DRBC plans based on the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) from 2010 included strategies to deal with the business impact of up to 72 hours of system/network downtime, which was a reasonable assumption at the time.
Ransomware attacks have extended potential downtime beyond 72 hours, up to 30 days or more. Healthcare organizations must therefore re-evaluate their DRBC plans to consider extended downtime.
The possible scenarios are dramatic and require critical business strategies that go beyond technology and systems. For example, extended downtime can impact patient safety, not just information technology.
