HIMSS Director of Privacy & Security Lee Kim aggregates a valuable monthly recap of information on current threats, vulnerabilities, mitigation information and other valuable resources for the healthcare industry. Rather than paralyzing them with information overload, Lee’s “Healthcare and Cross-Sector Cybersecurity Report”, tips off privacy & security professionals to current relevant threats and offers advice on how to proactively mitigate the threats.
In this session, Lee reviews a year dominated by WannaCry, Petya, NotPetya and other ransomware, distributed denial of service attacks, concerns about malicious insiders, outdated and insecure websites, and other threats and vulnerabilities.
At present and going forward, there’s no evidence that these threats will slow down. But as Lee will discuss, healthcare organizations can head off trouble by staying ahead of the threats, and perhaps more importantly, raising the cybersecurity literacy of all employees.
