In May 2021 Ireland’s public healthcare system, the Health Services Executive (HSE), was hit with a ransomware attack that proved to be extremely costly and disrupted healthcare for months.
A detailed post-mortem of the attack, produced by consulting firm PriceWaterhouseCoopers, (PWC) runs to 150 pages. The report includes not only a description of what happened, but an analysis of mitigating factors and recommendations as well. There’s a lot that can be learned from this attack and from the PriceWaterhouseCoopers report.
