We are so grateful that through this pandemic many of our members repurposed to provide Personal Protective Equipment or gave well needed guidance as it related to the criteria for stimulus finds. The HIA-LI was right there with you, swiftly disseminating critical information from the State (NY FORWARD) and the Suffolk County COVID Business task force. We set up a special Coronavirus section on our website and virtual meetings to continue to get you important information.

Stay Tuned for some new product offerings that will help you enhance your business in 2021. I am so proud that the HIA-LI made a conscious decision to stay open and there for all of you. None of that would have been possible without our dedicated Board, Committee Co Chairs, Staff and all of you.

FEATURING CHRISTOPHER CEO & MANAGING KEITH NEWELL,PARTNER CFO AT TECHWORKS CONSULTING, INC. CRAIG FINE | LONG COLUCCIO, ISLAND OFFICE OF MAZARS IN THE US TELL US ABOUT HOW YOU/YOUR COMPANY STARTED. After an honorable discharge from the U.S. Army at the beginning of the century, Maxwell R. Weiser decided to pursue his dream of owning his own business and becoming an accountant. Going to night school while he worked as a bookkeeper, Max graduated New York University and founded M.R. Weiser & Company in 1921 to serve the accounting and business needs of entrepreneurs. His early clients included a laundry, an oil refinery, and a variety of small businesses. Maintaining a strict work ethic, Max worked six days a week, year-round. His dedication to providing the ultimate customer service experience had “his golf clubs seeing more courses than he did,” since Max was known for canceling vacations at a moment’s notice to assist with client emergencies. Max lived well into his 90s and was always proud of his firm’s success. Max’s son Ken went to school to become a mechanical engineer but found he did not like it and switched to Harvard Business School, joining M.R. Weiser & Company in 1949. Ken became a Managing Partner in the 60s. Over the years, many individuals contributed to building upon Max’s legacy. In 2001, the firm shortened its name to “Weiser,” modernized its logo, and under the watchful eye of Managing Partner Doug Phillips enters a period of growth and expansion. In 2010, the firm joined with Mazars Group, becoming the U.S. independent member firm with a broad global reach. Victor Wahba, who became the firm’s Chief Executive Officer in 2015 and Chairman in 2016, oversees the future success of the firm as Mazars.

WHAT WAS A TURNING POINT FOR YOU/YOUR COMPANY? A turning point for the firm would be in October of 2020 we unveiled our new global brand identity in over 90 countries and territories, marking a key milestone in the firm’s evolution. The rebrand reflects Mazars’ aspiration to bring choice and a different perspective to the audit, tax and advisory market, and reaffirms our commitment to building a fair, prosperous and sustainable world. The new brand identity also reaffirms our purpose and long-standing values of integrity, responsibility and accountability. At the heart of our commitment to building a fair and prosperous world is the firm’s leadership position on researching and shaping the debate about how financial services can help mitigate the effects of climate change, as well as its contribution to a collective reflection with all stakeholders to secure the quality of audit and close the expectation gap facing the entire profession.

January 2021 - The HIA-LI Reporter Page 6

WHAT IS YOUR COMPANY’S PHILOSOPHY? Since the founding of our firm, caring has always been at the heart of who we are. We make a promise to our clients and our people: to understand and respect who they are and how they work and create services and experiences to fit their unique needs. It’s a promise which is a reflection of our care. We care for the success of all of our clients. Working with them as one team to achieve their goals with confidence. We care for our people. We embrace their individuality and support them in becoming the leaders they want to be. We care for the integrity of our industry. One we helped to pioneer and continue to shape: bringing choice and a different perspective. And we care for society. We do what’s right, not just what we’re asked. All in pursuit of our aim of helping build the economic foundations of a fair and prosperous world. We’re proud to care. It’s what makes us, us.

“..We make a promise to our clients and our people: to understand and respect who they are and how they work and create services and experiences to fit their unique needs.”

