Clinic hit by ransomware recovers in hours thanks to solid incident response plan

As it turned out, the administrators’ hunch was correct: the clinic had just received a dose of ransomware. We immediately instituted our security breach protocols which involved shutting down all of our computers and servers,” the firm said. “Within hours of discovering the activity, an independent IT consulting firm was onsite at Maffi Clinics and determined that an unidentified source had gained remote access to our server and installed ransomware.
