Vendor compromises data of 808000 Singapore blood donors

Singapore public health agency face another data security lapse.

Before the next WannaCry or NotPetya cyber-attack strikes, potentially resulting in widespread damage for which few are actually prepared, law enforcement in the EU have established an incident response protocol, according to a Europol press release.

“To prepare for major cross-border cyber-attacks, an EU Law Enforcement Emergency Response Protocol has been adopted by the Council of the European Union. The Protocol gives a central role to Europol’s European Cybercrime Centre (EC3) and is part of the EU Blueprint for Coordinated Response to Large-Scale Cross-Border Cybersecurity Incidents and Crises,” Europol wrote.

“It serves as a tool to support the EU law enforcement authorities in providing immediate response to major cross-border cyber-attacks through rapid assessment, the secure and timely sharing of critical information and effective coordination of the international aspects of their investigations.”
