Australia: ACSC releases guidance on mitigating ransomware threats for aged care and healthcare sectors

The Australian Cyber Security Centre ('ACSC') released, on 2 August 2020, guidance ('the Guidance') on mitigating ransomware threats for aged care and healthcare sectors following recent ransomware campaigns. In particular, the Guidance outlines a number of recommendations, including that organisations should report cyber incidents to the ACSC, identify and backup critical information and systems, undergo regular patching to keep systems and software up to date, as well as use antivirus software on all devices.
