Cybercriminals have become increasingly sophisticated. Organizations that regularly backup their data to protect against a crippling attack now find that even these backup systems can become encrypted because they are connected to the network being targeted. An offline backup storage plan is vital to ensuring that you are able to recover quickly from ransomware attacks and maintain the continuity of care for your patients. Cloud storage is a convenient way to store files but is not necessarily the best way to maintain backups; especially when it comes to ransomware. Many cloud storage solutions synchronize local files with files stored in the cloud. Thus a cloud backup can also be easily infected. Besides an offline backup, SecureData’s line of SecureDrive BT, SecureDrive KP, SecureDrive Duo devices can help keep data secure when the data is being used by a remote workforce or when the data at rest – is being transported. Lost and stolen devices cost healthcare organizations millions of dollars in fines and legal costs every year.
