Topic: Your Health Held Hostage: What Ransomware Means for Patients

Cybersecurity, privacy, compliance, and risk management have become top global priorities for healthcare as the industry increasingly faces crippling supply chain and ransomware attacks. Healthcare is a component of critical infrastructure and a top target of such attacks, yet the industry is struggling to maintain adequate data security and privacy with elevated risk of breaches and reputational damage. Hospitals, medical practices, and outpatient facilities have been the victims of large-scale ransomware attacks since 2016. The adverse impacts from ransomware to patients can range from inconveniences for rescheduling appointments to delays in critical care and treatment. Some reports and lawsuits have even cited pediatric and adult patient deaths that were brought on, in part, by ransomware outages at hospitals. This talk will address who are the cybercriminals behind ransomware attacks and what are their motives, the latest ransomware attacks and methods, ransomware impacts to patient safety and clinical operations, patient perception of ransomware and its impact on choice of provider, new federal and global regulations and legislation aimed tackling ransomware, and ransomware incident response best practices

Topic: What Data Will Get Leaked? It Depends on the Ransomware Group

Different ransomware groups show distinct preferences for what data to leak, according to a Rapid7 study of two years of extortion leak sites. Different types of information create different pressures on a company. Leaked personal information, either of employees or clients, can create arduous notification requirements, anger among an important group, and risk of class action lawsuits. Financial information creates pressure from investors and the potential embarrassment of business information coming out a company intended to keep secret. While the attacks rarely disclosed intellectual property, that may have more to do with the industries most likely to be targeted than the whims of the actor.

We have all heard that threats are evolving, and it is a constant battle to keep up with them. It is a topic of heated debate, with a number of different technologies and approaches claiming effectiveness. How can you detect and respond to modern threats? In this talk, Rapid7 will discuss the evolution of threats, including how they have changed and (just as important) how they have not changed, providing strategies for building, and operating an effective response force to help protect your organization, with a few pointers for specific tools and techniques.
