Here is our latest press release on our new Ransomware Resilience product!

The COVID-19 pandemic has turned ransomware into a household name. Hospitals, clinics and long-term care facilities navigate a daily maze of maintaining easily accessible patient care records while avoiding the cybersecurity pitfalls so many in their industry have already encountered. Hackers understand the healthcare industry. They recognize that the sector has been strained in both finances and emotion throughout the COVID​-19 pandemic, and they are using this opportunity to ramp up attacks. In fact, the increase in the number of ransomware attacks over the course of 2020 has risen by 715%, compared with just last year alone, according to newly released data from Bitdefender’s Mid-Year Threat Landscape Report 2020.

There is no doubt that dealing with a ransomware attack during the COVID-19 pandemic is a nightmare scenario, but with struggle comes resiliency. BlueOrange Compliance is a North American firm that is a well-respected thought leader on cybersecurity and HIPAA compliance. Over the past few months, BlueOrange clients have asked at an alarming rate for help in the area of cybersecurity and specifically ransomware. In response, BlueOrange has created the most in-depth product in the ransomware defense space: the Ransomware Resilience Assessment. This service will help plan, guide, and implement changes into an organization that will lower the fundamental risk if and when a ransomware attack occurs. “The goal here is to make a target company less susceptible to the initial attack and less vulnerable to a successful one,” says John DiMaggio BlueOrange CEO. “We have found that with proper planning and execution, a ransomware attack can go from being a disaster to a manageable event.” If ransomware is a concern for you like it is for so many other business and IT leaders, contact BlueOrange Compliance for a free risk assessment evaluation.