HIA-LI: BUSINESS STEPS UP

T

hrough these unprecedented times, many Long island businesses have risen to the occasion to demonstrate their support. as part of a new initiative called “HIA-LI: Business Steps Up,” we will be showcasing the things members are doing to help their fellow businesses, to support public health, or help the community at large.

71 Visuals Rose To The Governor’s PPE Challenge “On March 20, Governor Cuomo pleaded with New Yorkers to get creative and help with the PPE supply chain in any way they can,” said Craig Geiger, Principal Owner of 71 Visuals. “It was like he was talking to us. I thought to myself: we’re creative people . . . we can do this!” That was when Geiger – who until then was running a successful printing and design company with production facilities in the Long Island Innovation Park at Hauppauge – decided to pivot his manufacturing team by designing and mass-producing face shields essential to the safety of medical staff and first responders.

Craig Geiger

Principal Owner of 71 Visuals

“The cry for help was overwhelming,” added Geiger, “and a new mission for our company was born.” The company initially used its social media platforms to help spread the word. A GoFundMe page was also launched to support donations from family, friends, and business colleagues. For distribution, 71 Visuals set-up a curbside pickup program, dedicating certain days to hand-out care packages with face shields to first responders. “We had lines down the street,” Geiger said, including senior citizens looking to

obtain face shields for their adult children who were on the front lines. “It was a very emotional time for our team as everyone was very excited to be a part of this critical new mission for our firm.” There’s a company motto attributed to Geiger on the 71 Visuals website that reads, “It’s not the tools you have but how you use them that differentiates you.” Did Geiger know how true those words would become? “If you told me at the start of this pandemic that our team would be mass-producing face shields and be considered a vital part of the PPE supply chain for first responders, I would tell you that you’re crazy.” 71 Visuals is a large-format printing company that specializes in environmental branding, creating retail experiences and in-store signage with a specialty in corporate interiors. Some of the brands they work with include Vineyard Vines, American Eagle, Old Navy, Macy’s, Audible, Justworks, Johnson & Johnson, and Regeneron.

Gurwin-Stony Brook Partnership Launches Advanced Telehealth Program In response to the pandemic, Gurwin Healthcare System’s Certified Home Health Agency launched a Transitional Telehealth Program in April, treating COVID-19 patients as they were transitioned home from the hospital.

President and CEO of Gurwin Healthcare System

“We are so pleased to partner with Stony Brook University Hospital Medical Center and Stony Brook Physician’s Group to offer this innovative Telehealth program to our community in their homes as well as to residents in Assisted Living communities,” said Stuart B. Almer, President and

Almer added that Gurwin expanded from those with COVID-19 to offer access to critical healthcare services, doubling their home care census in just two months. Gurwin’s team of clinical specialists provides outreach to at-risk seniors experiencing signs of decline in their health or possible signs of COVID-19 but who are afraid to leave their homes to seek medical attention. Since 1988, Gurwin has been a leader in providing high quality care for the Long Island community. What began as a small “mom and pop” nursing home has now grown to include a full continuum of healthcare services, including a 460-bed nursing and rehabilitation center providing long-term care, short-term rehabilitation, ventilator and respiratory care, an Advanced Care Unit for medically complex patients, Alzheimer’s/dementia care, palliative and hospice care, medical and social adult day care programs, on-site dialysis, and an on-site infusion therapy center. They also run a 201-bed Assisted Living Community.

Gurwin’s clinical team partnered with Stony Brook University Hospital to provide specialized care utilizing cutting-edge, Bluetooth remote patient monitoring (RPM) technology to monitor highrisk patients with COVID-19 or other chronic or acute health conditions. The technology platform includes remote monitoring of daily blood pressure, heart rate, temperature, pulse oximetry, glucose, and weight readings, as well as providing advanced cardiac care monitoring using state-ofthe-art stethoscopes equipped to record, analyze and transmit heart and lung sounds and ECG recordings. It also allows patient-physician and patient-nurse virtual visits. Clinicians communicate any changes in the patient’s health condition to the physician, who gains the critical information needed to care for patients at home.

