The escalating frequency of cyber attacks targeting the healthcare sector prompts a fundamental question among industry leaders: “What else can we do to safeguard our patients?” Faced with expanding IT budgets, constrained expertise availability, and a persistent fear of ransomware and data breaches, hospitals are constantly seeking clear, actionable, and cost-effective protective strategies.

In response to these challenges, the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services has recently unveiled new Cybersecurity Performance Guidance. Categorized into Essential and Enhanced Goals, this guidance offers straightforward checklists essential for fortifying defenses against cyber threats targeting healthcare institutions.

Join Answers Media Network and leading healthcare researchers from Cynerio, Amazon and Sodexo as they dive deeper into the latest HHS guidance. The discussion will encompass an exploration of the relationships between the Essential and Enhanced Goals and provide insights into quickly implementing the newly delineated protective measures.
