Write your final paper consisting of 15 to 17 pages 
The case
Your  organizational is a large hospital system that has just had a huge  Ransomware attack. 320,000 patients that their health information may  have been exposed in a ransomware attack. The ransomware incident took  the network off line for 6 days. Non-emergency medical procedures were  cancelled due to the lack of access to the electronic health record  system and other computers. Providers and clinicians were forced to pen  and paper, to allow patient care to continue. Your organization has been  in the news with many negative stories about the cyber breach.  As a result, you need to create the following:

A cybersecurity breach emergency response plan. 
A business continuity plan to address this issue new and in the future. 
A crisis communication team
A crisis communications plan
The benefits to the organization of these plans and final conclusions 

The final paper will  be 15-17 pages (not including your cover page and reference page)  double spaced 12 point Times Roman New in APA format. You must use a  minimum 20 different references, which could include your course  textbook. Wikipedia  is not an acceptable source of reference

Medical care and health care are the two pillars of society we live in. It is essential for every human being from a fetus to an old age person lying on the bed, every person needs some kind of medical help, and this is where Hospitals come into picture. Hospitals and health system are having a dramatic change in the business models because of many factors. With the pandemic threat several forces are expected to turn the industry eventually on its head. With artificial intelligence the hospitals are turning to E-clinic for providing patients with treatments that are not serious.
All the hospital data and patients’ records are stored in cloud nowadays. With E-clinics that data has increased more. Rapid adoption of electronic health records (EHRs) has fundamentally changed the way health care organizations and clinicians care for patients, manage the hospital, account for health care quality, and bill for their services (Sittig & Singh, 2016). Our organization is a large chain of hospitals with thousands of patients getting treated everyday. Our organization has just been ransomware attacked and it has affected around 320000 patients record. Ransomware refers to a type of malware used by attackers that first encrypts files and then attempts to extort money in return for the key to unlock the files by demanding a “ransom” (Bridges, 2008). Prior to 2016 healthcare sector was not targeted by them, However, what has been noticed is hospitals have become an easy target for them. The ransomware incident has taken the network offline and non-emergency patients are not being treated due to lack of EHRs. There have been other such incidents and has given my organization a bad name.
From the 3 cases we are presented to choose I find this case to be very challenging. Being in the IT field we deal with many kinds of issues. But protecting organizational data from ransomware is a very sensitive and serious issue. Here the electronic records are at stake. One small mistake and the organization will cause permanent damage to its reputation. What I see is the organization has been in the bad spotlight even before the incident. So the problem doesn’t end just with providing a disaster recovery plan but a subtle approach must be taken to find the security system loop holes.
Based on the assumption that the trojan or virus is already in the system we need to use a methodology and framework based on that. In the current ransomware attack I would like to use Digital Forensic Readiness Framework (DFR). Digital Forensic Readiness (DFR) is the ability of an organization to maximize its potential to use digital evidence whilst minimizing the costs of an investigation (Ikusan & Ventar,2017). We can say that DFR is a process which can capture digital forensic information from the system prior to the incident occurred and compare with the new information that is currently available. DFR can be used to strengthen the security of the organization
