Webinar Title: Healthcare (Un)interrupted: Continuing Mission-critical Services in the Age of Superstorms & Ransomware


Speakers: Rudy Rumohr, Senior Consultant, Data Center Practice, Connection and Bill Virtue, Security Engineering Specialist, Connection


Webinar Description:

When disaster strikes is when your ability to provide services is needed most. Are you prepared? Along with more traditionally known threats such as fire, flood, and natural disaster, man-made disasters in the form of security breaches and ransomware have been sweeping through organizations large and small. The healthcare industry in particular has historically lagged in the adoption of robust security solutions which can help to prevent and respond to these threats, but did you know that BC/DR techniques are also helping companies cope with these new and dangerous attacks? Learn from Connection experts how strong security solutions and disaster recovery systems can work together to provide complete protection and business continuity.
