Expert Comment: CISA issues warning of Daixin team ransomware hackers targeting health organisations

October 2022 by Dr. Darren Williiams, CEO and Founder of Blackfog

The CISA’s latest joint advisory warns of attacks perpetrated by a
cybercrime gang, known as the Daixin Team, which primarily targets
the healthcare sector in this country.
The commentfrom Dr. Darren Williiams, CEO and
Founder of Blackfog:

_"Of the many high-profile cyberattacks to make headlines in the past
few years, few provoke a feeling of concern like ransomware attacks on
hospitals and healthcare institutions. With patients’ lives on the line
and a wealth of incredibly sensitive data, these organisations present a
compelling target for ruthless cybercriminals. Unfortunately, the sector
is often a soft target as they have lower levels of protection in place
and a general lack of cybersecurity investment. Our research shows that
healthcare is consistently in the top 3 of all targeted sectors, hardly
a surprise given the wealth of personal data available and the
opportunity for double extortion attacks. We know that virtually all
ransomware attacks now focus on data exfiltration - the problem we have
is that organisations continue to rely on existing defensive
technologies that simply aren’t up to the job of preventing these
attacks. To really secure valuable data, newer technologies such as
anti-data exfiltration must be added to the security stack."_
