Two recent security incidents involving ransomware attacks on vendors serve as the latest reminders of the risks business associates pose to healthcare organizations. What steps should entities take to mitigate those risks?
The city of Atlanta's ransomware outbreak cleanup and response tab has hit $2.6 million after a March attack froze corporate servers, employees' PCs and resident-facing portals.

Many banking institutions boast of being "digital first" and enabling "omnichannel banking." But are they fully aware of the new fraud risks they also are inviting? Kimberly Sutherland and Kimberly White of LexisNexis Risk Solutions discuss how to mitigate omnichannel fraud.
A new strain of the Petya ransomware called "Bad Rabbit" is impacting business and sweeping across Russia and Ukraine, among other Eastern European countries. Like many of the other ransomware outbreaks, understanding fact from fiction is the first step in staying safe.
There is no doubt that every organization now requires advanced malware protection. Even so, there are plenty of organizations that have either not yet implemented this protection, or have it only somewhat implemented.
