Business Continuity After a Ransomware Attack

October 15, 2018
11:30am - 12:15pm
America Ballroom

Imagine that hackers hit your organization with ransomware and gain full access to your system. Are you prepared to respond quickly and effectively to maintain business continuity and protect patient safety? Or will you go down like the Titanic?

In this tabletop exercise, seasoned business continuity experts set the stage, alerting the “healthcare facility” that it has been hit by ransomware. Then over the next 40 minutes they’ll take attendees on a simulated exercise, outlining the critical steps required to respond successfully to the attack and maintain or restore business continuity as fast as possible.

As the speakers will make clear: Disaster planning is the difference between having the essential tools at your fingertips or not.

Key discussion points

  • How to proactively assess your facility and your business continuity program.
  • Discuss elements of an effective business continuity plan - people, processes, technology
  • How to operationalize the core elements of a business continuity plan.
  • Review CMS’s new emergency preparedness requirements for Medicare and Medicaid providers.
