How Healthcare Entities Can Avoid Cyber Attacks

How Healthcare Entities Can Avoid Cyber Attacks

Healthcare, more than any other industry, is increasingly in the crosshairs of attackers who seek to cause business disruption through evolving attacks such as ransomware. It's inevitable, frankly, that the vast majority of healthcare organizations will be diagnosed with ransomware. How must they prepare? What treatment is available for when they are struck?

FireEye's Dan McWhorter offers insight and strategies, including:

  • The size and scope of current attacks on healthcare entities;
  • Strategies and tools to help avoid being crippled by ransomware;
  • How organizations can harness threat intelligence in their defenses.


A surge in ransomware attacks on hospitals is driving healthcare organizations large and small to consider new and improved approaches to dealing with this evolving threat. In fact, one healthcare expert recently reported that one large East Coast health system turned away over 1 million ransomware emails in the month of March alone, more than any other industry. What can organizations do to avoid being the next victim - or the next big news headline?

Register for this session and get first-hand advice from Dan McWhorter, FireEye's Chief Intelligence Strategist. McWhorter is a member of the Department of Health and Human Services Health Care Industry Cybersecurity Task Force and has spent years analyzing cyberattacks on healthcare entities. In this informative webinar, McWhorter will provide you with case studies and first-hand advice on ways to leverage your threat intelligence - and prevent ransomware from victimizing your organization.
