Best practices for ransomware protection in hospital groups | #ransomware | #cybercrime

Palo Alto Networks’s 2023 Unit 42 Ransomware and Extortion Report reveals insights that ransomware demands continued to be a pain point for organizations this past year, with observed payments as high as US$7 million. The median demand was US$650,000, while the median payment was US$350,000, indicating that effective negotiation can drive down actual payments. Thailand ranks 6th in the APAC region in the number of ransomware attacks but holds the first spot in Southeast Asia.

“Organizations must stay vigilant against evolving threats as they become more sophisticated with new technologies. In this context, a zero-trust cybersecurity approach is crucial due to device proliferation driven by the medical IoT environment and increasing cloud adoption. To stay ahead of emerging threats, organizations need a threat intelligence team that monitors global attacks and potential risks to the organization,” Piya Jitnimit, Country Manager for Thailand, shares insights into best practices and cybersecurity strategies.
