The October 14 webinar “How Hospital Hacks Happen” presented by Rich DeFabritus was eligible for 1 credit from the ACI. The Webinar Wednesday was made possible by sponsor CyberMDX.
DeFabritus continues to work to increase awareness of the existing cyber threat that faces hospitals and health care systems. As the threat continues to evolve, the impact is not just reputational or financial – it’s life-threatening. Hospitals need to be prepared for when a breach occurs. Specifically, DeFabritus provided an overview of the threat and the current state of health care cybersecurity; discussed methods attackers use to gain unauthorized access; and explained why they do it and what can be done to mitigate the risk of attack.
As the senior director of product marketing at CyberMDX, DeFabritus has more than 25 years of industry experience in product management and marketing. He previously worked for Avaya, Lucent Technologies and Telcordia Technologies.
About 100 attendees signed in for the live presentation with many more viewing a recording of the webinar online. Attendees for the live presentation provided valuable feedback including what they liked the most about the webinar.
