Join us for an in-depth investigation of the “increased and imminent threat” by cybercrime organizations tied to ransomware. Last week, the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), the FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) issued an announcement that they had “credible information of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers.” They issued this warning urging healthcare providers to ensure they take timely and reasonable precautions to protect their networks from these threats, typically resulting in malware/ransomware attacks.  

In this webinar, ClearDATA Founder and CPSO Chris Bowen will lead an insightful examination of what we know – and what we don’t – about the most recent threats. He will also discuss:

  • Analysis of the anatomy and psychology of a ransomware attack
  • The ways in which different forms of ransomware work
  • How to shore up providers’ defenses against the imminent threats
  • Ways to detect a compromise
  • An extensive open Q&A

The U.S. government’s warning has been released on the heels of a quarter in which the U.S. saw a dramatic rise in cybersecurity incidents – particularly across healthcare where almost 10 million records were compromised in a single month. These bad actors are choosing this time to ramp up as our nation’s providers battle a third wave of COVID-19, which has strained resources to the breaking point.  

Don’t miss this opportunity for an insightful and timely discussion with one of the industry’s leading experts.
