Network Segmentation: A Key to Healthcare Security
Scott Ferguson – Executive Editor, ISMG / Steven Mond – Principal Architect, Segmentation & Cloud, Forescout
Healthcare is facing unprecedented security challenges. These organizations are now targeted frequently by hackers at a time when the attack surface is expanding thanks to the increasing use of mobile medical and other connected devices living on these networks.
To highlight these risks, security researchers recently uncovered numerous vulnerabilities in a software library that affects millions of devices, including those used by healthcare organizations. These so-called “Ripple20” flaws should serve as a wake up call for healthcare that cyberthreats are ever present.
How can healthcare security leaders gain greater visibility into their network to determine what devices and internet of medical things (IoMTs) are there and which are vulnerable? Can network segmentation help resolve issues found in the infrastructure that organizations are now using? How can rethinking your network strategy create better security outcomes?
Please join ISMG’s Scott Ferguson for an exclusive Virtual Roundtable that will draw from the experiences of the attendees, offering thoughts on the challenges of creating security plans for healthcare organizations, how best to manage IoMT devices and how network segmentation can provide a layer of security for those organizations that are relying more on cloud services to support their life-saving missions.
Discussion topics will include:
- What is keeping healthcare organizations from developing more mature network segmentation strategies?
- Can network segmentation help healthcare organizations discover and protect IoMT devices?
- How can healthcare organizations use network segmentation to meet a myriad of government regulations and patient and data privacy laws?
Joining Scott to provide expert insight and case studies is Steven Mond, Principal Architect, Segmentation and Cloud, at Forescout Technologies.
