Join Our Monthly Q&A where we answer your questions on HIPAA.
Topic for May: Despite increased spending on IT, healthcare still lags behind other industries particularly other regulated industries like finance or government. In fact, Symantec’s newly released 2017 Internet Security Threat Report (ISTR) for Healthcare found the industry contributed to the second highest number of security incidents in the services sector in 2016.
Key findings from the report include:
- More planned and targeted attacks, including more ransomware impacting healthcare through an increase in smaller incidents.
- A growing understanding that the risk is not just about patient data, but about patient care delivery, and potentially, even about patient health itself.
The industry has started to recognize that merely being HIPAA compliant is not sufficient to fend off today’s sophisticated and targeted attacks. Security has to be recognized as an equal requirement to compliance rather than merely an extension of it.
Join us for a special HIPAA Chat as we invite David Finn, Health IT Officer for Symantec, for a conversation on the findings of the report with our host David Harlow. We will leave time for Q&A. Additionally, a copy of the report will be sent to all registrants post event.
