    ONLINE WEBINAR
    Date:  Wednesday, February 16, 2022
    Time:  12 Noon - 1:00 pm 

    "Cybersecurity Steps Every Healthcare
    Organization Should Take Now"
     

         

    Speakers:  Angela Rivera, MBA and Craig Goodwin, CCISO, CISSP

    The amount of technology required to support the patient experience, improve clinical outcomes, and deliver value-based care is enormous. And while COVID-19 has forced healthcare institutions to pause many planned initiatives to focus instead on tackling the pandemic, the need to make cybersecurity a priority has never been greater. Cybersecurity is much more critical in healthcare than in other industries, because an incident isn’t just about losing or exposing personal information, it can be a matter of life or death. Our discussion will focus on ways to keeping pace with today’s cyber criminals using the right mix of people, process, and technology for better efficacy and risk control. Attendees will:

    • Learn key building blocks necessary to build or
      transform their current security program
    • Determine how to prioritize efforts that deliver more 
      comprehensive cyber-attack prevention and protection
    • Understand effective approaches to become more secure
      without deep pockets or in-house cybersecurity staff
