Not If But When: Preventing the Next Generation of Security Attacks in Healthcare

Wednesday, September 14, 2016 | 1:00 p.m. ET, 12:00 p.m. CT

Cybersecurity is more than just a buzzword. In today's climate, there are new, more sophisticated attacks on the horizon and healthcare organizations need strategies and protection plans in place that extend across the entire enterprise.

Research indicates providers could pay up to $233 for each compromised patient record in a data breach. A hack that affects 3 million people could end up costing that organization at least $7 million. And experts agree: It's about about if but when a cyberattack occurs. Will your organization be ready?

Join Healthcare Informatics and a multi-disciplinary panel of experts as we discuss the findings from the recent Healthcare Informatics research report "Not If But When: Preventing the Next Generation of Security Attacks in Healthcare." Learn how data breach costs go far beyond fines and the workflows and processes required to help healthcare organizations of any size take better control of security endeavors.

Panelists in this webinar include experts from Kelsey-Seybold Clinic and Cooper University Healthcare.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe how healthcare organizations can better prepare for next gen cyber security attacks
  • Summarize the current security threat landscape, including spear-phising attacks and ransomware
  • Examine challenges involved in implementing sustainable cybersecurity plans
  • Relate why it's so important for healthcare organizations to be open and transparent about cybersecurity strategies across the enterprise

Registrants of this webinar will receive an advance copy of the Healthcare Informatics research report, titled: "Not If But When: Preventing the Next Generation of Security Attacks in Healthcare"

Healthcare Informatics has been approved by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) to award a total of 1.0 hours of continuing education credits for "Not If But When: Preventing the Next Generation of Security Attacks in Healthcare."  CHIME Members may claim their CEUs for this program by entering them on the CHIME website at
