If you think of healthcare security as a three-act play, we are now well into the second act, and orgs that have not kept up (and there are many), face more danger than they likely imagine.

Key second act themes:

  • Healthcare orgs shift resources from prevention to incident response. It’s not if, but when you’ll be breached. To safeguard patient safety and business continuity, organizations must respond and recover quickly.
  • Information sharing has grown in importance.
  • Security leaders recognize the need to optimize existing technology rather than buy the next shiny object.
  • Automation and manage services help offset a shrinking talent pool.
  • Awareness training sits center stage.

The list goes on.

In this session, our expert speakers will discuss these and other key features of healthcare security’s second act. Importantly, they’ll provide guidance to help organizations stuck in the first act move to the second act and create a more resilient security posture.

As for the third act, they’ll have some thoughts on that, too.
