The federal government says the number of healthcare data breaches rose 196% in 2019. Ransomware attacks are increasingly the method of choice, and yet healthcare IT security leaders overwhelmingly say they lack the staffing resources needed to safeguard their systems.
Last week cybercriminals targeted hundreds of U.S. hospitals with a sophisticated strain of ransomware. Hospitals in New York and Oregon have already confirmed they’ve been attacked, with no access to their networks. In this webinar, we will discuss the recent cyber threats, as well as a few high-profile ransomware attacks at hospitals, including one in Germany that led to the death of a patient, have dragged the issue of healthcare cybersecurity into the spotlight. It’s not a pretty picture.
Watch the On-Demand webinar to discover:
- What we know about the attack on hundreds of U.S. hospitals and other recent high-profile attacks
- Best practices in healthcare IT security
- Where, and how, hospitals and other provider organizations fall short
