The frequency, sophistication and severity of ransomware attacks on healthcare providers have increased dramatically over the past several years, with COVID-19 adding to this trend.

There is a lot that can be done however, by healthcare organizations, government agencies and cybersecurity providers in order to improve resilience, prepare for potential attacks, and respond and recover when they occur.

Cyber Week 2023 and the Israel National Cyber Directorate are excited to dedicate a special event to this important topic, with leading experts from all over the world.
