About this talk

The 2019 HMSS Cybersecurity Survey indicated that email is the initial point of compromise for healthcare cyber-attacks, with Business Email Compromise (BEC) becoming the favored tactic by cybercriminals. Because BEC emails do not carry malicious payload and are narrowly targeted, it’s difficult for health institutions to detect these attacks. With overall losses of more than $1.7 billion in 2019, BEC attacks are quickly becoming a significant headache for healthcare CISOs. Join us for a deep dive into the dos and don’ts when it comes to BEC, and best practices to mitigate against risk of this vital attack vector.
