The Waikato DHB hack is far more serious and damaging than first claimed. I doubt they will be back to normal this year.
My first 3 questions were:
1 – Is it true Waikato DHB were cutting back on cyber security?
2 – What did Waikato DHB do when they heard the same attack had occurred in Ireland?
3 – This took weeks to set up, are any other Public Services in danger of being compromised?
The suspicion is Waikato DHB did cut back on cyber security, Government were warned about this type of hack and the GSCB seem to have no idea if anything else is compromised.
1: Have the PMs health records been compromised?
2: Is this a foreign actor testing NZ systems at a time of growing tensions in the South Pacific?
3: What happens if other DHBs are also targeted?
This is rapidly becoming a national threat.
