PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
Boston, MA - December 5 - 7, 2016
With each passing day, the frequency and complexity of security threat and breach is expanding. Last year, 170,000,000 identify records were compromised through a series of breaches - 112,000,000 from healthcare alone.
Managing threat and risk has become convoluted due to many factors such as:
- Traditional data boundaries no longer exist
- The concept of connectivity from any device, anytime, anywhere has expanded access control and business application connectivity challenges
- The concept of open access for today's "connected" devices (IoT), has opened up questions like - what am I actually connecting to, is it authorized and safe, and how am I sure the data exchange is meeting policy?
As a result, information security risk management has become a very difficult task, requiring a detailed understanding of threat and risk, a complete model to determine "real and measurable" risk, and a comprehensive program of risk governance.
We will discuss the current state of the threat, the types of attacks and techniques that are being executed, and review an information security risk management program strategy that can help healthcare organizations meet this threat head on and develop a plan for moving their existing risk into an acceptable range.
