Fighting Cyber Threats in Healthcare Through Ransomware Resilience

Wednesday, April 19 at 7:15 AM - 8:30 AM CT
West Building, Level 4 | W471 A

The healthcare industry is under attack. Between 2021 and 2022, there was an uptick in ransomware attacks on medical entities in North America and Europe. The industry experienced 556 data breaches in 2022, mainly involving ransomware operations. With ransomware, threat actors encrypt victim data and disrupt operations. This growing threat has cascading impacts downstream, upstream and across patients. There is hope. At the continuum of technology and experience, the metaverse can help build resilience and survive an attack. This session will explore how your organization can develop a ransomware response playbook. This response plan will answer questions such as who to call when an attack occurs and what information you should share with customers, employees and other stakeholders. We’ll cover how to contain the damage and expedite the path to recovery. Breakfast and refreshments will be served.
