Cybersecurity Risk Assessment – Indianapolis (IN)

Risk Assessments Cybersecurity – Indianapolis (IN)

Many Indianapolis and Indiana businesses face various challenges when managing cybersecurity programs. This includes ever-evolving threats, human errors, misconfigurations, poor maintenance, and a lack of a formal cybersecurity plan. An organization is exposed to reputational damage, intellectual property theft, stolen data, and financial loss without adequate and updated protections. In fact, according to IBM’s Cost of a Data Breach Study, the average breach cost in 2023 was $4.5M. This figure reflects the loss potential and the importance of a comprehensive cybersecurity program.

The first step in evaluating your program is to conduct a cybersecurity risk assessment. It is designed to identify and test assets that could be impacted by an attack, including hardware, systems, customer/patient data, and intellectual property. It also looks for vulnerabilities due to poor cyber hygiene, cloud vulnerabilities, poor data management, and inadequate post-attack procedures. The resulting report provides insight into how to increase overall effectiveness.

Recent Indianapolis Cybersecurity Incidents

Indianapolis has recently experienced several significant cybersecurity incidents affecting various sectors. One of the most notable incidents involved Indiana University Health (IU Health), where a phishing attack led to unauthorized access to employee email accounts. This breach exposed sensitive information, prompting IU Health to enhance its cybersecurity measures and collaborate with law enforcement to investigate the incident.

Another significant incident occurred at the Indianapolis-based Eskenazi Health, which faced a ransomware attack in early 2024. The attack disrupted hospital operations and compromised patient data, leading to a costly recovery process and an extensive investigation to determine the full impact of the breach.

Additionally, the City of Indianapolis government experienced a cyberattack that targeted its public services infrastructure. This attack temporarily disrupted various city services, including online payment systems and public records access. The city worked with cybersecurity experts to restore services and improve its defenses against future attacks.
