Securing COVID Vaccination Sites

Coffee with CISOs Episode 10

Our guest for this episode is Dylan Foos, a Senior Security Analyst at Accenture. Dylan and the rThreat team discuss what discoveries he has made regarding these attacks, who’s behind them, and steps being taken to secure these sites to protect the public.

Bring your favorite drink (doesn’t have to be coffee) and take a quick break to learn more about:

● Findings and observations made during web attacks
● The importance of input validation
● How to safeguard vaccination records

When we were registering for a vaccination shot, there was no input validation in the text fields so we were able to send a phish email through that vaccination [portal].

About the Webinar

With the recent global pandemic and the introduction of COVID-19 vaccination sign-up sites, most citizens have their Personal Health Information(PHI) on the web. It is more important than ever that we safeguard this medical information. In this webinar, we break down the recent efforts in monitoring, threat hunting, and penetration testing to further this. Input validation is one of the main focuses of cybersecurity teams dedicated to safeguarding medical information to prevent injections and denial of service attacks. Other vulnerabilities included the editing or cancellation of appointments and accessing private information due to the lack of security.
