Preventing Vulnerabilities in Healthcare From Affecting Patient Care
June 7th, 2018 1:00PM ET
Healthcare organizations have become an attractive target for cyberattackers as patient data has grown in value on the black market. Despite this growing attraction among cybercriminals, the health systems, hospitals, and physician practices have lagged behind in dedicating the necessary time and resources to address numerous vulnerabilities in their networks and systems that these bad actors can exploit.
Vulnerability management provides a means for identifying and remediating unknown weaknesses in digital and physical environments. New technology allows IT departments to have greater control over and visibility into how users interact with patient data in real time. This technology, however, should not replace important education and training aimed at eliminating vulnerabilities caused by both malicious and haphazard human behavior.
In this presentation, Christiana Care Health System’s Cybersecurity Resiliency Program Manager Gabriel Doncel, CISSP, will detail strategies for managing vulnerabilities in a healthcare environment that address administrative, physical, and technical factors that pose threats to health data security and privacy.
Establishing a method for collecting, monitoring, and analyzing networks for risks
Educating and training staff on the impact of physical and IT vulnerabilities
Using threat exposure analytics to inform vulnerability management efforts
Prioritizing remediation of identified vulnerabilities
