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.
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. They’ll also discuss their top initiatives for the coming year.