CEO of Gurwin Healthcare System, which includes the Gurwin Certified Home Health Agency. The immediate success of the program shows we can keep our patients safe while helping to decrease unnecessary hospitalizations and emergency room visits. We look forward to further expanding this special program.”

keepingcurrent Pandemic Pivot, Curating Physical Network Presence On Long Island By John A. Danko Director of Business Development Manager 1025Connect I have this conviction and it can’t be shaken. What we are experiencing at 1025Connect isn’t some new way to interconnect and colocate within Carrier Hotels. In fact, it’s a belief in a code that is centered on being truly neutral and focusing on the customer, what they bring to the ecosystem and how others who are interconnected within the colocation facility can benefit. A conviction to be cognizant of the “make up” of the community of networks, the kinds of networks that in a marketplace can legitimately drive business between themselves, of course under the right steward or custodian. Throughout the years, I’ve been through the process and learned a lot through trial and error. I am guiding us through a rebuilt model that creates a unique culture and strives to serve and bring together those networks that perhaps have not thought of colocation interconnection for their business, while optimizing existing customer networks to go further towards a

better experience. We are striving to grow the facility wider and larger by tailoring very carefully the enablement of colocation to work and support the enterprise sector, and by communicating that we’re easy to do business with and we are hospitable. 1025Connect is attractive to Carriers and Service Providers, but the result of curating that physical network presence, and the proximity to it, creates an ecosystem that becomes attractive to a large sector of enterprise networks that are exploring the lowest cost and lowest latency to connect with digital applications and content they desire. Many businesses impacted by the pandemic are unsure of what recovery looks like in the near or long term, and decisions regarding network and critical applications that sustain revenue, are being looked at entirely different. If you have shifted away from the office, or sold building assets, where is your network? Enterprises can shift their phone closet, server room, data room, etc. to a fully supported space and power footprint in colocation that facilitates the direct connection to their existing services and/or provide other options with the idea that they can choose what will fit their existing requirements and shifting workforce.

1025Connect recently executed an agreement with a manufacturer that sold its building, its contents and shifted their workforce home, with a strategy to confidently operate the business remotely, which has been proven effective during this unique scenario we all have had to navigate within. We leased the space and power, fully backed by UPS and generators, with connectivity to an ISP, and moved their switch gear and servers into our facility, effectively moving the phone closet! Being truly aligned with your customer is uplifting for the entire colocation room, by stewarding requests from customers or prospects to the customers (networks/applications) in the facility, in a neutral fashion, you give the community the conviction themselves that they can procure and connect to whatever is needed to support their business. Businesses are pivoting and accelerating commercial transformation inside the colocation interconnection facilities to bring the infrastructure they need to find a home that’s closer to end users and enterprises. In today’s disrupted business climate, we are here to help, and we would love to meet you.

keepingcurrent How to be Successful with Virtual Job/Internship Fairs By Crystal Diaz Employer Relations Associate, Stony Brook University Career Center Crystal.M.Diaz@stonybrook.edu (631) 632-6089

and attract candidates. In 2020, employers and job/internship seekers embraced the ambiguous world of virtual recruitment. While virtual career fairs were a new experience for many employers, they shared positive feedback on their experience with this new format.

Employers have used job and internship fairs in the past as part of their recruitment strategy to create awareness of opportunities and meet with potential candidates in a larger setting. In 2020, the virtual job and internship fair stepped into the place of traditional fairs typically held in large conference halls or community multipurpose rooms.

“Great event - under the circumstances, the virtual career fair was very organized, well thought-out. Although it was virtual, the Stony Brook University team did a fantastic job of keeping it focused on the students and job opportunities. I still felt the energy of a career fair, even though it was virtual. Amazing job!� - Rhodora LaRochelle, Northwell Health

Virtual job and internship fairs created additional access for employers who may not have attended inperson fairs in the past. There is no traveling required, no giveaways or company materials to distribute, it provides more flexible scheduling for recruiters, and there is no limit to how many recruiters can participate due to location. It is truly the best time for companies and organizations to test job and internship fairs as a potential recruitment strategy.

