The Canadian Nurses Association Cybersecurity Incident

The Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) has disclosed a cybersecurity incident, but will not confirm reports it was a ransomware attack. In an email to IT World Canada, Alexandre Bourassa, the association’s public affairs lead, wrote: “We can confirm having experienced an IT security incident on April 3, 2023 which impacted some of our systems. The incident did not impact our operations.”

Ransomware Group Involvement

Brett Callow, a British Columbia-based threat analyst, first reported that the Snatch ransomware group now lists CNA as a victim on May 22nd.

Recent Ransomware Attacks

The Recent Ransomware Attacks (RRA) site acts as a watchtower, providing you with near real-time ransomware tracking of attacks, groups and their victims. Given threat actors’ overarching, lucrative success so far, ransomware attacks have become the most ubiquitous, and financially and informationally impactful cyber threat to businesses and organizations today.

The site’s data is generated based on hosting choices of real-world threat actors, and a handful of other trackers. While sanitization efforts have been taken, we cannot guarantee 100% accuracy of the data. Attack updates will be made as source data is reported by reputable sources. By viewing, accessing, or using RRA you acknowledge you are doing so at your own risk.
