PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - December 5 - 7, 2016
Ransomware attacks frequently appear in the news, especially in healthcare where entities suffering an attack are obligated to report it as a likely breach.

This session will address recent HIPAA-based guidance regarding ransomware and assess how policies and procedures should be modified to consider the continually evolving threat presented by ransomware.
