It’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month! In healthcare, safeguarding cybersecurity is safeguarding patients. Whether it’s a hospital, health system, physician group, or a trusted digital health partner, when healthcare is attacked, patients are at risk.
Join us all month as we feature some of healthcare’s fiercest defenders. They’re leaders from across the ecosystem fighting to protect data, systems, and care delivery. Join us to hear how they started, why they chose healthcare, and their advice for other leaders in their spaces.
Today’s featured Healthcare Defender is Terri Ripley, the CIO at OrthoVirginia. Terri knows firsthand what happens when a medical group is attacked with ransomware; she and her team successfully recovered a ransomware attack a few years ago. Terri shares her story at conferences and events to help other leaders secure their organizations from cyber attackers and to give them a framework for recovery if they find themselves in similar situations. Enjoy Terri’s background and advice for others on today’s episode!
Cybersecurity is patient safety. Do your part, be a healthcare defender.
