HOW TO LEVERAGE NETWORK WIDE SECURITY AT MINIMUM COST WITH MAXIMUM EFFECTIVENESS IN HEALTHCARE
Cyber security threat to the key US sectors remains both uniquely complex and hugely prevalent, as illustrated by the recent data breaches in the country's largest retailer and insurance provider networks. The full scale of the threat in relation to the high stake US healthcare data is yet to be fully apprehended, but taking extra steps to secure networks and devices has already spiked major attention from all parties concerned.
Hackers being very quick to both discern the high value of healthcare data on the black markets and to pinpoint weaknesses in healthcare security systems, the most high profile demonstration of this of course being the hacking one of the largest insurance providers in the US, where over 80 million records were compromised in one attack.
In total, healthcare organizations accounted for 42% of all major data breaches reported in 2014 according to Experian's Data Breach Industry Forecast released in December last year. The expectation is that the percentage will grow even further.
Each and every one of the healthcare system providers in the US has a tremendous amount at stake: patient safety, patient trust, losses related to legal matters and penalties associated with non-compliance to the regulatory acts (reaching up to $1.5 mn).
Being exposed to such an uncertain environment, the healthcare systems are looking for immediate solutions/technologies/practices based on the real life experiences that can help them to navigate safely through this exceptionally dangerous time.ACTION CAN, IS BEING AND WILL BE TAKEN
With healthcare systems growing into very complex structures comprizing dozens of stakeholders connected through complicated data grids, industry specific tried and tested best practices and approaches are needed. The Cyber & Information Security For US Healthcare initiative will present delegates with the real life best practices related to information & data security
