EHRs (Electronic Healthcare Records) are like catnip for hackers! The fact is, despite HIPAA and the HITECH Act, the healthcare industry is woefully unprepared to defend ePHI (electronic Protected Health Information).
Palo Alto, CA (PRWEB) May 19, 2015
SafeLogic, the company re-inventing how encryption is delivered, announced that CEO Ray Potter will serve as a panelist on (ISC)2’s ThinkTank webinar, titled “From the Trenches – Leading Practices in Securing Healthcare Records” on May 21, 2015.
As a follow-up to his presentation on security for wearable devices at the 2014 (ISC)2 Security Congress, SafeLogic’s visionary founder Ray Potter will once more share his experiences and insight with (ISC)2’s audience. Potter will address the current state and strategy of healthcare data security alongside moderator Brandon Dunlap of Brightfly and fellow panelists Brian Rappach, IS Security Project Leader at TriHealth and Eric Walter, Director of Information Security & CISO at University of Kansas Medical Center.
In this webcast, attendees will learn:
- Details on recent high profile healthcare-related data breaches
- Why Electronic Health Records (EHRs) have become such popular targets for hackers
- How the healthcare industry has responded to these hacks
- Best practices for data security and encryption in HIPAA-sensitive deployments
“EHRs (Electronic Healthcare Records) are like catnip for hackers,” quipped Potter. “The fact is, despite HIPAA and the HITECH Act, the healthcare industry is woefully unprepared to defend ePHI (electronic Protected Health Information). My hope is that through platforms like (ISC)2, we can increase traction with data protection strategies that are proven and working in other verticals.”
The webinar will include live a Q&A session with the panelists and will begin on Thursday, May 21, 2015 at 10:00 AM Pacific Time / 1:00 PM Eastern Time. It will be hosted by BrightTalk, sponsored by Sophos, and scheduled for 75 minutes. Registration is open now.
