Topic Abstract:
It is the call that every security professional and executive dreads. The organization has just been hit with ransomware and everything has been locked down.

The cyber landscape has witnessed a dramatic shift from small crimes to large-scale ransomware attacks. Read the news and you will find stories of threat groups from around the world inflicting damage on large and small businesses alike, encrypting vital data and costing millions in recovery, lost revenue and reputation. Although the protection of the organization’s crown jewels has always been the focus of cyber security professionals, current attacks can halt business operations entirely and are causing cyber defenders to revamp their current strategies to compensate for the shift.

Given the growing likelihood that a ransomware attack will occur, businesses can’t afford to put all their trust on cyber-security measures to prevent attacks. While the traditional cyber defense mechanisms help in preventing conventional attacks, as the threat landscape continues to expand, businesses will need an all-encompassing strategy to help mitigate those risks. In short, they must become cyber resilient.

This discussion will explore the advancement of ransomware attacks and the impact that their disruptions have within the healthcare industry. Additionally, the importance of cyber resilience, how its prominence over the traditional cyber security approach as shifted strategy development and how organizations should treat cyber resilience as a matter of priority concern in their preparation for a ransomware attack.

Key Takeaways:

  • Understand the impact of ransomware in the healthcare industry.
  • Response challenges and areas to avoid before an attack.
  • Turning response efforts into cyber resilience: practical strategies to ensure operational recovery.
