CISO warns of phishing attack on health system

NEWS - editor Rebecca McBeth

A live phishing attack is targeting the New Zealand health system and staff should be cautious of emails that may compromise their organisations, says chief information security officer (CISO) Sonny Taite.

Taite spoke at a Health New Zealand Te Whatu Ora stakeholder hui in June where he said the team had become aware of a phishing campaign targeting the collective health system.

The malicious campaign is impacting up to 13 small and large organisations across the health sector.

“They are relying on the trust that we have with each other to compromise an email account and then use that email account to share phishing scam emails to you all.”