For employers who are interested in participating in a virtual job and internship fair, it is important to consider a few steps to take before, during and after the event. Reviewing these tips will help you to have the best experience possible and maximize what you get out of the fairs.

Participating in a virtual job and internship fair can put your company or organization in front of more qualified candidates. The talent-workforce gap is well known: candidates are unaware of the opportunities available in their backyard, and companies and organizations are unsure of how to best reach the pool of massive talent. To bridge the gap between companies and candidates, job and internships fairs remain one of the best, most efficient ways to brand your company

Tips for Before the Virtual Fair 1) Conduct outreach to candidates ahead of time to build awareness of available positions at your company/organization. 2) Develop messaging with information about your company and recruitment timeline to share with candidates who have signed up with your company/ organization. 3) Announce fairs and recruitment events that you will be attending on your LinkedIn page and company

social media accounts, tagging the school whose fair you will be attending. Tips for During the Virtual Fair 1) Provide clear information with candidates on current available positions. Candidates are not always clear on what specific roles you are recruiting for at a specific event. 2) Share information with candidates on how they are able to follow up with you after the event. Candidates can be unsure on how to ask for this information in a virtual setting! 3) Invite students in real time to future events, social media accounts and job posting applications. Tips for After the Virtual Fair 1) Follow up with candidates you are interested in further engaging via messaging on the virtual platform, email, phone, etc. to schedule formal interviews. It is important to show your excitement with a candidate that you are particularly interested in. 2) Send a specialized invitation to candidates to future company recruitment events. While virtual job and internship fairs grew in popularity out of necessity in 2020, they have quickly produced successful outcomes for employers that have made them an exciting staple for future recruitment.

Vice President of Sales at VAI 120 Comac Street Ronkonkoma, NY 11779 www.vai.net (631) 619-4729

2020 has shown us that technology is the key to business continuity in a world of uncertainty. We can be sure that an even greater increase in digital transformation and technological adoption is coming, especially with enterprise resource planning (ERP) applications, and this will help companies stay ahead of any challenge happening around them. While the technological advancements that helped shape 2020 are rooted in ongoing developments in ERP systems, will we see the same for 2021? The following predictions offer a glimpse into the future of the ERP marketplace and the technological landscape: ERP in the Cloud Cloud-based ERP deployments increased in 2020, and that will continue in 2021. Remote work with employees spread out geographically is prioritizing the need to access data from any location. By running their ERP solution in the cloud, employees can work seamlessly and easily access enterprise applications from one central solution, reducing productivity halts and location restraints. Additionally, a cloud-based ERP solution eliminates the need for workers to go to a physical location to

perform maintenance for on-premises equipment. This allows companies to shift IT resources from maintenance of systems to business growth and cuts down on time spent traveling to troubleshoot or resolve issues. AI with Robotics in the Warehouse More data is being collected now than ever, and Artificial Intelligence (AI) can be implemented to combine sales data with outside unstructured data — like sales trends and weather situations — to predict demand patterns. AI can also aid in warehouse automation by improving speech recognition for voice picking technology and handsfree operations. Overall, AI will continue to play an important part in enhancing warehouse operations and allowing customers to improve logistics, profits, and customer service. Mobile and e-Business The adoption of Mobile and e-business capabilities is growing, as businesses find new ways to service customers other than face-to-face. Many organizations are planning to extend remote work through some or even all of 2021 and in some cases, well beyond the next year, and mobile and e-business tools will enable employees to operate and manage daily functions with even greater connectivity and efficiency. From ordering materials and coordinating deliveries, to overseeing distribution of product, mobile will continue to drive the supply chain and impact businesses’ bottomline. At the same time, e-business capabilities will

