Atlantic Data Forensics Provides Digital Forensics/Incident Response Services to US-based Healthcare Organizations

Wednesday, April 29, 2020

In response to an unprecedented increase in ransomware and data breach activity during the COVID-19 pandemic, Atlantic Data Forensics, Inc. has announced that they will provide Digital Forensics/Incident Response (DFIR) services to US-based healthcare organizations and first responders whose COVID-19 related patient care and other frontline systems have been compromised by cybercriminal activity.

During this time of disruption, emergency expansion and resource limitation for healthcare providers dealing with the impact of COVID-19, cybercriminals have stepped up their attacks through phishing and probing networks in an effort to profit from disabling hospital computer systems through ransomware, stealing patient healthcare data, or furthering financial fraud schemes.

“After looking at current cyber threat intelligence and our own surge in incident response activity, I realized the company could help by providing free services to not only our healthcare clients that are under increased attack, but to all healthcare organizations currently on the frontlines of this battle” said Brian Dykstra, CEO of Atlantic Data Forensics. He added, “I chose to present this offering to the healthcare community because, like many other people, I’ve been challenged in trying to find a way to contribute and directly assist health care professionals during this pandemic.”

Located in Elkridge, Atlantic Data Forensics has a team of experienced computer incident responders and computer forensic examiners that provide services to many of the nation’s largest businesses, law firms, government agencies, and non-profit organizations.
