Secure World - Protecting Healthcare from Email Fraud Attacks

Presented by

Stephen Dougherty, Financial Fraud Investigator, U.S. Secret Service & Ryan Witt, Managing Director Healthcare, Proofpoint

About this talk

Cybercriminals use sophisticated techniques to target health institutions and increasingly favor email fraud attacks. They’ve mastered social engineering lures to compromise email accounts, impersonate employees and incrementally gain access to critical medical systems. A single compromised email account can lead to a situation where an organization can’t provide patient care, where they are forced to stop medical procedures, or even re-create medical records from scratch because of the severity of the attack. A strong cybersecurity posture directly relates to healthcare’s overarching mission of providing safe, effective patient care. Join us for this one-hour session to explore: • What groups your organization are most heavily targeted by threat actors • Hardening your email defenses and identifying fraud • Protecting sensitive data against fraud attacks and other exploits
