Ransomware Attacks – Will You Be the Next Unsuspecting Victim?

DE Webinar December 6, 2021 CA: 01-5933-21150 AGD: 550 Code: RAN12621 Over the last year, ransomware attacks have been decimating the dental community and shutting down practices of all sizes for 10+ days. Over 75% of the time, ransomware attacks result in the theft of patient data and costs often exceed $200,000. If the ransom is not paid, all your patient information and images are auctioned for sale on the Dark Web. Cloud backups, firewalls and anti-virus software are not the answer…yet 90% of practices across the US are relying on this technology to protect their practices. Your firewall and anti-virus software will not stop data theft and/or most ransomware strains. Presented by: Gart Salman As the CEO and co-founder of Black Talon Security, Gary is dedicated to data security and understanding the latest trends in the industry, particularly as they relate to the dental industry. He has decades of experience in software development and computer IT and developed one of the very first Cloud-based healthcare systems. As a sought-after speaker and writer, Gary also lectures nationally on cybersecurity threats and their impact on the healthcare industry. He has lectured and trained tens of thousands of practices across the U.S. on how to maintain “best practices” in cybersecurity and has been featured in over 70 national publications and news stories in the medical, dental, legal and financial industries. In addition, Gary has over 17 years as an instructor at West Point and is involved in law enforcement. He is also a member in InfraGard. Black Talon has been called in to assist with some of the largest distributed ransomware attacks in U.S. history which resulted in millions of dollars of ransom payments and tens of millions of dollars in damages to the victims. In every instance, all data was recovered and successfully decrypted. Black Talon is also an expert in preventative measures as well as incident response. https://www.dentaleconomics.com/home/webinar/14214085/carestream-dental-december-6th-webinar-ransomware-attacks-will-you-be-the-next-unsuspecting-victim-learn-how-to-intercept-block-and-stop-this-from-happening-to-you?sti=DACE
