Cyber Education – The Catalyst for Critical Change In-House and in Your Community

June 12, 2018
8:50am - 9:25am
Grand Ballroom

Health care security leaders struggle to find and retain top talent in a hot market. At the same time, device vendors race to keep up with the latest software vulnerabilities. These and other challenges are part of an environment of ever-evolving cyber risk.

In this session, Christine Vanderpool, deputy CISO and executive director of cyber risk at Kaiser Permanente, envisions a future – one likely to arrive sooner than later - where consumer demand for security, fueled by education, creates an important market differentiator. Hospitals and systems that thrive will do so by not only demonstrating their own security strength, but also by educating employees, patients, and their community at large.

Security will become more front-and-center as people consume increasingly more care services through digital means. It also presents a great opportunity to:

  • Satiate consumer demand for secure products and services.
  • Create buzz and interest in cyber security as a profession.
  • Help health care providers differentiate themselves in an increasingly competitive marketplace.

As Christine will discuss, it’s critical that health care organizations get in front of this growing change in consumer sentiment by not only staying on top of cyber risk, but also demonstrating good corporate citizenship, cyber security education, and thought leadership.
