Trickbot or Treat: Heightened Cybersecurity Threats Unfold in Real Time

Harris Beach PLLC

It’s Halloween week, and things are getting scary. Our post from earlier this week proved eerily prescient when the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) issued a warning based on credible information of cybercrime.

They’re urging timely preparations for an imminent threat of an attack known as Ryuk that’s targeting the health care sector through Trickbot malware, which can lead to ransomware attacks, theft of data, and disruption of critical health services. To avoid a scary outcome, it’s critical for healthcare organizations to examine how they manage their cybersecurity to mitigate risks. Below are three resources:
