Overview :
In recent years, healthcare institutions and other organizations have been bombarded from every direction by hackers. The flashiest of these threats come in the form of ransomware threats ? where hackers lock users out of their information systems and threaten to destroy that information unless they are paid some exorbitant amount of money.
Even if an organization can manage to pull together the money to meet the demand, the damage to its brand alone could be devastating. In this webinar, Vonne will guide attendees through the maze of regulations that govern the confidentiality and security of protected health information and other sensitive business information, and explore tools organizations can use to protect themselves from ransomware and similar threats.
Particular emphasis will be placed on the recent guidance on ransomware from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services Office for Civil Rights on ransomware.
