HEALTHCARE SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA, Oct. 15-16, 2018
A group of 20 healthcare experts in the United States created the hospital incident command system (HICS) in the 1980s to help hospitals prepare for and respond to disasters. The command center provides a robust framework for handling emergencies, but it was not intended to address healthcare security issues.
In this session, attendees will learn how Indiana University Health modified the HICS and implemented it to better conform with the NIST Cybersecurity Framework – and how you can do the same and strengthen your security profile.
Importantly, as speaker Mitch Parker will explain, a key benefit is that this gives security teams a framework to handle cyber issues at an organizational level, rather than just information security, and better coordinate resources.
