Digital risk-protection provider GroupSense, announced a new deal with a major U.S. city to provide its COVID-19 Vaccine Threat Protection offering. The first-of-its-kind service offering uses cyber threat monitoring to protect the city and its millions of residents against COVID-19 vaccine misinformation and disinformation, as well as supply chain disruptions from cyberattacks, including ransomware attacks.
The protection package leverages a team of analysts using both human and machine intelligence techniques to monitor, alert, and take down cyber threats against the COVID-19 vaccine rollout. An initial assessment provides a city’s digital risk profile including structure, assets, vulnerabilities, and requirements, to provide advice on how to reduce risk and monitor for threats throughout the entire vaccination rollout. GroupSense then uses a four-stage model, including an assessment, pre-preparation, continuous threat intelligence monitoring, and a post-vaccination communication plan regarding findings and results.
