8:45 AM Strengthening Security for All Stakeholders With Evolving Breaches and Emerging Technologies

Cyber security affects the entire healthcare community; no one is immune from a breach. The effectiveness of internal preparedness is vital. Practical risk management is a mind-set.  Executives must learn and keep in balance the interests of stakeholders, the mission, asset value and the real impact of an attack. Breaches will happen; the focus needs to be how the organization should minimize disruptions, handle ransomware and other attacks including proactive incident response and business continuity measures. This includes mitigating against chip vulnerabilities such as Meltdown and Spectre. Efforts to automate include integrating emerging technologies with existing security tools and bolstering processes to protect from human errors and insider threats. Executives must convey security is a continued enterprise investment. 

In this session:

  • Hardening networks from technology and financial standpoints
  • Balancing automation and expert human analysis
  • Testing incident response and ensuring backup and recovery processes
