Healthcare Security Forum: A HIMSS Event

December 7-8, 2020 | Boston, MA

Breakout Group Discussions

Taking on the healthcare industry’s ever-evolving security challenges means you’re always on the lookout for ways to stay one step ahead of cyber threats. During our breakout group discussions hear field-tested solutions and brainstorm new ideas during breakout discussions about ever-evolving, always-important blocking and tackling tactics:

  • Enterprise Risk Management & Information Sharing:
    A solid approach to enterprise security risk management (ESRM) signals a mature healthcare security program. It evaluates all security risks confronting an organization, prioritizes and addresses these risks proactively. This enables the organization to optimize its ability to provide safe, efficient, and effective patient care while protecting the assets required to do so. Read more >>
  • Incident Response & Recovery:
    One of the most basic and important functions in cybersecurity is the incident response (IR) process: standardized procedures to respond to cyberattacks. It may be as simple as a phishing attack against users or a highly sophisticated extortion that shuts down digital operations. In both cases, from minimal to significant impact, an organized IR is critical to managing the threat. Read more >>
