Keynote - The Current State of Healthcare & Cybersecurity

In this opening keynote, Special Agent M.K. Palmore will describe the current state of the Cybersecurity Threat Landscape with a particular focus on Healthcare. Drawing from his experience as a veteran cybercrime fighter, MK blends memorable anecdotes with cutting-edge insights to heighten awareness of the perils of our uber-connected world. As he delves into the cyber-underworld and the new kinds of threats that can lead to tomorrow’s breaches and insider risks, he offers audiences guidance and practical steps for thinking like the adversary, while managing cyber risks and staying ahead of the bad guys.

Compare Your Privacy & Security Programs with Your Peers - Findings from CynergisTek's Annual Report 

CynergisTek will present its 2nd Annual Report an analysis of healthcare’s readiness against the NIST CSF and the HIPAA Security Rule with an evaluation of Business Associates and Privacy readiness. This panel discussion will present an overview of the company’s 2019 Annual Report including trends, insights, and recommendations for moving forward. Experts, from executives to analysts, will illustrate what we saw across the industry CY2018 and where we may be going in 2019 and beyond. Attendees will receive a copy of the 2019 report.

The Behind the Scenes of a Breach Experience

CynergisTek’s Marti Arvin, who has led multiple provider organizations through the breach experience prior to joining CynergisTek and many since, will moderate a panel of diverse experts and practitioners who have dealt with the breaches firsthand and who will share observations from their unique perspectives - - regulator/enforcer, CIO, and security consultant. From incident discovery through the many facets of recovery and resumption, this panel seeks to provide some lessons learned to help others BEFORE they have an incident.

California & Beyond: Impacts of New State Data Protection & Privacy Laws 

David Holtzman, an Executive Advisor at CynergisTek, focused on privacy and former Senior Advisor on HIT and Privacy at HHS Office of Civil Rights, will talk about the changes being driven in privacy at the state level. The attention given the California Consumer Privacy Act shines a light on the work of other states to establish data privacy and cybersecurity standards to safeguard data containing consumers’ personally identifiable information (PII). What will it mean to us as individuals? To healthcare, specifically, and to our business relationships inside and outside the industry.

It's Not All About Technology: Creating a Culture of Privacy & Security 

The cyber defenders are clearly outnumbered by attackers. But it isn’t just “outsiders.” And technology and tools alone won’t turn the tide. What can we do inside our organization, culturally, to better protect our organizations, our patients, and our workforce? This panel session will discuss how changing the healthcare culture can enhance security and privacy by using your people to improve compliance, risk analysis, and remediation, turning every single person into a privacy, security and compliance officer. Four experienced CISOs with years of experience share some of their ideas on how to achieve this goal.

Outcome of the 405d Workgroup & Recommendations 

As a Member of the HHS Cybersecurity Task Force and the 405(d) Task Group of the Healthcare Services Sector Coordinating Council, David will present details of the 405(d). He will share his unique perspective having served on both workgroups and will present some background on the Cyber Security Act (CSA) of 2015, section 405(d) - - the output, industry reception and what is coming next for the Healthcare and Public Health Coordinating Councils.

Managing Vendor Risks Panel 

Nearly a third of the incidents experienced in healthcare involve a third-party service provider or business associate. Incidents with covered entities result from both the actions or inaction of third-party partners. Lack of understanding risk, the inadequate setting of expectations, poor engagement oversight, lack of monitoring, and inadequate breach preparation often leaves covered entities responsible for risk, costs, and reputational fallout. This session includes three panelists with programs geared towards applying best practices to mitigate third-party risk.

AI, 5G, IoT & Data in Transit: Four Threats to Watch in 2019

As you think about what security to use and how to deploy it in advance of new cyber threats, this session will help identify the trends and activities most likely to affect your organization - - current and future. In anticipating the major cybersecurity and privacy trends for the coming year, you can find plenty of clues in the events of the past 12 months. Among the now familiar forms of attack, cyber hacks of major corporate systems and websites continued in 2018 and will inevitably be part of the 2019 cybersecurity scene. In addition to those familiar trends, we’ll also see new pressures around AI, 5G, new legislative and regulatory activities, and Supply Chain.

Strategies for Managing Non-traditional Endpoint Security: From Assessment to Managed Services

When is an endpoint not an endpoint? When it is a medical device. While the processes and approaches are similar - - the risk and complexity surrounding medical devices are very different. IT, Security, and Clinical Engineering may understand the number and type of medical devices connected to the network, those that contain ePHI, and the security vulnerabilities of these devices. But medical devices do not follow the same rules as other networked devices.

After inventory, providers must:
• Develop a cybersecurity strategy around medical devices
• Manage the many devices connected to the network
• Remediate identified risks on these devices

Medical device cybersecurity programs should not only protect patient health information and sensitive data, but it will also help your organization assure uninterrupted quality care and reduce risk to clinical operations in a managed and secured digital health environment.

Responding to Cybersecurity Skills Shortage - Education & Other Initiatives 

From vendor agnostic, standards and skills-based training, to a commitment to inspiring the next generation to join the industry in the first place, everyone demanding a solution to cybersecurity skills shortage today needs to step up and become part of the solution. This discussion will talk about educational initiatives and industry initiatives in the space. It will also address some specific programs in place, as well as options being discussed by the government and industry to fill the gap. This session, moderated by CynergisTek’s CEO, Mac McMillan promises to be lively and enlightening.

Cybersecurity & Privacy Challenges 

This panel will address new and continuing challenges for professionals in healthcare security, privacy, and compliance. It will leverage the experience of experts to illustrate changes in focus, changes in the threat environment and new attitudes about privacy and security all aimed at the healthcare vertical. This panel seeks to be an interactive discussion between the audience and panel members, focused on identifying the key challenges CISOs, CPOs, and compliance professionals need to address today and the future. From the continuous challenge of managing accounts to greater distribution of the enterprise to the role of AI in both offense and defense.

CIO and Board View of Cybersecurity 

According to John Halamka, "Today's CIO is no longer an engineering expert at provisioning hardware and software. The CIO broadly communicates, convenes governance groups and supports innovation." While few would argue the role is changing what does that mean for cybersecurity? Most Boards are not adequately addressing cybersecurity today, what will these shifts in the activities of the CIO mean for cyber? Expanded functions, like digital transformation and social media, may elevate the role of the CIO but not if security is not built into that transformation. How will the paradigm shift affecting CIOs change the Board relationship, and will it complicate or ease discussions and focus on cyber or make it even more difficult? Four veteran CIOs will lead this discussion which will hopefully provide a glimpse into the future.
