Medical institutions of every size have a pervasive and persistent target on their backs in today’s threat landscape.
In fact, a joint statement by the FBI, the Cybersecurity & Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA), and the Department of Health & Human Services (HHS) released in late October 2020 warned of “credible information of an increased and imminent cybercrime threat to U.S. hospitals and healthcare providers,” and shared the notice “to provide warning to healthcare providers to ensure that they take timely and reasonable precautions to protect their networks from these threats.”
The prevailing risks of the times made it clear to Laura Joslin, owner of Ability Plus Therapy clinics, that she needed to ensure her clinics subscribed to a layered security approach. Especially so, since one of her other organizations, a non-profit school for disabled children, recently experienced a hacking attempt which was fortunately thwarted. “We’re a tiny little school with 46 kids. We’re not some big fish. Our school is our ministry, we have 46 kids with physical disabilities and a staff of 17. We’re not big, and we were still attacked.”
The devastation that could be wrought on her healthcare business, especially as HIPAA fines for data breaches can run into the hundreds of thousands of dollars, led Laura to Sollensys. Laura chose to invest in the Blockchain Archive Server™ (BAS) as a turnkey, secure backup solution to add an additional layer of security for her patient data.
“We’d already put a lot of cyber security tactics in place, but we had nothing like the BAS. Now we feel a lot better in protecting our patients and our business.” – Laura Joslin, Ability Plus Therapy
The Blockchain Archive Server™ ensures business continuity and data integrity in the event of a ransomware attack.
The peace of mind that comes with knowing that I am protecting my team and their livelihoods, as well as my guests… it was absolutely a no-brainer to implement the BAS.
The ability to avoid business interruption and ensure a safe archive of sensitive client data was more than worth the investment in the BAS.
We’d already put a lot of cyber security tactics in place, but we had nothing like the BAS, now we feel a lot better in protecting our patients and our business.
