Best Healthcare Conferences 2021 – 2022

"Best In Category" Series

European Identity

We can all agree that COVID brought immeasurable and in some cases lasting damage to multiple areas of our societies. Unfortunately, cybercriminals have exploited our predicament, however, the purpose of this list is to highlight some recommended “best of” healthcare conferences that you might consider attending. In all the listed security categories that we cover I believe that healthcare is the most important from our humanist position. If you work within the niche of cybersecurity and healthcare then my genuine hope is that you attain knowledge by contributing to any of the listed events and conferences on my list.

The following is my list of recommended healthcare conferences and events that I believe are worthwhile and beneficial to attend. The list is a”work in progress” and will be constantly updated as new, innovative, and notable healthcare conferences are submitted, (as long as they have a Cybersecurity element to them).

About This List

As the year progresses, we will add more recommended activities for the next year; usually, this is determined by conferences submitted to our directory.

If you work in this vital area, I highly urge you to attend these events. You must attend any of these activities.

2020 Health-ISAC Fall Summit
November 30th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

H-ISAC (Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center), is one of the largest (and international) non-profit, healthcare organizations that is focused on Cybersecurity and the importance that it places in healthcare.

One of the drivers of H-ISAC is to facilitate an open forum for coordinating, collaborating and sharing vital cyber threat intelligence and best practices, and to share that information.

If you are working in tech and healthcare then clearly you need to get to know H-ISAC.

I’ve just listed this event in the US but we also have information on their Annual Health-ISAC European Summit.

CYBERTECH Live: Cybersecurity for the Healthcare Sector
July 16th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

CYBERTech runs a bunch of IT security events that all have a different focus.

This one we note is aimed squarely at the healthcare sector.

Cyberattacks on healthcare industries are increasing each day especially as a result of COVID so it is clearly vital to attend events like CYBERTech to learn more.

My understanding is that the CYBERTech healthcare event listed in this resource is based in the US and should be an “in-person” event in 2021.

Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMMS)
March 9th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

Similar to H-ISAC is HIMSS (Healthcare Information and Management Systems).

The goal of HIMSS is to “Reform the global health ecosystem through the power of information and technology”, and I couldn’t agree anymore to the importance of this especially since we need all the help we can fighting this and every other future pandemic.

Based in Chicago, Illinois, HIMSS has a wide reach with members from the global health information and many tech communities. The HIMSS membership count reaches over 80,000 healthcare and tech individuals from other 480 organizations. If you’re seeking Cybersecurity healthcare conferences to attend then clearly this is also, like H-ISAC, one for the calendar.

CISO Exchange Healthcare
May 18th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

Managed by Cyber Security Hub, a division of IQPC, CISO Healthcare Exchange is another US-based “must-attend” InfoSec healthcare conference to attend.

If you’re a CXO-level Cyber Pro, and specifically a CISO or CSO then you’ll likley get a lot of value from the “CISO Healthcare Exchange”.

Topics covered at CISO Healthcare Exchange include:

  • Threat Management
  • Third Party Risk
  • IoMT Security
  • Insider Threats

And – a lot more.

An example of talks at a recent CISO Healthcare Exchange sums up the quality and depth of Information Security advice and healthcare knowledge you’ll experience by attending. For example, “Reality Check: is AI and ML Really Cybersecurity’s Savior?”. Also, “Strategies to Secure Pharmaceutical IP & Supply Chains” or “Healthcare 2.0: Securing the Brave New World of the IoMT”.

In summary, if you work in the healthcare space then this is another conference you ought to be researching.

Virtual Cybersecurity Summit: Healthcare
June 9th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

Organized by ISMG, this healthcare event was in 2020 free to attend. OK, it was virtual, but still, you can never beat free!

Central to the Virtual Cybersecurity Summit: Healthcare was the premise that speakers would share how to address security needs and threats that are happening within the healthcare industry at an alarming rate.

Be sure to check out what ISMG has planned in next year within the healthcare and Cybersecurity space.

Healthcare’s New Cyber Risk Profile in the Pandemic
April 29th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

We’ve known the folks over at SC Magazine for a long time now and can vouch for the quality and depth of their research and magazine.

This event that they organized was to examine and discuss cyber threats and vulnerabilities within the healthcare sector.

PrivSec Healthcare Maastricht
April 21st, 2020
Netherlands

• Past Review •

PrivSec conferences run dozens of security events every year on a bunch of different cybersecurity topics.

The series I understand is part of the Data Protection World Forum’s series of global events.

In 2020 their event (which I understand went ahead virtually) included over 30 security speakers who explored the inextricable link between data privacy and data security within a healthcare perspective.

The State of AI in Healthcare
May 12th, 2020
United States

• Past Review •

Organized by AI4, this security healthcare event will explore the state of Artificial Intelligence in hospitals and pharma.

The industry specialists that speak at events like this one by Ai4 will help you get a better understanding of the state of AI in healthcare in 2021.
