Almost overnight there has been a significant increase in the frequency and maliciousness of cyber-attacks in the wake of COVID-19 as hackers seek to exploit Corona Virus related panic. Hospitals in particular have experienced a series of threats. At a time when hospitals are focused on battling the virus, cyber-criminals are exploiting the pandemic by targeting these very institutions that are trying to save lives. Society’s most critical providers are now, sadly, the most vulnerable.
