As defenders we are outnumbered five to one. What are the proactive steps and defenses that a healthcare security team can take to evaluate threats, vulnerabilities and risks and to prepare and protect payer and provider institutions from attack?
This panel session will discuss the healthcare threat landscape, vulnerabilities, pen testing and other forms of technical vulnerability assessment, compliance, risk analysis and remediation including effective patch management and the need for compensating security controls and other risk mitigation strategies where patching is not possible.

Attorney Barry Herrin discuss six “Big Decisions” organizations must make to mitigate this weakest link. These include:
Barry will then moderate a group discussion with a healthcare risk-management leader and share best practices to help attendees shore up and button down their approach to mitigating insider threats.
