H-ISAC Report: Hacking Healthcare - TLP White, May 6, 2020

In this edition of Hacking Healthcare, we begin by examining how COVID-19 led the United Kingdom’s (UK) National Health Service (NHS) to give the country’s intelligence and security agency emergency powers over its networks. We then brief you on a recent letter from Congressional lawmakers and discuss its illustration of the unique challenge of implementing digital contact tracing in the United States. Finally, we take a brief look at why foreign intelligence services are targeting parts of the healthcare sector, and when it might be expected to stop.  Welcome back to Hacking Healthcare.  

In this edition:

  • COVID-19’s Cyber Threat Leads to More GCHQ-NHS Cooperation
