Why Storage and Backups are a Key Component of Healthcare Cybersecurity

Healthcare systems that modernize their storage systems are prepared to face an increasingly hostile cyberthreat landscape. If there’s a healthcare organization that knows something about building a strong data security foundation, it’s Kelsey-Seybold Clinic. In fact, the multidisciplinary clinic system, with locations throughout the greater Houston area, “had ransomware before ransomware was cool,” according to CTO and CISO Martin Littmann. In 2015, an attacker used a zero-day variant of CryptoLocker to infect two machines at one site. This was before their current strategy, he says, “but because of our security position, we were able to quickly identify the malware and stop it from spreading in less than an hour.”
