When an organization experiences a data breach, one would hope that a quick recovery is ideal, right? But, did you know that there are instances when a quick breach recovery can hurt an organization? For one healthcare facility, this was the case, as it fell prey to a ransomware attack. While the organization was able to quickly recover operations, it recovered so quickly that it failed to preserve needed evidence for proper forensic analysis.

So, what did this organization do as a result? In this podcast, LBMC Information Security’s Bill Dean explains how quick breach recovery hurt this organization and the steps that can be taken to avoid it happening for your own organization.

Listen in, and you’ll learn:

  • How organizations with electronic protected health information (EPHI) are to handle ransomware infections
  • Why without the needed forensic artifacts, we do not have the needed information to determine if “low probability that the PHI has been compromised.”
  • Why forensics firms will likely direct you to outside counsel to protect you
