SANS and the National Health Information Sharing & Analysis Center (NH-ISAC) are pleased to announce the 3nd Annual Healthcare Cyber Security Summit.
Healthcare is undergoing major changes. Patients are demanding more convenient and personalized care. Digital health is changing the way that doctors and patients interact. New technologies allow patients to track their own health and generate data that was previously not available to care providers. Additionally, health information exchanges are being created to enable access to electronic medical records across disparate organizations.
Hospitals, clinics, and health plans are faced with the challenge of reducing costs while maintaining quality. With the number of patients expected to rise how can hospitals treat patients with the limited number of beds and staff on hand?
Patient Centered Disease Management, shifts care delivery away from traditional hospitals to ACO's and PCMH environments, by leveraging technologies such as telemedicine in the cloud environment.
Medical Devices that offer life giving or life sustaining benefits are vulnerable with thousands of smart phones accessing the IDN's Wi-Fi-environment every day.
Moreover, new regulations are having a big effect on health insurance plans, requiring coordination with state health insurance exchanges.

Healthcare Cyber Security Summit
With these new business opportunities come new challenges.
How can security teams continue to defend the organization against conventional threats while evolving to meet nefarious threats from Nation States? What can security do to proactively enable new business opportunities? How can you get the business to trust security enough to get a seat at the table?
