Demand for ransomware payments has increased during the COVID-19 pandemic as cyber actors target networks that organizations rely on to continue conducting business. Nowhere is this threat more evident than the health care sector. The economic and reputational impacts of ransomware incidents have also proven challenging for health care organizations large and small. Ransomware incidents have become more destructive and impactful and just recently, in October of 2020, the U.S. Department of the Treasury’s Office of Foreign Assets Control (OFAC) issued an advisory highlighting the sanctions associated with ransomware payments. The OFAC advisory now calls into question the availability of certain ransomware response options. Securing the future from ransomware attacks will require a renewed focus on risk management, cybersecurity and legal review in both the short and long term. Your compliance requirements may not have changed but the ransomware threats have. Your cybersecurity program should be robust enough to combat new ransomware attacks, new technologies should be used to do more with less, and the right risk mitigation strategy should be in place to protect your organization from unnecessary risk.
