Ransomware and Other Emerging Threats Within Healthcare Organizations

Presented by

Lee Kim, JD, CISSP, CIPP/US Director, Privacy & Security HIMSS North America

About this talk

The healthcare sector has been significantly impacted by ransomware in the last five years. Ransomware locks down computers, encrypts files, locks users out of their systems, and may disrupt patient care and business operations. A ransom is demanded for the safe return of the data by malicious actors. But, there is no guarantee that the data will be successfully recovered. Lee Kim, director of privacy and security for HIMSS North America shares how the ransomware threat has evolved over time, the current ransomware threat, and information on mitigating the threat. Lee will also share her predictions on what the healthcare and public health sector can expect in the future and the emergence of cryptojacking as a future threat.
