Urgent Panel: Healthcare Ransomware – Are You Negligent or a Victim? Dissecting the Change Healthcare and Ascension Attacks

About this event

We’re all watching as Ascencion Healthcare is back to paper and pencil as they recover from a ransomware attack. In February, you watched Change Healthcare get taken for $22M in ransom payments alone, plus the hundreds of millions of dollars in costs to the national Healthcare industry. Now the White House is tossing around the question of whether these attacks are the result of negligence, or simply the inevitability that everyone will get hit at some point. What do you think?

Negligence in addressing cybersecurity can lead to severe consequences, including significant financial costs, potential criminal and/or civil action, and of course, compromised patient safety.

Join us Thursday for an Urgent Panel as we unpack the similarities between Change Healthcare and the Ascension ransomware attacks and dissect ways you may be held responsible for your (in)actions in the event of a ransomware attack at your organization.

It’s obvious that healthcare attacks are on the rise – no organization is immune. Hear from our panel of experts what you can learn from these attacks and how to bolster your defenses now so you can help your organization prepare for and recover faster from incidents.

Key takeaways include:

  • Compelling statistics and metrics you can take back to your c-suite and board
  • Top vulnerabilities to manage before you buy anything
  • The differences in liability between Due Care and Due Diligence
