To help stay ahead of evolving cyber threats, including ransomware, it’s critical that healthcare entities deploy a defense-in-depth strategy that includes tapping advanced tools, including deception technology, says security expert Elie Nasrallah.Deception technology can help organizations identify emerging threats and potential attacks, says Nasrallah, director of cybersecurity strategy at the Healthcare Information Trust Alliance, or HITRUST, an information sharing and analysis organization known for its Common Security Framework.As part of HITRUST’s threat intelligence sharing efforts, “we’re actually deploying decoys that mimic healthcare systems,” such as electronic health records systems and medical devices, he says in an interview with Information Security Media Group.”We lure the would-be-attackers into these decoys that look and feel just like production systems but contain fake data so that we can capture their techniques, tactics and procedures,” he says.
