Ransomware incidents have steadily increased in recent months, as hackers continue to improve the sophistication of their attack methods, while legacy technology and insider threats increase vulnerabilities throughout the sector. As many security leaders have noted, cybersecurity planning in the event of inevitable security incidents is crucial to reducing care disruptions and protecting patient safety. Proper disaster recovery and business continuity preparation is essential for organizations to reduce the risk of downtime and information loss, corruption, or theft as well as remaining compliant with federal and state regulation.
In this presentation, Northwell Health Senior Vice President & Chief Quality Officer Dr. Mark Jarrett will share insights into best practices for healthcare organizations to prepare for natural and man-made threats to health information.
