Dimension Data is offering incident response, at no cost, to hospitals battling COVID-19
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.
In response to the rise in attacks launched by cyber-criminals seeking to exploit panic caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Dimension Data, in conjunction with parent company NTT Ltd., will provide private and government hospitals battling COVID-19, with Incident Response (IR) support at no cost for cyber-security attacks during the pandemic, if an incident occurs. This service will be available until the 07th of August 2020 and once a client pre-qualifies and signs a scope of work, they will receive up to 40 hours of remediation service, at no cost.
We salute the work our hospitals are doing and we stand ready to help.
How we can help you?
What we are seeing right now
The real and unfortunate reality we currently face is that the most critical providers in this crisis, being hospitals are also the most vulnerable. Threat actors have turned their attention to these institutions as they take advantage of the chaos for their own benefit.
