CIOs Conquering Cybersecurity Challenges

Cybersecurity is at the top of the agenda for healthcare leaders, and CIOs are ready to combat ongoing threats to their hospitals and health systems. In 2016 alone, a study from IBM and Ponemon Institute found that breaches in the U.S. healthcare field cost $6.2 billion each year and approximately 90% of hospitals have reported a breach in the past two years. These statistics cannot be ignored, and in order for CIOs to confidently ensure their patients that medical records in their system are secure, they must get the C-Suite involved and prepare their teams to take proactive measures to prevent potential cyber attacks.

From June 4th – 6th 2017, CIOs from leading hospitals and health systems will come together to attend the Healthcare IT Institute at the Hilton Head Island Resort & Spa, Hilton Head Island, SC to strategize on how best to tackle top healthcare IT challenges. A few of the CIOs in attendance - Bipin Karunakaran, VP Enterprise Data Management at Geisinger Health System; Tom Stafford, VP & CIO at Halifax Health, and Terrence Ziemniak, CISO at Carolinas Healthcare System – will be leading a lively and interactive discussion on top strategies, tips and tactics to effectively meet the cybersecurity challenge.

During their session they will encourage their CIO peers to share their insights and experiences whilst exploring topics such as predicting and preventing cyber breaches, maintaining resources to secure patient-generated data, creating an analytics and disaster recovery plan, ensuring compliance with regulations across departments, training staff to be vigilant regarding internet browsing and communicating cyber threats to the CEO. Secure your seat to join the conversation.
