VA HIMSS Privacy & Security SIG Webinar: Ransomware
June 3, 2021
Ransomware continues to have a major impact on healthcare organizations, and is expected to be the most significant cyber threat in 2021. But how familiar are you with effects of a ransomware event on your organization? Are you prepared for the extensive compliance, legal, privacy, technology, and operational impacts?
Come join Virginia HIMSS for an informative panel presentation on the effects of ransomware. Rather than deconstruct the technical attacks and their associated cyber defenses, we’ll instead focus on the business ramifications of ransomware, and how to prepare for such an event.
