Free MFA Solution – RCDevs extends the free offer to all hospitals
With 45.1M people infected in 171 countries, more than 1.18M dead, and almost 1 billion humans called to contain themselves: the Covid-19 pandemic has put pressure on health services worldwide. This crisis situation doesn’t prevent hackers from stepping up attacks on hospitals and thus we provide free MFA Solution with no limit on the number of Users.
Pressured by the influx of patients from Covid-19, healthcare facilities cannot afford a crippling cyber attack. However, the pirates intend to exploit their current but also structural fragility. Strengthened by this observation RCDevs has decided to join the solidarity movements that are flourishing in all countries and to offer hospitals his freeware i.e. Free MFA beyond the normal 40 users limitation.
State of play for the health sector
The Covid-19 Cyber Threat Coalition (a group of like-minded security specialists) finds the majority of security pros have been targeted by cybercriminals exploiting the coronavirus pandemic and adds to warnings of increased activity targeting the health sector.
The Group said that the most common coronavirus threats were credential phishing (33%), scams (30%), and malicious documents (18%). These results suggested that cybercriminals are taking advantage of standard patterns of attack and have simply rebranded them to take advantage of the crisis. This has been borne out by many reports from various suppliers and industry bodies in recent weeks.
While there’s been an increase in social engineering attacks amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Microsoft said it’s seen evidence of more sophisticated and dangerous threat activity, which could put hospitals and healthcare organizations in jeopardy at a critical time.
In France too, the ANSSI (National Agency for Security of Information Systems) warns of a resurgence of cyberattacks. According to L’Express magazine, the Assistance Publique-Hôpitaux de Paris (AP-HP) was the target of a computer attack on March 22, 2020.
In Spain, the Policía Nacional has issued a warning that the “entire computer system of Spain’s hospitals” is being targeted in a cyber-attack which uses a massive email campaign directed at Spanish healthcare workers, with emails said to contain a “very dangerous and malicious virus”.
