Medical Care Under Stress and Under Cyber Attack: The Correlation to Excess Deaths

Monday, December 13, 2021
11 - 12 p.m. Eastern; 10 – 11 a.m. Central; 8 - 9 a.m. Pacific

Join us for this extremely important and timely discussion with Dr. Reuven Pasternack and Joshua Corman, cyber experts from the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) to discuss the CISA report “Provide Medical Care is in Critical Condition: Analysis and Stakeholder Decision Support to Minimize Further Harm.” In this discussion moderated by John Riggi, AHA Senior Advisor for Cybersecurity and Risk, the group will discuss the groundbreaking qualitative and quantitative analysis, which models and measures hospital strain associated with excess deaths, as well as the effect of ransomware and the impact such a strain can have on a hospital and region, further contributing to excess deaths. This report tends to corroborate what to many is intuitive - ransomware attacks on hospitals may disrupt care delivery, risk patient safety and are threat to life crimes.
