HIPAA and Ransomware: Protect Against Attacks and Violation Penalties

April 2 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

$139

Overview:

Ransomware has been around for quite some time. The challenge for the ransomer has been to stay anonymous while receiving payment.

That has been difficult historically because methods of payment (credit card, check, paypal) require personal identification. With the advent of crypto-currency – bitcoin, ransomware has had a rebirth of popularity. Crypto-currency is completely anonymous.

Payments can be made, or demanded, without any knowledge of who is paying or receiving payment. As the payment side has been simplified, so has the software side. There are services to supply ransomware software.

Now all it takes is knowing one want to target. Large hospitals have been targeted, but private practices have not been a popular target. We believe that can quickly change. Practices of about 5 doctors and under generally are prime targets for ransomware.
