In the midst of the COVID-19/Coronavirus Pandemic, cybercriminals are targeting healthcare organizations with phishing campaigns, ransomware, and other malicious acts that can adversely impact health information technology, medical response, and patient safety.

Recently, the New Jersey Cybersecurity and Communications Integration Cell issued an Advisory pertaining to such acts, which includes best practices for users and administrators of healthcare organizations to lower cybersecurity risks.  The best practices are further discussed in a post on our Privacy Compliance & Data Security Blog.  (See New Jersey Issues Best Practices for Healthcare Industry to Combat COVID-19 Cyberattacks).

All healthcare organizations, regardless of their location, can benefit from implementing the best practices discussed in the Advisory, to reduce the risks that cybercriminals pose to health information technology, medical response, and patient safety.
