Presented by

Mike Hanley Program Manager for Research and Development at Duo Labs & Steve Won, Product Manager at Duo Security

About this talk

The Duo Labs research team has pinpointed some of the most significant reasons that medical records are among the easiest of any type of data to steal. For example, Duo Labs found that 76 percent of healthcare customers are running Windows 7, with 500+ known vulnerabilities to exploit. It only takes one outdated device for a hacker to exploit a known vulnerability. The real-world implication? A hacker gains access to patient records, including birthdates, social security numbers, medical, financial, and insurance information. Find out how to prevent hackers from gaining access to healthcare data instead of having to react to some of the recent ransomware attacks on healthcare organizations around the world. In this webinar, you will learn: The top 10 reasons healthcare data is so at risk How it only takes one “open door” to steal passwords, gain access to entire databases of patient information, and install malware, making your organization a ransomware target The top 5 fundamental and easy “good hygiene” steps you can take today
