Healthcare Threat Briefing: Keeping Your People Secure

Presented by

Ryan Witt, Resident Healthcare CISO & Chair for Healthcare Customer Advisory Board

About this talk

Cyber criminals use sophisticated techniques to target health institutions with ransomware attacks, imposter emails and other exploits. In most cases, obtaining credentials is the start of the attack chain, so cyber criminals have mastered social engineering to create targeted messages that are compelling and relevant to the receiver. Indeed, people have become healthcare’s most prominent threat vector, and the industry must protect the human element against the heightened volume of advanced threats. In this 30-minute healthcare threat briefing, we will discuss new threat intelligence research that can help healthcare organizations better understand today’s advanced attacks exploiting human flaws. Using this research, we will demonstrate how these vulnerabilities can put healthcare institutions at risk and discuss how to build a strategy that: - Reveals who is targeted - Combat attacks before they reach your users - Offers techniques for a more robust cybersecurity posture
