Healthcare Ransomware Attacks – Don’t Become a Statistic
February 27th, 2018 1:00PM ET
In 2017, ransomware rocked the healthcare industry. Six of the top ten HIPAA breaches reported to the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) stemmed from ransomware, and with cybercriminals becoming stealthier, more skilled, and zealous in their desire to breach corporate security defenses it's hard to see an end in sight. The healthcare industry is a prime target for ransomware attacks because organizations with health data, including third parties, are attacked often due to the high value of the potentially life-saving information they work with.
Join Erich Kron CISSP, Security Awareness Advocate at KnowBe4, for the Webinar, "Healthcare Ransomware Attacks - Don't Become a Statistic," where Erich will walk you through the steps your organization can take to get your users to identify phishing and ransomware attacks and turn them into your own "human firewall."
