Posted by Logan LeClair on Aug 14, 2019 10:15:00 AM

Ransomware has become a keyword that triggers a quiver-like response in most business owners and IT Managers. This is for a good reason, as Ransomware has the ability to encrypt all of your business-critical data, disabling you access to the most important pieces of your enterprise.

Don’t let a cyber-criminal ruin your reputation or halt your sales, take initiative to prepare yourself now!

Creating a Disaster Recovery Plan for Healthcare Organizations

Posted by Jill Sullivan on Jun 12, 2019 7:30:00 AM
Over the past several years, physicians and other ancillary healthcare workers have shifted away from paper documentation to the use of electronic medical records (EMRs). The establishment of the Medicare and Medicaid Incentive Programs (now called the Promoting Interoperability Programs) by the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services in 2011 has further served to hasten this transition. Under this program, providers and eligible health facilities receive federal payments for their adoption and utilization of electronic health systems.

With this increase in medical data being stored electronically, it is essential to have a disaster recovery plan in place to ensure that your healthcare facility can still function if its data is lost or corrupted. An effective disaster recovery plan lets you restore your medical data and resume normal processes with minimal downtime following any type of data loss. Without a disaster recovery plan, your business may have a delayed recovery or even fail following any type of significant data loss.
