Malware Attacks Healthcare

Other security flaws

In our October issue, we cover the suspected ransomware attack that affected Universal Health Systems and the impact it had on the ability of a hospital to provide care and chart patient treatments.  This shows that ransomware has not gone away and that any company is potentially at risk and how SIM2K can help with your security planning.  We also look at security flaws in Microsoft Azure Cloud service and how it could permit access to server-wide information.  Google has made improvements to the Chrome browser that we detail, and the pandemic has encouraged Microsoft to make improvements to Teams to promote collaboration for an at-home workforce.  Finally, if you thought the mainframe computer was "old tech," the adaptation of Linux to a mainframe environment plus Cloud computing has put mainframes on the comeback trail.
