Dimension Data, an African born global systems integrator and managed services provider, is offering Incident Response Remediation assistance at no cost to UAE hospitals combatting the pandemic following a significant spike in COVID-19 themed cyberattacks on the healthcare sector.
Dimension Data’s service will enable affected UAE hospitals to rapidly restore operations after a successful cyberattack and thus continue to deliver critical services to patients.
Public and private hospitals as well as acute care hospitals, urgent care clinics, community health centres and other emergency care settings, are all eligible to 40-hours of incident response support, at no cost, on the condition that they are directly providing care to COVID-19 patients.
“The incredible rate at which the virus has spread has overwhelmed the healthcare sector. Dealing with the impact of the virus is challenging enough without the added complication of critical operations being derailed by cyberattacks,” said Redouane Gaouar, Director Go-to-Market Practices and Strategic Partner Alliances at Dimension Data Middle East.
“By offering our incident response service at no cost , our intension is to get front line doctors and nurses as well as all supporting functions trying to work in a compromised hospital, back to saving lives as quickly as possible.”
