February 19, 2017 — 08:00AM - 04:30PM EST


Cost: $335

Many of today’s most pressing cybersecurity challenges can be addressed with a prioritized list of cyber-hygiene best practices. This workshop will introduce participants to the Critical Security Controls, which are rapidly becoming accepted as the most recognized action plan to secure your organization. The Critical Security Controls were selected and defined by the US military as well as other respected security experts in government and private organizations.  Attendees will receive information on actual attacks that could have been stopped or mitigated through implementing good cyber-hygiene practices while focusing not only the best way to block known cyber-attacks but also best practices on mitigating the damage from attempted cyber-attacks.

Learning Objectives:

  • Define key cyber-hygiene steps such as knowing what is connected to your network, regularly updating applications, workstations, medical equipment, and other items.
  • Identify key technical security settings that should be part of any implementation plan that protects the security and privacy of information;
  • Examine the most important security controls and tools to protect an organization’s systems and data in today’s healthcare environment;
  • Discuss steps needed to implement the controls in your existing networks though an organized list and widespread use of cost-effective automation.
