Preventing Ransomware in Healthcare

Presented by

Matt Mellen, Security Market Architect, Palo Alto Networks

About this talk

The business model behind crimeware has changed. In recent years, the price of stolen records has plummeted, compelling cyber attackers to look for new sources of income. Many attackers have turned to ransomware due to recent advances in attack distribution, anonymous payments, and the ability to reliably encrypt and decrypt data. Now, barely a week passes without another healthcare organization experiencing a ransomware event. These events impact the quality of care clinical facilities can provide, costs organizations money in remediation efforts, and hurts their reputation as competent providers of care. But while as scary as ransomware can be, with new variations coming out all the time, there are straightforward steps organizations can take to prevent this threat. In this presentation, Matt Mellen, a former Information Security Lead at a hospital, will discuss practical steps healthcare organizations can take to stop ransomware. Drawing from his first-hand experience responding to ransomware, combined with recommendations from the FBI, Matt will cover practical steps healthcare organizations can take on systems and network devices to prevent exposure to this rampant attack. Palo Alto Networks invite you to attend a webinar where you can learn how to protect your healthcare organization from ransomware attacks. We will cover: - How the most current variants of ransomware work - How to prevent successful ransomware attacks in Healthcare Ransomware Prevention Recommendations:
