Webcast: Dangerous Lessons Learned From 2018's Healthcare Breaches
Wednesday, October 10th. 10 AM - 10:45 AM PDT.
If you're in the healthcare industry, please do not miss this one.
Not many industries can say that cyber security is a life-and-death issue, except for healthcare institutions. Equipment that we have come to rely on to diagnose critical illnesses and provide life support are now embedded with computers that can’t easily be modified. Electronic Health Records have provided new, unique risks that now must be dealt with.
This webcast will cover this past year’s healthcare breaches to find out what could have been done to prevent those attacks. Plus, what we can now do to protect those devices that, due to FDA regulation, can’t be modified.
- Summarize the high-profile healthcare breaches effecting organizations around the world and what lessons can be drawn from what happened.
- Understand the unique threats to healthcare and why older threats still persist against healthcare targets. (Ransomware, for instance)
- Discuss protection and mitigation techniques with a focus on embedded medical devices that can’t be modified.
