Aged Care Operators in Australia Under Threat of Ransomware Attacks

The Sydney Morning Herald has announced yet another cyberattack in a string of attacks targeted at Australian organisations and critical infrastructure. Suspected to be the work of an overseas actor, Regis, the aged care operator, is the latest to be affected. Already struggling with the coronavirus outbreak, the company now has to deal with the breach of sensitive personal data. The federal Australian government has issued further ‘critical’ warning that Maze ransomware will likely continue to threaten aged care facilities across the country.
