Cybercrime is impacting all industries around the globe -- with hospitals a prime target. The impact of Ransomware is often devastating. Recently, WannaCry infected more than 200,000 computers across 150 countries with 16 major hospitals closing down across the UK, putting lives at risk.
Besides Ransomware, Insider Threats are equally damaging to healthcare organizations. More than 25% of breaches come from internal resources, which often go undetected for months, years even. Traditional security measures are often-times not intelligent enough to detect malware and prevent lateral spread. Malware can also infiltrate the backup, where it can sit formant for months -- making recovery more difficult. One way to mitigate risk is to isolate the backup environment by creating an airgap, and leveraging outside resources for recovery versus internal resources that might be part of the initial breach. During this Brain Weave session, we will discuss:
· Limitations of traditional security solutions when dealing with modern-day cyber threats.
· Implementing a multi-layered security strategy from edge to core to cloud
· Creating a robust response and recovery plan with isolated/airgap solution
