Healthcare’s New Threat Reality: Mobile Workforces, Virtual Clinics and Cyber Risk
Nick Holland – Executive Editor, ISMG / Troy Ament – Field CISO – Healthcare, Fortinet
The healthcare industry has seen operating models change, adapt, and accelerate in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This has included healthcare organizations shifting from traditional work environments to mobile workforces for large service centers, opening or expanding online virtual visits, and a significant increase in urgent care clinics across the country. These changes in operating models have expanded the threat landscape requiring organizations to reassess their cyber security program to protect them from emerging threats.
How can today’s healthcare organizations protect the expanding attack surface? How can employees be better equipped to deal with emerging threats? And where can budget be most effectively allocated to counter new cybersecurity risks?
Please join ISMG’s Nick Holland for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on strategies organizations are using to proactively respond to healthcare business changes while at the same time ensuring patient care excellence, being competitive in their market, and making sure patient information is protected.
Discussion topics will include:
- What are the security challenges presented by the hybrid healthcare workforce?
- What are the threats presented by connected medical devices?
- How do I get buy-in for security policies that may run counter to operational priorities?
- Where are my peers investing in security initiatives to deal with the shifting threat landscape presented by the COVID19 pandemic and the ongoing transition to telehealth and telemedicine?
Joining Nick to provide expert insight and case studies is Troy Ament, Field CISO – Healthcare – at Fortinet.
