Product Description

Ensure Compliance with HIPAA, FDA and FBI Guidance on Cybersecurity and Ransomware Attacks

The “WannaCry” ransomware attack program caused a global meltdown for users of Microsoft Windows. Cybersecurity attacks like it can be very profitable for the culprits and extremely costly for manufacturers and users. Hackers demand money (bitcoins) for decryption of software that they “hold hostage.” The darknet market continues to sell these attack malware packages, and you can even find maps online of attacks being launched at this very moment.

Ransomware can shut down an entire software system, including those that support utility grids, banking systems and healthcare institutions. Weak cybersecurity programs and vicious ransomware attacks cost manufacturers and users billions of dollars each year. Costs include HIPAA fines, recovery efforts, recalls and the loss of customers who are afraid to use their devices or standalone software. Perhaps worse, product liability becomes an area ripe for costly litigation. The FDA and FBI have both acknowledged, as you should, that there is no magic bullet to prevent ransomware attacks.

Every day, healthcare providers bargain to have access to their own software system. The vulnerabilities and the consequence will only get worse over time, and the most important thing you can do is have a strong cybersecurity policy in place. Join this session, where expert speaker Casper E. Uldriks will discuss how to create that policy, and how you can manage ransomware attacks in your organization.
