As noted in the HHS HICP report, healthcare’s traditional mission has expanded beyond protection and care for patients to include defense against cyberattacks. Hospitals today must recognize that their employees are now the primary focus of cyberattacks; identify the most vulnerable job categories; and deploy strategies to help protect against cyberattacks and improve patient safety. In this presentation, a CISO from a Midwest-based health system will describe her hands-on experiences with cybersecurity program implementation; provide steps that security teams can deploy to safeguard patient safety; and offer techniques for helping hospital executives to realize the need for a robust cybersecurity posture. In outlining the link between cybersecurity and patient safety, the presentation will also feature new threat intelligence that identifies the healthcare job categories most vulnerable to attack and demonstrate how these vulnerabilities can put patient safety at risk.
