HIMSS Healthcare Security Forum: Call for Speaking Proposals is Open

Healthcare IT News and HIMSS are accepting speaker proposals for the Healthcare Security Forum in Boston, Sept. 11-13.

This is the healthcare industry’s leading privacy and security event, and the agenda fills up quickly so don’t delay. Brand your organization as a leader in this mission-critical field and help the healthcare industry better secure its data.

The deadline to submit is Thursday, June 1, 5 p.m. EST.

Submissions are limited to security professionals and experts from healthcare provider and payer organizations, government agencies, and academic institutions. Case studies are a priority and presentations should be practical, actionable and solutions-based.

The forum's peer-to-peer format provides healthcare security professionals with tools, real-life solutions, best practices, and expert insights into how to better manage risk and protect data assets.

In addition to morning thought-leadership presentations, afternoon tracks deliver in-depth information to attendees on key topics. The tracks are:

  • Cyber Hygiene (IAM, DLP, data mapping, security frameworks, machine learning, blockchain, pen-testing, vulnerability assessment, automation, analytics, incident response, disaster recovery, etc.).
  • Human Factors (education and awareness training, risk assessments).
  • Leadership (core values, collaboration and communication, change management, training, working across the organization).
  • Threat Management (IoT, medical and mobile devices, end-point security, duel-factor authentication, malware, network segmentation, cloud security, etc.).
  • Compliance (HIPAA, 3rd party risk management, BAA, etc.).
