There is another pandemic running rampant through healthcare and EMS is not immune. Agencies are being infiltrated by ransomware, infected with viruses, and even having data stolen and sold on the dark web with no knowledge it is even happening. If the lost productivity and revenue weren’t bad enough, these attacks can also result in fines from federal regulators that total in the tens or even hundreds of thousands of dollars. Is your department well defended? What will you do if the feds open an investigation into your cybersecurity? Are you one bad click away from a “terminal” illness? Come join John Yeast, Director of Technology at St. Charles County Ambulance District, to find out what you should be on the lookout for, where the most common weaknesses lie, and why you cannot afford not to pay attention to this very real threat to your agency’s data security.
