Crime does not stop because of COVID-19. The increasing sophistication and frequency of ransomware, phishing, and hacking attacks mean that the health care industry is more vulnerable than ever to cybersecurity threats. On Feb. 11 from 1:30 to 3 p.m. (PT), CHA will host a webinar that will discuss firsthand hospital experience with attacks in late 2020 and how to safeguard patient care and protect operations.

During the complimentary, members-only webinar, three hospital CEOs will share what happened when their facilities became the victims of a ransomware attack and what they learned. John Riggi, the American Hospital Association’s senior advisor to cybersecurity and risk and former leader of the FBI Cyber Division’s national program, will offer recommendations for hospital executives and staff that can potentially deter an attack and proper ways to respond to one.
