Preparing for Cyberattacks with Northwell Health

Since the start of the pandemic, foreign based ransomware gangs have dramatically increased targeting of U.S. hospitals and health systems and their mission critical service providers - with many becoming victim of high impact ransomware attacks. These attacks have disrupted hospital business operations, delayed health care delivery and risked patient safety - not only for the victim organization but also for interconnected providers on a regional basis. It is essential that health care organizations understand the current cyber risk landscape and understand that high impact ransomware attacks will disrupt every business, clinical and operational function in the organization – but they can also brace for impact, and prepare for recovery. Join us to hear to insights from health care cybersecurity experts, including our own John Riggi, AHA’s National Advisor for cybersecurity and risk, who spent nearly 30 years as a highly decorated veteran of the FBI and now serves as National Advisor for Cybersecurity and Risk at the American Hospital Association and their 5000+ member hospitals. John and his expert colleagues will discuss how hospitals and health systems can create a stronger cybersecurity posture to protect their expanded networks, their data, and most importantly, their patients and the communities they serve.
