Evolver VP and Chief Solutions Architect Chip Block will speak this week at the virtual FAIRCON on the topic of Emergency Management Planning and Preparedness. The virtual event is scheduled for 2:30 PM Eastern Time on Wednesday, October 20.
Focusing on the critical area of cybersecurity as it relates to healthcare, ACT-IAC hosts 2017 Cybersecurity Forum: Prescription for Healthcare Cyber.
Speakers will discuss challenges and barriers the health care industry encounters when securing itself against cyber-attacks.
Greater understanding and guidance are needed to help the healthcare industry bolster information security and reduce their organization’s footprint to cyber threats. In reality, cybersecurity is an enterprise-wide risk management issue that needs to be addressed from a strategic, cross-sector, supply chain, and economic perspective.
Register for this event on the ACT-IAC website.
The keynote speaker for the forum is Christopher Wlaschin, Executive Director and Chief Information Security Officer, Department of Health and Human Services.
During the half day cybersecurity forum, there will be three panel discussions:
Civilian Healthcare Panel – Expansion and enhancement of threat sharing information in regards to Cybersecurity Information Sharing Act (CISA)
Defense Healthcare Panel – What practices has DoD applied to transfer patients between Defense Health and Commercial Health facilities?
Commercial Healthcare Panel – How government is working with healthcare providers to address the numerous risks associated with Medical Devices and IoT?
Executives with direct experience in each of these areas listed above will discuss how they have implemented strategies and safeguards to address evolving cybersecurity threats.
Additionally, the panel will explore technology barriers and gaps required to effectively share information and threat intelligence across healthcare sectors.
