Cybercriminals are now focusing their efforts on attacking people. They use social engineering to deeply understand their targets and launch attacks with the same level of impact that they used against a hospital’s IT infrastructure. Hear from security experts on which specific job functions cybercriminals attack the most, and what can be done about it.  We’ll lead an open discussion on which factors put your users at risk and practical strategies to thwart would be attackers.

Cybersecurity’s Impact on Patient Safety and Trust

The damage a cybersecurity incident can have on an organization’s reputation and finances is well known.  What doesn’t get talked about is the impact cybersecurity can have on both patient safety and trust. As cybersecurity attacks have become more sophisticated, they are creating a slew of new patient safety issues.  Plus, each incident undermines patient’s trust in their health institution. Join this panel of health IT leaders to learn how patient safety and trust are impacted by security incidents and how you can properly address these cybersecurity risks in your organization.
