How Can You Protect Your Organization From Ransomware Attacks?

Learn the answer at a new Manatt webinar, “Ransomware Attacks in Healthcare: Preparing and Protecting Your Organization.”

Cybercrime Magazine predicts that global ransomware attacks will reach $11.5 billion in 2019 and that ransomware attacks will hit a business every 14 seconds by next year, with a new report revealing that 45% of ransomware attacks are in the healthcare sector.1

How can you prepare and protect your organization from the devastation of a ransomware attack? Manatt answers that question in a new webinar for Bloomberg BNA. During the program, you will discover:

  • The evolution of ransomware since it first appeared in 1989—and the newest threats organizations face today
  • Healthcare-specific details from Verizon’s Database Breach Investigations Report (DBIR), including a real-world case study
  • The most common vulnerabilities in healthcare organizations
  • The factors to consider when determining whether a ransomware incident is a reportable breach under the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), as well as under state laws—and the special challenges healthcare organizations face in managing the breach notification process
  • Strategies for minimizing risk in your own organization and when working with third-party vendors
  • How to create a robust disaster recovery plan, if an attack does occur
  • The emerging dangers that lie ahead—and what you can do to keep your organization safe.
