Healthcare has become criminals most lucrative target. Why? Because medical records are worth 10 times that of credit cards. The recent digitization of the healthcare industry has rapidly expanded the attack surface to include electronic healthcare records, patient portals, IoT-enabled medical devices and more.
Imagine losing access to all of your patient data — only to find out you are being extorted by criminals who require payment to get it back. This type of attack can disrupt life and death technologies that medical practitioners rely on to perform their jobs. Ransomware adds up to a significant threat to the healthcare industry.
But, there are steps you can take to actively reduce the number of ransomware infections across your organization. Cisco is on the forefront of helping our healthcare customers against various versions of ransomware.
Hear from Barry Fisher, Cisco Cloud Security expert to learn the simplest way for healthcare security practitioners to stay ahead of ransomware attacks. You’ll learn how to:
- Reduce ransomware infections across your organization
- Identify the infrastructure used by attackers to connect, control and transfer the encryption keys
