Cybersecurity Essentials for Long-Term Care – Protecting Yourself, Your Facility, and Your Residents

On Demand Access

This series will be recorded and posted on-demand. See schedule below to see when each session will be posted.

Series Description

This three-part series will help you protect yourself, your facility, and your residents by focusing on cybersecurity hygiene, ransomware resilience, and defending against business email compromise. Attendees will learn to identify online behaviors that can lead to increased exposure, identify common threats, gain insights into the latest ransomware threat landscape, and develop and refine incident response plans.

Session 1: Modern Cyber Risks for 2024
The pace of cyber fraud and the number of breaches hitting the headlines has not diminished. This session will explore the current state of cyber threats, detailing how attackers progress from your social media and online exposure, through phishing and account compromises to data breaches, data theft and ransomware. We will discuss attacker motivations, common “low hanging fruit,” and strategies prevent intrusions where we can, and mitigate the impact of intrusions or breaches when they occur. We will review case studies and “in the news” examples from the last 24 months that had significant impact on businesses. Throughout the session we will examine root causes leading to breaches, and mitigation strategies to minimize likelihood and impact.

Session 2: Ransomware Preparedness
The surge in ransomware attacks over recent years has highlighted the critical importance of being prepared to defend against and respond to such threats. In this session, we will delve into real-life case studies of ransomware incidents, drawing essential lessons from each scenario. We will analyze at least two distinct ransomware attacks, exploring their origins, methodologies, and impacts on affected organizations. By dissecting these case studies, we will uncover common vulnerabilities and security lapses that contributed to the success of the attacks.

Session 3: Office 365 Breaches – Lessons Learned the Hard Way
The last two years have provided significant learning opportunities in incident response, disaster recovery and business continuity. This session will analyze case studies of MS Office 365 breaches and email compromise situations from the last 18 months that had significant impact on businesses. We will use case studies from at least two different Office 365 email compromise events to discuss common security issues, identify key security controls, and role play incident response scenarios. We will conclude with a walk through of the results from several recent MS Office 365 security reviews to highlight how real-world scenarios could have positive or negative impacts on the case studies. Through examination of the case studies, we will explore strategies to mitigate the risks related to these types of situations and attacks, and discuss the elements and structure of Incident Response plans.
