Las Vegas - Venetian Convention Center
Marcello 4401

Description

In 2016, the Ponemon Institute revealed that nearly 90% of healthcare organizations had suffered a data breach in the previous 2 years. Often overlooked in the healthcare cybersecurity discussion, post-acute care providers face the same threats and regulations as acute care organizations. Covenant Care, a national post-acute care organization centered in Aliso Viejo, California, provides quality 24-hour a day care ranging from short-term rehabilitation therapy to skilled nursing care. With over 8,000 healthcare professionals located across 56 locations in seven states, Covenant Care faced a number of challenges trying to ensure the security and role-based access of their information. Find out how they utilized an identity and access management (IDAM) system with a centralized database with a set of network and system visibility tools and a series of preventative measures to improve their cybersecurity program and help reduce costs.

Learning Objectives: 

  • Identify current healthcare privacy and cybersecurity risks
  • Examine the current cybersecurity risks of a national post-acute care organization and practical risk mitigation strategies
  • Discuss the key benefits of utilizing a centralized approach to identity access management
  • Describe how the growing threat of ransomware has been approached by improving vulnerability management, configuration management, and user education, including phishing campaigns
