Securing Health Care in a Complex World

April 21, 2021 | Boosting cybersecurity despite an infrastructure of complex technologies & third-party supply chains  

Health delivery organizations face some pressing challenges as growing interoperability and digitalization combine with advanced technologies -- such as artificial intelligence, big data and machine learning -- to automate health care services and improve patient outcomes. One of these areas is the growing number of medical and other health care internet of things (IoT) devices. Another is the growing number of third-party vendors and concerns about how to secure the software and hardware supply chain.

Join John Riggi, the American Hospital Association's senior advisor for cybersecurity and risk, as he leads a discussion on how to conquer these challenges. He'll be joined by security experts from IBM and Cylera, as well as the chief information security officer from Robert Wood Johnson Barnabas Health, to present their insights from an international, national and health system level.

Attendees Will Learn:

  • How complex the health care threat surface has become – the result of new innovative technologies, a proliferation of different vendors and their respective supply chains
  • The effectiveness of current asset management and risk controls, the implications of a supply chain attack on your organization
  • New levels of automation and integration to protect hospitals and patients.
  • Industry-leading practices and the potential for their adoption in your organization
