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.

Phishing poses a major threat to your organization, and this interactive session will test your knowledge and provide best practices for mitigating these increasingly sophisticated attacks.

Here’s how it works: Our moderator will ask multiple-choice questions based on recently released public-private research on phishing. Attendees will answer via our real-time polling app. Finally, our panel of experts will address the questions and discuss the correct answers more in-depth.

Some sample questions:

  • What’s the difference between spear-phishing and whaling?
  • Phishing is the most common entry point for a breach? Yes or no.
  • List three factors that make people more susceptible to phishing.
  • If you suspect a phishing attack, what’s the first thing you should do?

As this session will prove, learning can be fun, and the information shared will strengthen your organization’s phishing defense.
