PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - December 5 - 7, 2016
Tom Walsh is a nationally recognized speaker and a co-author of four books on healthcare information security. Tom has more than 22 years of information security experience, and he and his business partners assist healthcare organizations throughout the country with their information security programs.
Prior to starting his healthcare consulting business in 2003, Tom’s experience included being the first information security manager for a large, multi-hospital healthcare system in Kansas City.
Tom Walsh has years of experience developing, improving, and guiding security initiatives for healthcare organizations and businesses in other industries. It’s safe to say he’s seen it all, the good, the bad, and the ugly.
In this session, Tom draws on his years of experience to give attendees a set of critical best practices for effective identity and access management (IAM).
Done correctly, IAM facilitates an organization's business goals, combining process and technology to allow the right individuals access to the right resources for the right reasons. But a faulty approach to IAM opens the door to inappropriate access to sensitive data and increases the risk of a major compliance violation and/or breach.
When it comes to IAM, healthcare organizations must get it right - for their patients and their business - and Tom will help attendees do just that.
