Emotet Malware Case Study – Municipal Government
Municipalities responsible for both large and small communities are often a target of cyber attackers because they are networked to key infrastructure and transmit sensitive financial data. One mid-sized municipality came under a sophisticated attack when an email-based phishing campaign gave the attacker access to 1,400 end points. A trojan was deposited within the system that was able to mutate inside the system, transmitting from endpoint to endpoint undetected by existing security controls.
The BlueVoyant team was brought in and identified, remediated, and handled the problem to allow the organization to keep running while preventing future attacks.
