Anatomy of a Cyber Attack Anthony Zissimos serves as a Cybersecurity Advisor in the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA). Abstract: In the early hours of May 2021, the Irish Health System (HSE) was subjected to a ransomware cyberattack. The largest employer, and largest health provider in Ireland with 4,000 locations, 54 hospitals, and over 70,000 devices, switched off all IT systems and disconnected the National Healthcare Network from the internet to attempt to contain and assess the impact of the cyberattack. While this stopped the threat actor from accessing the information, it also stopped the health care professionals from utilizing the system – losing access to potentially life-saving information. What happened? How did they fix it? And now do Cyber Security professionals stop this from happening in the first place?
