Cybersecurity Alert: Ransomware Activity Targeting the Healthcare and Public Health Sector

The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI) have developed a cybersecurity alert related to an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers: "Alert (AA20-302A) Ransomware Activity Targeting the Healthcare and Public Health Sector." This advisory describes the tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) used by cybercriminals against targets in the Healthcare and Public Health Sector (HPH) to infect systems with Ryuk ransomware for financial gain. CISA, FBI, and HHS are sharing this information to provide warning to healthcare providers to ensure that they take timely and reasonable precautions to protect their networks from these threats.


To report suspicious or criminal activity related to information found in this Joint Cybersecurity Advisory, contact your local FBI field office at, or the FBI’s 24/7 Cyber Watch (CyWatch) at (855) 292-3937 or by e-mail at
