Healthcare, Wannacry Again?

Improving Patient Outcomes through Technology
May 21, 2018
Health Care Organization Attack
 
     Wannacry was one of the most damaging malware virus attacks of recent time. 
 
     This month marks the one-year anniversary of the attack. We would like to take a moment to remind you of the severity of the attack and why attacks like it keep happening daily.

Microsoft Exploited
     
 
     Over 200,000 health care systems running outdated Windows OS based machines were impacted across 150 different countries with total financial damages between $250 million and $5 billion. 
 
     Those are just estimates though, the long term damage is a company’s reputation. 
 
     Ransomware, or any malware attack that causes operations to cease is a terrible burden. Health care organizations must scramble to get back on their feet and simultaneously have to worry about potential HIPAA fines and required remediation’s.
 
     Sadly some of the affected care based organization did not have strong enough back up protocols to recover from the event. 
 
 
Frontline Experience
     Just recently a client of ours was hit with Ransomware via a phishing attack, we don’t manage their security only backups, and they fully recovered their data within a few short hours and were back to business as if nothing happened. 
 
     Ask us today about how easy our backup utility is and how you can get backing up today!
