Top Healthcare IT Topics
The scheduled sessions offer a wide variety of valuable information that you won’t want to miss. Here is what you can expect to learn when you attend this event:
Healthcare Security Essentials, Best Practices. To succeed in the ever-changing healthcare market, organizations must find the proper balance between compliance, security and innovation. Among the estimated five million-plus new devices that connect to the Internet daily, many are medical devices that are direct targets for cybercriminals. Learn more about securing these devices to protect your important private data and prevent it from falling into the wrong hands.
Investing in Cybersecurity. If your organization stores and transmits patient data, you should strategically invest in security. You never know when a hacker will attempt to breach your network. It’s vital for security professionals to understand how cybersecurity protocols integrate into your overall risk management plan. Learn more about risk exposure, how to assess your existing security controls, and identify ways to improve your overall security plan to keep your data safe.
Breach Response and Disaster Recovery. When hackers breach medical databases with social security numbers, credit card numbers and other sensitive information, they can use the stolen patient information to commit fraud, financial theft, or other scams. Learn how to create an effective incident response plan and focus on what really matters.
BYOD Healthcare Strategies. Healthcare providers can access data anytime, from any location—this creates additional endpoints for hackers to breach data systems. This is especially true when unregulated devices and vulnerable apps gain access your network. Learn how to establish the appropriate protocols and procedures to determine the right balance of security and BYOD policies.
Cloud Principles for the Healthcare Industry. Like most industries, healthcare providers must adapt to a changing security landscape as new technologies are introduced. Healthcare has embraced the cloud and all of the advantages it brings to value-based care. Learn more about virtualization and cloud computing, including how the cloud leads to increased productivity, flexibility, cost savings and more.
