PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT

May 11-12, 2017 | San Francisco, CA

Ransomware, IoT, and Confronting New and Emerging Threats

May 11, 2017
10:05am - 10:45am
Grand Ballroom

The threat landscape is changing and hackers have become much more dangerous and disruptive to healthcare. New and emerging attacks are more impactful because they interrupt services and communications. They can cripple an organization by taking down its infrastructure and internet connections, and, most alarmingly, this poses a major risk to patient care.

Whether its identity theft, ransomware (extortion), targeting employees through increasingly creative phishing emails, or myriad other attacks, hackers have healthcare squarely in their sights.

In this opening state-of-the-industry discussion, our panel of seasoned healthcare security veterans survey the threat landscape and explain what they are doing to counter hackers.

Key discussion points:

  • Enhancing network integrity.
  • Increasing threat awareness through better detection.
  • Strengthening data loss prevention and other solutions to stop data exfiltration.
  • More

Attendees will also have ample opportunity to ask questions.