make it easy for customers to do business from their desktops or mobile devices, and quickly execute transactions across applications and access enterprise data, all in real-time. Marketing Automation and CRM Tools Face-to-face interaction may continue to be limited, so businesses must leverage tools that not only help them nurture existing customer relationships, but also attract and develop new customers via online advertising and promotion. Marketing automation tools give businesses the ability to send professional emails to customers and prospects, and automates follow-ups based on subscriber behavior. Additionally, an integrated customer relationship management (CRM) application will help sales representatives track activities and monitor web page visits. With a high return on investment, email marketing and CRM functionality is one of the most effective ways to generate sales, increase brand awareness, and boost customer service. 2020 has forced many companies to reevaluate their business resiliency and rapidly invest in technology that will improve business sustainability. Leveraging a cloud-based ERP solution that enables AI in the warehouse and adds mobile business applications, e-Business functionality, and marketing automation and CRM tools will help them effectively compete, survive, and even thrive.

Chief Executive Officer Long Island Cares, Inc. The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank 10 Davids Drive – Harry Chapin Way Hauppauge, New York 11788 Office: 631.582.3663 x 101 www.licares.org

The disturbing events that unfolded in our nation’s capital on Wednesday, January 6, 2021, have unnerved a majority of Americans as well as many of our country’s global allies. This attack on our democracy, our elected officials in Congress and on our rules of law was inspired by conspiracy theories, misinformation, systemic racism, organized denial, and tragically, incited by the holder of the highest office in our land up to January 20th. This attack was further fueled by more than 130 members of the United States Congress who placed these conspiracies about our fair election process above the will of the majority of Americans. Every American has the right to protest and have their voices heard in a democratic society. We do not have a right to incite violence, spread conspiracy theories or encourage attacks against those that might disagree with them. Long Island Cares, Inc. – The Harry Chapin Regional Food Bank was founded 40 years ago by an American songwriter, musician and social activist. Harry Chapin and his family, along with others stood up and spoke out in support of those in our country struggling with

poverty, systemic racism, economic hardships, and the other root causes of hunger. In establishing Long Island Cares, Inc. he sought a solution to a problem he referred to as; “The Shame of America.” In developing our organizations’ policies and profile, he recognized that along with providing emergency food assistance, our organization needed to address these root causes of hunger, and that as a staff working with our board members we had an obligation to speak out and call attention to acts of injustice, discrimination, and the incitement of illegal acts of violence. You cannot lift people up if we allow others to hold them down from achieving the American dream and a more prosperous way of life. Long Island Cares, Inc. is a safe haven for many people in need. We are recognized for our inclusive corporate culture, our focus on putting people first, and taking calculated risks to improve the quality of life for people in need regardless of their race,

During this time of uncertainty, I understand that many people are anxious and concerned about their personal safety, and the safety of their family and community. As we continue to adjust to life under a pandemic that continues to ravage our nation, we will remain focused on our work, the well-being of our neighbors in need, and the safety and happiness of our staff and volunteers. Seeing the images of our Capital Building under siege and watching members of Congress have their offices vandalized and being led to safe and undisclosed locations was heartbreaking to all of us that love our country and value our freedoms. This unlawful attack on our democracy cannot happen again. Americans must not forget this event or the names and titles of people who encouraged these unlawful acts of terrorism against our nation. This has been the saddest day in our recent history including, the events of 9/11. I am hopeful that the incoming Biden/Harris administration will take the necessary actions to restore peace and integrity to not only the American people but also the Democratic process.

keepingcurrent How To Deal With The Winter Blues In The Pandemic By Melissa Rose South Shore Child Guidance Center 631-882-7938 melissa@marketingworkspr.com

