Cybersecurity Expert Warns
of Virus Opportunists
In an interview with TechRepublic's Karen Roby, the chief revenue officer at Wire, Rasmus Holst, described methods hackers are already using to leverage your fear of Covid19.
"The coronavirus does a couple of things for how we react as human beings to a crisis. We tend to increase our awareness and therefore be more interested in information [about the crisis]. That increases the risk that your employees might jump into something they think is [real] information about the crisis when it is actually a phishing attack. Malicious actors know the psychology of people. As the barriers to getting information increases, they use that as the underlying marketability to get in and hack your network."
Example: You get an email that appears to be from your CEO, "This is how we will respond to the crisis." It has a link to a company policy, how you would get to work and precautions you should take, etc. But it is a phishing email and your computer is infected, as is possibly the entire company network, as soon as you click on the link.
Holst's advice is not to let your guard down, even though it is human nature to do so in a time like this.
The intention of the web-based tool is to eliminate the need for guess work, streamline comprehending the 50-60-page guidelines, and help patients, clinicians and support staff work in coordination. This web-based tool allows users to efficiently access relevant guidelines and adjust to changing standards of care.
University of Utah Critical Care Pulmonologist and replicable methods expert, Dr. Alan Morris, has indicated that it will be imperative for healthcare providers to use replicable methods to achieve consistency of care so it can effectively respond to this global crisis. He has made it clear that it only makes sense to employ state-of-the-art technology to speed the adoption of these protocols.
MayaMD is offering this web-based tool to help curb the spread of this global pandemic. "If you are a governmental agency with different protocols, we can build you a web-based tool or app in 48 hours to reflect those needs. We are with you in this fight," says CEO, Vipindas Chengat.
MayaMD is committed to fight the spread of misinformation about coronavirus infection.
