Is Your Organization Prepared for a Ransomware Attack?

Posted on August 30, 2022 in Information Technology

Written by: Hall Render Advisory Services

Ransomware attacks on health care organizations have increased dramatically in 2022, costing organizations billions of dollars. Health care providers are being attacked by cybercriminals who encrypt their data and devices and demand monetary payment to make the data available again or prevent its further disclosure. As long as ransomware attacks remain lucrative, the frequency of such attacks are expected to continue to increase. Is it time to assess the effectiveness of your cyber incident response plan?

What’s at risk?

Without a workable recovery plan in place and an understanding of potential vulnerabilities in your backups, you could be without working applications for weeks following a ransomware attack. Cyberattacks can also lead to permanent loss of critical data and data integrity, public release of sensitive information, government investigations and penalties and private litigation, including class actions.
