The healthcare industry needs to focus on its own cyber health. That’s the upshot of the latest round of reports and announcements from industry experts across the board.
ECRI Institute, a leading patient safety and medical technology research organization, recently released their 2019 Top Health Technology Hazards. Cybersecurity topped the annual list,
Over the past year, Morphisec and several other endpoint protection companies have been tracking a resurgence in activity from the Cobalt Group. Cobalt, also known as Carbanak and Anunak, is one of the most notorious cybercrime operations, with attacks against more than 100 banks across 40 countries attributed to the group. The most recent attacks can be grouped
Its been a big week for Morphisec.
Yesterday Morphisec announced it has been awarded a contract by the Department of Homeland Security (DHS) for the build-out and enhancement of cyber protection capabilities for Virtual Desktop Infrastructure (VDI) systems. This is the first U.S. Federal initiative the company has pursued, and it’s a validation of how innovative and powerful its approach is with Moving Target Defense.
The Fallout exploit kit, named for its similarities to the once notorious Nuclear exploit kit, already shows signs of reaching the levels of popularity of its namesake.

The cybersecurity attack landscape moves fast, really fast. Last year, not a week passed that didn’t bring about news on a new ransomware incident. Of course ransomware’s very nature lends itself to newsworthy headlines based on how incredibly damaging to businesses this class of attacks can be.
Cybersecurity is an enormous investment with even more enormous consequences for mistakes. To build an optimal security stack you need to balance residual risks with total cost of ownership of the cyber security stack and with minimal disruption to operations.
Fileless malware is a type of a malicious code execution technique that operates completely within process memory; no files are dropped onto the disk. Without any artifacts on the hard drive to detect, these attacks easily evade most security solutions.
