Ransonware Attacks and How to Deal with Them

10/15/21  Back

Our October 15th meeting, which was a Zoom call, focused on the surge in ransomware attacks on healthcare organizations. 

Ransomware attacks are increasingly common against hospitals, physician groups and other healthcare organizations. Our primary speaker was Gina Greenwood, who is the co-chair of the Nelson Mullins Data Breach Response and Investigation Team. Gina has a 20-year career in data privacy and healthcare law and works out of the firm’s Atlanta office.  She led a discussion on the types of ransomware attacks that are occurring, how they are affecting the healthcare industry, how an organization can prevent them, and how they can respond if they experience an attack.  Gina’s bio can be viewed at Nelson Mullins - Gina Ginn Greenwood, JD, CIPP/US.  She was joined by Brian Gallagher, a published author on ransomware who worked on data security for the Secret Service, and Richard Singerman, PhD, Vice President for Clinical Research, DayToDay Health, who shared some examples of ransomware attacks and moderated a discussion of the topic.