In a typical year, the post-holiday/winter blues set in about now. The festive decorations are gone, there are no celebrations to look forward to, the days are short, it’s cold outside and the credit card bills from holiday spending are arriving. This year is anything but typical, and the winter blues may be even more pronounced this year because of the pandemic, according to Wendy Lang, Director of the new Adult Mental Health Clinic, which opened Jan. 1 at South Shore Child Guidance Center in Freeport. South Shore is part of EPIC Long Island, which also operates a full-service mental health clinic in East Meadow. “The pandemic has increased symptoms of anxiety and depressive disorders in the community,” Ms. Lang said. In addition to fear of the virus and how it may impact their own health or that of their loved ones, many people are dealing with feelings of isolation due to social distancing and financial stress due to losses of jobs and businesses. These stressors can lead to feelings of despair, a relapse of substance abuse and thoughts of suicide. Add to that the fact that mass vaccinations are still

months away and a long, dark winter looms. Lang has some recommendations for coping with the postholiday/winter blues in 2021: Stay connected: Even if you can’t see people in person, you can speak to them on the phone or on video chat programs like Zoom. Make an effort to call friends and relatives, and take the initiative to organize a group Zoom event. Having a social event to look forward to – even if it’s virtual – may help lift not only your spirits, but the spirits of others who may also need a boost. Get outside: Sunshine and fresh air can help boost your mood. Bundle up and go outside in the middle of the day, even if it’s just for 15 minutes. Check the long-range forecast to plan longer outings on days when the temperature will be warmer. Exercise: Daily exercise can help lift your mood, as endorphins are released by the body when you work out. If you are healthy enough for exercise, develop a workout regimen of at least 30 minutes per day. The pandemic has led to an increase in home-based exercise routines that are available online. And taking a brisk walk every day is a great way to boost endorphins while getting much-needed sunlight. Eat well: The new year is a great time to start a healthy eating routine. A well-balanced diet rich in fruits, vegetables and lean proteins can help you feel more energetic. Even small, sustainable changes to your diet can improve your feeling of well-being. Limit alcohol: It’s easy to turn to wine or something stronger when you’re feeling down. But increasing

your alcohol consumption can leave you feeling more depressed and hopeless. If you find you are drinking more because of the pandemic and you are having trouble cutting down, seek help. South Shore Child Guidance Center’s C.A.R.E. Center offers chemical dependency services for individuals with substance use disorders as well as support for their loved ones. Discuss your feelings: If you are feeling depressed or anxious, discussing your feelings with a trusted friend or family member can be therapeutic. If you do not have anyone that you feel comfortable talking to, or if your feelings persist for more than a couple of weeks, give us a call at 516-868-3030. At South Shore, we offer mental health counseling sessions via telephone, videoconference or in-person. Visit https:// www.epicli.org/program-services/mental-health-clinic/ services-for-adults/ for more information.

What can our business become in the next 12 months, and how can I get it there?

Businesses in all industries rely more heavily than ever on technology and the lightning-fast exchange of data we’ve come to depend upon. That data lives on the hard drives and memory cards in the computer equipment we use each day. And while responsible organizations take measures to safeguard against a threat by leveraging security software and firewalls, they often leave themselves vulnerable to a catastrophic data breach when retiring IT assets. Deleting or reformatting a hard drive will NOT erase the sensitive data, which remains recoverable, and is often the source of a costly data leak long after it has been deleted. Pupfish Sustainability Solutions mitigates the risk of a data breach by offering data destruction options that meet and exceed those set forth by the Department of Defense and the National Security Agency. We ensure regulatory compliance and safeguard the environment with a zero-landfill policy when recycling e-waste. In addition to working directly with businesses of all sizes to ensure regulatory compliance and meet corporate social responsibility goals, we offer dynamic partnership opportunities which enable other technology-focused organizations to offer our services as an extension of their own portfolio. All services are performed at our Hauppauge Industrial Park location and are never sent to a third party for hard drive sanitization, degaussing or hard drive destruction.

