“Ransomware Under the Microscope: A Closer Look”

Attendees of the Missouri Society of Health Care Attorneys personal membership group took a look at cybersecurity through the lens of a former healthcare industry CIO, CTO, senior IT audit manager, and IT risk management consultant at the Missouri Hospital Association Annual Conference.

Industry expert and PYA Principal Barry Mathis presented “Ransomware Under the Microscope: A Closer Look.” His presentation covered:

  • Specific ransomware strains and their behavior in different environments.
  • Behavioral-based endpoint protection versus signature-based protection and the impact on specific zero-day attacks.
  • Brief case studies of recent ransomware attacks on those who believed they were protected from such attacks.
