Vulnerability Assessment and Prioritization for a Modern Health IT Ecosystem

April 16th, 2019 1:00PM ET

As healthcare continues its push into more digitally connected technology, organizations continue to expand its threat surface and risk to exposure. Coupled with the exponential explosion of data growth and an increase in threat sophistication, health providers are finding it increasingly challenging to minimize this risk and optimize operations. To combat these challenges, it’s crucial for organizations to continuously identify and assess that risk across the cloud, virtual, remote, and local infrastructure. Monthly scanning is no longer enough when modern networks change every minute. Health providers need visibility into the entire network and infrastructure to fully understand the risks facing the entire ecosystem.

Jarrett is also a professor of medicine at Hofstra’s School of Medicine. He also has notable research experience, particularly around cybersecurity.
