Quest International Announces Effort to Increase Cyberattack/Ransomware Awareness & Prevention to the Radiology Community at RSNA 2018

November 19, 2018

IRVINE, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Nov 19, 2018--Quest International, Inc., a global IT managed services provider specializing in the healthcare industry, announced today its initiative to prevent and increase awareness of many forms of cyberattacks such as denial of service (DoS) attacks, phishing attacks, man-in-the-middle (MitM) attack and others that can cripple healthcare businesses. In post-WannaCry ransomware surveys, many still contend that less than 5% of businesses are prepared for new types of cyberattacks.

For all healthcare businesses, it’s not only imperative to have cybersecurity and back-up recovery plans in place in order to protect its business but it is also to comply with regulatory laws. HIPAA compliance mandates that patient data including imaging files need to be protected where the privacy of patients’ personal information is closely guarded. By providing cost effective and compliant IT managed services solutions, Quest International is partnering with healthcare organizations to combat ever-increasing cyber threats.

“Quest International’s participation at the annual Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) conference is to advocate for protection against cyberattacks in the imaging community,” Pasha Arshadi, VP of Global Service Solutions, states. “We need to equip and partner with healthcare businesses to reverse or eradicate the cyberattack business growth.”
