Dirty Encryption: The Scourge of Healthcare Ransomware

September 25, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Wednesday, September 25 at 1 p.m. ET/ 10 a.m. PT

Not all encryption is meant to protect your data; sometimes, it can be used against you to hold your systems hostage. One use of encryption that has been wreaking havoc on healthcare networks is ransomware.

Ransomware, which can seize patient files and lock up critical communications until a ransom is paid, continues to be on the rise in 2019 with business costs skyrocketing more than $75 billion per year (Source: Datto). The effects of ransomware are deep and wide – impacting not only business costs, but patient safety and trust in your brand. With 75% of companies infected with ransomware running up-to-date endpoint protection, it’s on more than just your end users to protect your data (Source: Sophos).

In this webinar, join Armor’s Head of Threat Resistance Chris Hinkley and Director of Customer Compliance Mike Annand to learn how healthcare companies can thwart cybercriminals and ensure HIPAA compliance.

Key takeaways include:

  • Review recent high-profile attacks against healthcare providers and vendors
  • How cybercriminals are infecting servers and workstations through phishing and network vulnerabilities
  • Effects of ransomware on your business, security team, and compliance audits
  • How to thwart digital kidnappers before ransomware costs thousands to remediate
