Topic: 4 Industry Leaders Discuss Rising Threats and Minimizing Risks
It has been six years since our first panel discussion addressing the growing and alarming rise of cybersecurity threats to healthcare. In the ensuing years, data breaches and ransomware attacks continue to plague the industry. In fact, through double extortion, the two attacks are often combined.
The COVID-19 pandemic and the increased usage of telehealth and connected personal and medical devices have led to an exponential volume of incidents, enticing more malicious actors and more sophisticated attacks. And while technology advancements in Cloud, IoT, and 5G offer organizations the chance to modernize their IT infrastructure, cybersecurity threats are advancing on parallel lines as digital healthcare evolves.
On this year’s panel discussion, our experts from around the industry will discuss the challenges healthcare organizations face, what the future may hold, and what can be done to fortify security protocols and guardrails to minimize risk.
