Ransomware Realities for Healthcare: Cloud Backup and Security Answers

With the healthcare industry experiencing a dramatic increase in the volume of successful ransomware attacks, it is critical that organizations upgrade their security policies and approach.

This means understanding the evolving cyberattack landscape and developing effective strategies to protect the integrity of systems, applications, and data. A critical aspect of that strategy is proactively identifying employee email credentials that have been compromised. In our 2016 benchmark study of healthcare firms, Xtium and ID Agent recently found that 65% of firms analyzed have employees with visibly compromised accounts. These findings illustrate the need for ongoing monitoring as well as 100% reliable and responsive business continuity solutions.

The urgency stems from the fact that stolen health records are worth more than 10 times the value of stolen credit card numbers. The FBI recommends combating these cyber-threats by establishing a solid business continuity plan which includes the regular creation of secure, isolated data backups. 

This presentation will a) explore the common misperceptions and security holes that can lead to ransomware vulnerability, b) discuss the study results and the measurable ongoing threat represented by compromised email accounts, c) compare the various alternatives for responding to cyberattacks, d) explain the pros and cons of cloud-based security and backup strategies, and e) provide real-world case study examples of how recent ransomware attacks have been quickly and successfully resolved.

  • Privacy vs. Security: Balancing Vulnerability Awareness & Incident Prevention Recorded: Oct 14 2016 59 mins
    Keith Moulsdale, Partner with Whiteford Taylor Preston LLP, Tim Vogel: CEO & CISO, Xtium; Kevin Lancaster, CEO, ID Agent
    Join us for this timely discussion with privacy and data security experts. With ever looming environmental threats such as of ransomware, data theft, denial-of- service attacks, every organization and every industry must be focused on IT security. However, there is a delicate balance and frequent conflicts between the idea of information privacy and security.

    How much individual privacy can be expected in an inter-connected world? How much should be sacrificed for the sake of maximizing corporate security? And where (if anywhere) can the lines between personal and corporate be drawn? How do these issue impact policies, training and security surrounding even the most simple of business communication tools: email.

    This presentation will provide an overview of the privacy vs. security challenges and explore specifically how these issues are impacting the issue of user email credentials and email vulnerabilities. This is especially critical given that emails are the number one contributor to data breaches. In fact, 63% of breaches in the US last year were the result of a compromised email credential.

    We will then a) discuss common misperceptions and security holes that can lead to ransomware and other malware vulnerabilities, b) compare the various alternatives for proactively addressing these vulnerabilities, and c) discuss strategies for preventing and responding to cyberattacks.
