The Webinar Wednesday series continued this week with “Why Cybersecurity is Difficult to Achieve for Healthcare Organizations.” The webinar was sponsored by Armis and eligible for 1 credit from the ACI.
This 60-minute webinar featured experts Curtis Simpson, CISO, and Tom Mayblum, senior product manager, as they answered pressing cybersecurity questions that all health care organizations need to answer to protect themselves and their patients.
As health care institutions have been grappling with the overwhelming impact of COVID-19, many have also been fighting a second battle against hackers. Malicious hackers know that health care organizations continue to be hyper-focused on addressing the pandemic, making them prime targets for ransomware. At the same time, they continue to deploy connected medical devices to help doctors, nurses and clinicians deliver faster, higher-quality care. But these devices also create an attack surface that most health care delivery organizations have difficulty seeing and securing. And when it comes to connected medical devices, poor cybersecurity poses risks to patient safety and puts millions at risk.
Attendees enjoyed the valuable insights. In a post-webinar survey they were asked, “What did you like most about today’s webinar?”
“Specific examples of ransomware and specific examples of how segregated networks like GEs are not invulnerable,” said Biomedical Technologist
“Information was excellent,” CE Manager V. Vaglivielo said.
“Very informative and well presented,” Clinical System Support Lead B. Haws said.
