10 Steps to Fighting Ransomware

  • Turn off Internet access through Firewall including VPN access.
  • Disconnect the email server, then find and remove all ransomware emails.
  • Lock all User Accounts on Active Directory so that users can no longer access the computers to block spreading of ransomware.
  • Expire all Passwords (most importantly the IT Admin Passwords).
  • Use Cloud-based Secure Texting service on Personal Smartphones to carry on care coordination. Use Texting, Images, Audio and Video to start collaborating on patient care to reduce errors in the absence of access to EHR.


  • Clinicians should create secure texting conversation threads around patient names to capture documentation that can be included back in the EHR after the crisis.
  • Re-image computers infected by Ransomware.
  • Turn on Active Directory and allow access to EHR internally.
  • Turn on Internet access through Firewall and Email Server. Monitor Emails.
  • Now Sync all patient centric conversations from the Secure Texting service with EHR.
