.S healthcare sector has seen the highest amount of attacks this year and it is expected that they will face even more in the coming months. The rise of the pandemic saw IT departments scrambling to meet the demands of remote workers, which in turn left gaps in the system. Hackers have already compromised the data of millions of patients and widespread malware like Emotet and Ryuk are circulating among organizations again. With ransom payment going against U.S sanctions, it’s imperative that organizations back up their data on separate hard drives in the event of an attack. Lastly, sandboxing can be another effective method to analyze and identify malware that could cause potential harm to your organization.
