The 2019 HIMSS Cybersecurity Survey indicated that email is the initial point of compromise for healthcare cyber-attacks, with cybercriminals increasingly favoring Business Email Compromise (BEC) as a primary tactic. Because BEC emails do not carry malicious payload and are narrowly targeted, it’s difficult for health institutions to detect these attacks. In 2020, cybercriminals are even more focused on BEC attacks, with information related to COVID-19 being the primary lure. This webinar will outline the cybersecurity challenges currently facing healthcare, explore how COVID-19 has become the primary focus of cybercriminal activities, and offer tips how the industry can protect itself against these attacks.
