Absolutely fascinating and highly topical. Healthcare and COVID-19 are linked. If you’re in NYC or indeed even have a passing interest in Cybersecurity & Healthcare, then this is one online virtual event that you are advised NOT to miss.

Event Summary

The following description was either submitted by the Conference Organizer on Tuesday, April 28th 2020, or created by us.

Always among the healthcare industry’s top priorities, in recent weeks information security has taken on even greater urgency. Amid the intensifying global pandemic, healthcare providers and other medical entities have become prime targets: From hijacking routers supporting health-data applications to launching ransomware attacks against medical suppliers to executing Covid-19 phishing exploits against a newly dispersed workforce, criminals are testing the industry’s cyber-resiliency. New points of exposure include:

  • Changes to trusted pools of full-time medical workers as providers onboard new and temporary personnel at unprecedented rates, giving them fast access to patient information and equipping them to work remotely.
  • Introduction of new tools and technologies that add efficiency and extend reach for workers, but also expand attack surfaces and increase the risks of insider and still other threats.
  • Resource constraints — driven by the pressure to reduce expenses as well as the cost to the patient — that make it harder for healthcare organizations to implement and maintain comprehensive security solutions.

As the level of threat and degree of difficulty rise in tandem, security practitioners in the healthcare industry have an expanding range of tools and techniques they can turn to.

Join for a multi-day virtual conference on April 29 – 30. titled Healthcare’s New Cyber Risk Profile in the Pandemic: Scoping the Challenge and Scaling the Solution. Focused exclusively on healthcare security, this SC Media conference features insights from the people and the companies in the trenches, solving the industry’s security problems today.
