Ransomware is back with a vengeance, impacting health care organizations like yours around the globe. While it appeared ransomware cases might be decreasing for a brief time, these incidents rose dramatically over the past year. This increase in malicious activity has serious business ramifications — from increasing downtime to causing revenue loss. Ransomware attacks also can impact a hospital’s ability to treat patients.

In this webinar, the American Hospital Association’s Senior Advisor for Cybersecurity and Risk will share an overview of cybersecurity. KnowBe4’s security awareness advocate will cover some of the emerging trends in ransomware. You’ll learn about the recent highly targeted attack vectors and what you can do to prepare before an attack.

  • How to detect potentially threatening phishing and social engineering emails.
  • Actionable steps to take if your organization does become a victim.
