Information security risk management has become a very difficult task, requiring a detailed understanding of threat and risk, a complete model to determine "real and measurable" risk, and a comprehensive program of risk governance.
This session will review the current state of common threats, discuss the types of attacks and techniques that are being executed, and describe an information security risk management program strategy that can help healthcare organizations meet this threat head on and develop a plan for moving their existing risk into an acceptable range.
