Ransomware: Healthcare in the Crosshairs

A recent study by Comparitech revealed that in the last several years, there have been more than 500 successful ransomware attacks impacting nearly 10,000 healthcare providers. It is estimated these attacks have bled the US economy by tens of billions of dollars, but more concerning is the risk to human life.


A study by Ponemon, which surveyed 653 IT and IT security practitioners, revealed that 46% noted increased mortality rates and 38% noted more complications in medical procedures following an attack. Criminal ransomware groups know that the impact of an attack against healthcare organizations does not just disrupt operations, it directly affects the lives of their patients and puts the entire organization at risk. Legacy security tools (EPP/EDR/XDR) were not designed to address the unique threat that ransomware presents. As a result, we keep seeing destructive ransomware attacks impact healthcare organizations.


In this webinar, attendees learned how ransomware impacts the healthcare sector and how a dedicated anti-ransomware solution will fill the coverage gaps threat actors exploit to better protect healthcare providers and their patients.
