Why Should You Attend

Healthcare is the biggest target for Ransomware attacks in 2017. New types of Ransomware are particularly dangerous. They not only lock up your information system – they steal Protected Health Information (PHI). Covered Entities and Business Associates of all types and sizes are prime Ransomware targets because disruption of healthcare operations, even for a brief period, can result in catastrophic harm to patients. Criminal hackers don’t need to be sophisticated technology to mount a Ransomware attack – they simply trick employees to open a “phishing” email or click on an Internet link. Ransomware is the easiest and safest way for cyber-criminals to extort money from the Healthcare Industry.
A Ransomware attack on a Covered Entity or BA that encrypts PHI is presumed to be a HIPAA Breach according to the U. S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).
