How Healthcare Institutions Can Stop Bad Actors from Capitalizing on COVID

Bad actors never miss an opportunity to exploit a crisis and nowhere is this more obvious than in the recent spate of ransomware attacks targeting US healthcare institutions – right in the middle of the largest pandemic the world has seen in over a century, no less.

Open Systems has been in the news sounding a clarion call for healthcare institutions to consider integrating managed detection and response (MDR) into their IT strategies. Check out the articles below to learn more from our CEO, Jeff Brown, and our General Manager of Born in the Cloud, Paul Keely, about how your organization can overcome institutional and legacy challenges to future-proof your cybersecurity strategy:

COVID-19, and the subsequent sharp spike in critical care intake and reporting requirements, has introduced significant stress to healthcare networks that were already stretched thin by ongoing resource constraints, evolving data compliance requirements, managing IoT-enabled equipment (while also balancing the connectivity needs of legacy equipment) in today’s “connected everything” environment, the migration to remote / telehealth services...and the list goes on. Moreover, having your data held hostage – and reverting to using paper to keep records, as one breached hospital was recently forced to do – can negatively impact an organization’s ability to serve both its patients and its workforce…and can cost lives.

For healthcare institutions, the bottom line is this: Technology alone isn’t going to save your organization. It takes more than that. In order to meet today’s cybersecurity challenges, you need to find a partner (not just a vendor) that is recognized for its deep knowledge, 24x7 “eyes-on” network monitoring, and commitment to stopping attacks before they permeate your network and stop you from focusing on what you do best.

MDR allows your organization to take advantage or AI-enabled detection and response backed by hands-on experts. And that means you can stop attacks before they stop you.
