Healthcare Threat Landscape: How eCrime Attacks Have Turned Deadly in 2020

Wednesday 24 Nov 2pm AEDT and Thursday 10 December 10am GMT

How to remain vigilant against eCrime activity in Healthcare

eCrime activity has increased exponentially in 2020, with a major spike in ransomware activity across multiple industries. Although certain criminal syndicates have promised to steer clear of attacking the Healthcare vertical due to COVID-19, fear and confusion caused by SARS-COV-2 has provided threat actors with a new lure for their nefarious activities. Some adversaries have taken this opportunity to cause chaos across the global healthcare system, conducting attacks and in certain cases leading to deadly consequences.

Join Scott Jarkoff, CrowdStrike’s Director, Strategic Threat Advisory Group for APJ & EMEA, as he discusses the latest nation state and e-crime attacks targeting healthcare providers around the world, and provide concepts attendees can leverage to remain vigilant against the discussed activity.
