Moderator: Frank J. Cilluffo, Associate Vice President and Director, Center for Cyber and Homeland Security, George Washington University

Earlier this year, a California hospital paid a ransom to hackers to regain access to its own EMRs just another sign of the virtual threats faced by the healthcare community. From simple malware infections and network failures to the potential hacking of medical devices, patient portals, EMRs, and mobile apps, the healthcare industry has stamped this issue urgent. Of equal concern is the fact that some intrusions can take months to detect, further magnifying the threat to patient care. Join the discussion to hear about how hospitals and healthcare systems can prioritize and implement systemwide cybersecurity standards and processes to keep pace with the industry’s increasing reliance on technology.
