Cybersecurity Tips for EMS Networks

There are several endpoints and targets that cyber attack groups will attempt to exploit within EMS agencies, mainly for financial gain. EMS agencies rely on communications tools in order to respond to emergencies across several areas, and communicate with hospitals during transport. Those communications tools rely on software and other digital technology connected to your networks directly or through a third party and once accessed, can be hit with ransomware attacks, as well as TDoS or DDoS attacks that can shut down entire networks and take critical communications down. Cyber attackers will also target sensitive data on these networks with exfiltration and encryption techniques to extort ransoms.

There have been multiple cyber attacks targeting EMS agencies across the country, especially in areas where agencies serve a sizeable population. However, cyber criminals have proven that any area can be a potential target if they find a vulnerable network and access to data.

Phishing attacks, finding routes into networks through third party apps and tools, or exploiting dormant accounts are among the most common ways cyber threat actors will attempt to attack EMS agency networks.

Taking a proactive approach to cybersecurity is among the best cybersecurity tips for EMS agency networks can follow. That includes cyber training all agency staff members, having a regular network vulnerability assessment as recommended by CISA and the FCC for public safety organizations, as well as having an incident response plan prepared for when your agency does face a cyber threat, which SecuLore will help you create so your organization can mitigate any potential damage.
