Assessing when a Vendor’s Security Incident Is a Breach
Tuesday, February 12 | 4:15pm - 5:15pm | W320

OCR reported third-party vendors to be the cause of, on average, 15 percent of all large breaches of protected health information (PHI). But data shows that these incidents are more likely to impact a disproportionate number of individuals as they often involve information systems handling large volumes of PHI belonging to a number of HIPAA covered entities.

Building Business Narratives to Sell Security to the Board
Wednesday, February 13 | 10:00am - 11:00am | W320

With massive cyber attacks such as WannaCry and NotPetya hitting the healthcare industry in the last few years, cybersecurity continues to be an area of significant vulnerability for provider organizations. While a CIO or CISO may appropriately understand the cybersecurity risks facing the organization and the resources needed to maintain an ongoing security program, selling cybersecurity at the board level continues to be a challenge.

How to Close Biomedical HIPAA Compliance and Security Gaps
Thursday, February 14 | 2:30pm - 3:30pm | W204A

Hospitals have a plethora of biomedical devices connected to the network and each device carries its own security and compliance concerns. Healthcare organizations typically keep biomed devices in use longer than other endpoint devices, sometimes for 15 years or longer. As a result, these devices are extremely susceptible to technical hacks because vulnerabilities cannot be patched. Given these devices are essential to delivering patient care, security issues can have implications on not only hospital operations, but patient safety as well.
