HEALTHCARE SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
San Francisco, CA - June 11 - 12, 2018
In the healthcare, cyberterrorism can appear in a variety of forms. It can bring down a hospital computer system or publicly reveal private medical records. Whatever shape it takes, the general effects are the same: patient care is compromised, and trust in the health system is diminished.
Evidence suggests that cyber threats are increasing and that much of the U.S. healthcare system is ill equipped to deal with them.
Securing cyberspace is not an easy proposition as the threats are constantly changing, but it’s critical to recognize that cyberterrorism should be part of a broader information technology risk management strategy.
In this session, Michael Archuleta, recently recognized as a Top Hospital and Health System CIO, reviews case studies and the tremendous negative effects a cyber-attack could have on a healthcare organization. It’s scary stuff, but Michael will also share his thoughts on the best practices healthcare organizations can adopt to protect themselves – and their patients – from such attacks.
