You work as the head of the IT department for a local hospital. Another hospital in your state was recently the target of a ransomware attack. Fearing a similar attack, senior management of your hospital has asked you if your hospital is prepared for such an attack.
They have requested a 1- to 2-page memo that describes the hospital’s protections against a ransomware attack. In your memo, include a chart with columns for Authorization, Authentication, Roles, and Mitigation. In each column, list related security protections the hospital should use to protect against ransomware attacks. Additionally, based on your chart, provide a final summary on how the hospital can mitigate the risk of a ransomware attack and how the hospital can respond if it does face such an attack.
Write a 1- to 2-page memo.
Include the chart in your memo.
