UPCOMING WEBINAR: State of Healthcare Security and Privacy: A Perfect Cyber Storm
Information security and privacy have evolved into mission critical business functions for healthcare organizations leading up to 2017. The healthcare industry is facing a perfect cyberstorm resulting from a variety of issues including the proliferation of health information across platforms and third parties, an increased utility of patient information on the black market, shortages in cyber security skill sets, vulnerable medical devices, and targeted threats including ransomware, as recently demonstrated by WannaCry.
Because healthcare remains a prime target for attackers bent on obtaining patient information and other sensitive data for financial gain, healthcare organizations must remain vigilant in addressing emerging security and privacy threats and challenges that will continue to shape the way in which healthcare organizations evolve in the next several years.
This webinar will review the major developments in healthcare security and privacy during the first half of 2017 and the emerging threats that healthcare entities should consider while steering their cyber protection programs through the rest of the year.
Participants will learn about forecasted trends for the remainder of 2017 in healthcare security and privacy, including:
- Ransomware becoming more prevalent and aggressive through attacks
- New risks introduced by Medical Device Security and the “Internet of things”
- Increased scrutiny from regulators and business partners
- Pivoting focus from breach prevention to breach response
