Will You Be the Next Health System Held for Ransom?

All healthcare organizations should have anti-virus and firewalls in place – but that’s just not enough in today’s ever evolving world. As attackers grow more and more sophisticated, and ransomware becomes the new normal, healthcare organizations are struggling to keep up.

Hear from an expert panel of healthcare CIOs and CISOs on best practices for keeping ePHI out of the wrong hands, as well as innovative technologies that can be used to avoid becoming the next ransomware victim. Together they have decades of experience managing and securing healthcare networks, and will share practical ways you can secure yours.
