ICIT Analysis: How to Crush the Health Sector’s Ransomware Pandemic

Ransomware Healthcare AI


The health sector is the most vulnerable, most targeted, and resoundingly least equipped to defend against hackers who are pummeling healthcare organizations with ransomware attacks.   This ransomware epidemic will only become more severe and costly as the infection volume in 2017 will trump infections in 2016.

In this post, entitled “How to Crush the Health Sector’s Ransomware Pandemic: The Machine Learning Based Artificial Intelligence Revolution Starts Now!”, the Institute for Critical Infrastructure Technology discusses the power of machine based artificial intelligence as a potent cybersecurity defense layer to defend against hyper-evolving APTs and malware.  Specifically, the paper:

  • Includes screenshots of next-generation ransomware available on deep web forums
  • Discusses the ease at which adversaries with minimal technological capability can customize ransomware
  • Analyzes how machine based artificial intelligence can predict threats

The findings of this paper will be presented at the March 28, 2017 ICIT Briefing – Registration Now Open
