4 Ways to Protect and Recover from Ransomware Attacks

Ransomware has become an easy source of revenue for cyber criminals, and the number of ransomware incidents targeting healthcare is on the rise. When a successful attack occurs, healthcare organizations lose access to critical electronic files, putting patient care in question. To restore access, organizations are faced with the decision to pay the ransom – with the hope that the files are actually released; or, attempt an adhoc recovery, with no guarantee that current data can be reproduced.

  • Implementing best practices to protect your data
  • Employing effective backup strategies
  • Educating your staff on how to best protect critical data
