Ransomware: The Need for a Business Impact Analysis

Ransomware: The Need for a Business Impact Analysis

You see the news: how many healthcare entities are struck by ransomware. But how many of them conducted business impact analyses before they were victims? Too few, says Cathie Brown of Clearwater. She discusses the value of doing a BIA before the crisis strikes.

"It is a troubling time for healthcare, particularly with ransomware," says, Brown, VP of consulting services. "I heard a report yesterday that there is an estimated ransomware attack every eight minutes. Healthcare is the top target [and] has been for a while now."

Brown says the BIA not only will help dictate ransomware response, but it will assist in any type of crisis decision-making.

In this eBook Brown & ISMG discuss:

  • Troubling ransomware trends;
  • The value of conducting a BIA specifically for ransomware;
  • How to operationalize the learnings from a BIA.
