Empalis Fachvortrag bei der WebKo "IT-Sicherheit im Krankenhaus 2024" zu Backup in Zeiten von Cyberangriffen

Implementing NIS2: At the IT-SICHERHEIT "Security in Hospitals" web conference, we will be presenting an automated, fully managed service solution for protecting and restoring critical backup data. Free registration.

In the web conference on March 12, 2024, IT-SICHERHEIT magazine will present various software solutions and services relating to the topic of "Security in Hospitals".


The morning will be introduced by an expert keynote, which will highlight the relevance of the topic for the target group of hospitals as critical infrastructure players (KRITIS). Decision-makers and IT managers will be given important pointers for selecting an approach or solution.

Protect critical backup data and restore it in the event of a crisis.

Unfortunately, ransomware attacks on hospitals continue to increase. This involves the protection of highly sensitive patient data and the maintenance of sometimes life-sustaining processes and systems, such as access to X-ray images for operations or patient data when dispensing medication.


The lecture presents a solution with which hospitals can securely restore their critical data even in the event of an attack.

Automated testing, scanning and cleaning: intelligent ransomware protection for hospitals as a full-service offering.


Usually, the malware check takes place before the backup. But what happens if malware gets into the backup anyway, making recovery more difficult or even preventing it?


Bernd Hanebuth presents the Empalis solution VIKING Backup Guardian. In a live demo, he will show how the solution uses AI-based algorithms to quickly and reliably detect anomalies in the backup, restore backup data in an isolated environment and clean it up with a malware scanner.

VIKING Backup Guardian saves an additional data copy in the Empalis Cloud, checks the existing VMs for malware in regular restore tests and cleans them up if necessary.


You can also find out which flexible booking options are available to you in this full service.


Focus of the presentation:

  1. cyber resilience as the basis for data recovery
  2. AI-supported anomaly detection in the VIKING Backup Guardian Sandbox
  3. the VIKING Backup Guardian solution architecture
  4. live demo
  5. advantages of the fully managed Empalis Cloud solution 



Bernd Hanebuth is a consultant in the Empalis Operations & Service Team.

He brings over 20 years of professional experience in the network, backup and security environment to his work as a consultant and solution architect.
