Virtual Event: Cyber Security in Healthcare

Mitigating Cyber Risk and Threats Through Embedding Robust Security Frameworks

Tuesday, January 19, 2021
(Start: 12.00pm ET / 9.00am PT)

Agenda Overview:

Cyber attacks in healthcare are becoming increasingly difficult to identify, prevent, and mitigate.

Healthcare providers are clear targets for DDoS attacks, ransomware, cloud threats, and a number of other security breaches, along with encryption blind spots and employee error contributing to the risk of data being exposed and systems compromised.

According to Cisco, 40 percent of health care organizations encounter thousands of security alerts daily. Due to the significant impact of data breaches in health care, it’s critical to ensure healthcare providers remain secure.

Establishing a security culture, setting an incident response plan, minimizing supply chain risk, protecting devices and software, planning for the unexpected, and implementing controlled access to protected health information are just some of the approaches the industry is taking to improve cybersecurity and mitigate risk.

The Public Sector Network’s Cyber Security in Healthcare Virtual Event aims to help build on this foundation of experience and knowledge, with the event focused on bringing real-world practices, use cases, and methodologies to make cyber security and privacy initiatives a tangible success for healthcare providers.
