On 14 May 2021, a [[Ireland’s Health Service Executive ransomware attack (2021)|ransomware attack targeted the Irish national healthcare service]] on both national and local levels, including several hospitals that had to cancel planned procedures. The day before, National Cyber Security Centre informed about a potential threat inside the Department of Health network, which spoiled the efforts of ransomware infiltration. The Department’s IT systems were preemptively shut down. The criminal investigation is focusing on the Wizard Spider gang that is operating from Saint Petersburg in Russia according to intelligence agencies. The Minister for Foreign Affairs of Ireland Simon Coveney said he has spoken to his Russian counterpart, Sergey Lavrov, about the cyber attack. Although most of the systems were operable a month later, its complete recovery may take up to 6 months.
