Cybersecurity in Healthcare – Protecting Patient Data
The COVID-19 pandemic has presented continuously evolving challenges to healthcare providers. The shift to ‘virtual’ support, where patients access healthcare data through apps and mobile devices, has resulted in the threat landscape becoming more complex and has exposed vulnerabilities among healthcare providers that threat actors are taking advantage of through data breaches. Currently, cyberattacks account for more than half of the data breaches in the healthcare industry. With the new challenges and vulnerabilities currently being experienced, it’s important to understand exactly who is protecting personally identifiable information(PII) and personal health information (PHI) and the procedures in place that defend against data breaches.
In this webinar, you will learn:
- Strategies for protection of cyberattacks in the healthcare industry.
- Telemedicine privacy risks and security considerations.
- The importance of the assessment exercise for HIPAA.
- True stories detailing healthcare providers living through a cyberattack.