HIA-LI’S ANNUAL MEETING - SPECIAL SECTION

keepingcurrent Between the Hammer and the Anvil:Navigating a Ransomware Attack amid Federal Advisories By Leora F. Ardizzone, Of Counsel Ruskin Moscou Faltischek P.C. 516-663-6600 lardizzone@rmfpc.com www.rmfpc.com/attorneys/leora-f-ardizzone/

Ransomware has been around for years but what was once a nuisance perpetrated by novice hackers, has now become a global criminal enterprise, holding big and small businesses, hospitals, local governments and school districts hostage, demanding and collecting billions of dollars from victims. In response to this growing threat to business operations and to data privacy, several federal agencies have issued advisories regarding ransomware. On October 1, 2020, the Department of the Treasury, Office of Foreign Assets Control (“OFAC”), issued an advisory highlighting sanctions risks associated with payments by victims of ransom to cybercriminals. Closing the month, on October 29, 2020, in a rare joint cybersecurity advisory (“Joint Advisory”) issued by the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (“CISA”), Federal Bureau of Investigation (“FBI”) and the Department of Health and Human Services (“HHS”) warning hospitals and health care providers of “…credible information of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers.”

Of note, the OFACS advisory does not ban payment of ransoms. Rather, it underscores the importance of the investigation of an attack to confirm that if a payment of a ransom is made, that it is not made to a sanctioned organization or a group suspected of being tied to a sanctioned organization, and that any payment does not violate money laundering laws. In addition, in light of the risk of significant penalties, the OFACS advisory highlights sanction compliance, and cooperating with law enforcement as “significant mitigating” factors. The OFACS advisory focuses on financial institutions, and while not every ransomware attack needs to be reported to OFACS, the advisory lists the following agencies that victims of a ransomware attack should consider contacting before making payment of any ransom: • • • •

The OFAC Advisory

In response to the growing frequency, cost and damage caused by cybercriminals launching ransomware attacks against U.S. interests, the OFAC advisory significantly notes the following:

OFAC has designated a number of malicious cyber criminals under its cyber sanctions program. U.S. persons are generally prohibited from engaging in transactions, directly or indirectly, with individuals or entities on OFAC’s Specially Designated Nationals and Blocked Persons List (SDN List), other blocked persons, and those covered by comprehensive country or region embargoes. Sanctions may be imposed, not just on the cyber threat actors, but also on others who materially assist, sponsor, or provide financial, material, or technological support for

the threat actors’ criminal activities. Paying ransom emboldens cyber criminals to continue to engage in such activities.

The Joint Advisory The CISA/FBI/HHS joint advisory reflects the government’s concern that cyber-attacks against hospitals and other healthcare providers are gaining in frequency during the pandemic. This comes at a time where hospitals and health care providers are

already burdened by pandemic related stresses. The advisory seeks to educate hospitals and healthcare providers of the technical details behind these recent attacks, including providing the reader with indicators of compromise including commonly used directories in Windows, as well as file names and plugins. The advisory warns that cybercriminals use malware, which is frequently deployed via phishing campaigns. The advisory explains that these malwares are deployed when emails with malicious links or malicious attachments are opened and installed in the victim’s computer. The malware thus installed is then used to deploy ransomware. The advisory focuses on the Ryuk ransomware which has been used with growing frequency in the last month. The Ryuk ransomware uses tools native to windows, to move within a victim’s network. Once deployed, Ryuk encrypts data, seeks to disable any back-ups and uninstall security applications that might prevent the ransomware from executing. In the case of Ryuk, the advisory states that ransom note is either delivered with the ransomware or the demand is made with the first contact with the cyber criminals. The advisory includes a number of security measures that the health care sector should be employing to protect itself from these attacks. These measures include, but are not limited to, the following: • • • • • • •

Conducting a gap assessment and patching any vulnerabilities in your business continuity plans to ensure that essential functions will be available through a cyber-attack; Patch operating systems as soon as updates are released; Regularly change passwords and avoid reusing passwords for different accounts; Use multi-factor authentication wherever possible; Audit user accounts with administrative privileges and configure access controls with the least privilege necessary; Identify critical assets, such as electronic medical record systems, and create back-ups of these systems that are housed offline from the network; Set antivirus and antimalware solutions to update automatically and run scans regularly.

If you have been attacked by ransomware, it is important to engage counsel experienced in cybersecurity, sanctions compliance and working with law enforcement. At RMF, we provide you with an informed, experienced and a confident partner in navigating this rapidly evolving area.
