The FBI, Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Department of Health and Human Services are warning that — with the increase in COVID-19 cases — healthcare facilities are being aggressively targeted by hackers, according to the Government Technology website.
Some two dozen hospitals have already been hit.
The agencies have jointly published a warning about an "imminent and increased cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers" in a recent advisory.
