HEALTHCARE SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA, Oct. 15-16, 2018
Mitchell Parker, CISSP, is the executive director, Information Security and Compliance, at IU Health in Indianapolis, Indiana. Mitch is currently working on redeveloping the Information Security program at IU Health, and regularly works with multiple non-technology stakeholders to improve it. He also speaks regularly at multiple conferences and workshops, including HIMSS, IEEE TechIgnite, and Internet of Medical Things. Mitch has a Bachelor's degree in Computer Science from Bloomsburg University, a MS in Information Technology Leadership from LaSalle University, and his MBA from Temple University.
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.
