Thursday May 19, 2016 | 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT

Healthcare organizations have become highly targeted by cyber-attackers as the value of stolen, protected health information becomes greater than the value of stolen credit cards.

Also learn how a prevention-focused approach to securing clinical systems is the best way to stop cyber attacks in hospital IT environments. 

Learning Objectives:

  • Explain the latest cyber threats facing the healthcare industry
  • Demonstrate why next-generation security products are necessary to combat the latest threats
  • Describe how ransomware works and what IT leadership should do to prevent it
