Cyber Attacks Take Advantage of Vaccine Distribution and COVID-19 


Cyber Attacks Take Advantage of Vaccine Distribution and COVID-19 


Cyber criminals are attacking vaccine distribution logistics and supply chains for associated supplies. This comes on top of what started last year - the attacks on PPE supply chains and ransomware attacks on healthcare providers. It was the beginning of those attacks last year that motivated the creation of this webinar series.

⁠Tune in to our discussion on the current attack situation, what is being done in immediate response, and what we are doing to learn from this one to be better prepared for the next.

Co-Founder and Chief Strategy Officer, GroupSense

As the chief strategy officer and co-founder of GroupSense, Tom has played a vital role in shaping the company’s vision and executing on its growth strategies. Tom led the creation of TraceLight, the GroupSense analysis engine, which serves as the backbone of the company’s cyber-reconnaissance operations. The idea for TraceLight came several years ago when a discovery was made for a large credit card company. Its customers’ card numbers were being bought and sold in the open on the dark web. Tapping his 15 years of experience in cybersecurity with industry giants like NTT, Verizon Wireless and Integralis, Tom developed the first-generation cyber-reconnaissance engine that would become TraceLight, which saved his client tens of millions of dollars each year in fraud costs. Since then, TraceLight has helped GroupSense deliver similar value to Fortune 1000 companies and government organizations across risk areas including data breach detection, ransomware attack mitigation, insider malfeasance, mis/disinformation campaigns, supply chain security and more.
