Presenting the Case for Cybersecurity Education of Clinicians
1:00pm - 2:00pmWednesday, February 13
Orlando - Orange County Convention Center
With care-interrupting cyberattacks impacting increasingly interconnected health delivery systems, a new approach to cybersecurity is needed that fosters partnership and collaboration between technical and non-technical security roles, including clinical cybersecurity leaders. All need to understand how daily decisions impact an organization’s security exposure, starting with the need to include cybersecurity during purchasing and replacement planning, considering security in the context of clinical workflows, and the need for technical/clinical tradeoff decisions in response to a cyber-incident. Further, as patients may have questions about their device’s cyber risks, clinicians need to understand impact on patients’ trust and treatment decisions and be able to provide advice. This session will explore how organizations can improve cybersecurity through a partnership between security-educated clinicians and security professionals that balances needs for health, safety AND security.
