They can attack the backup infrastructure. So, it’s not just about restoring from a backup; HDOs need to ensure that they recover from an uninfected backup. To add to the problem, healthcare data in cloud storage is not immune to ransomware. However, cloud storage can give you a significant advantage with data protection due to the number of flexible recovery options.
