(PRWEB) April 10, 2018
St. Louis, MO: The April 11th, “Healthcare Hackers Webinar,” will review the history of disturbing breaches of protected patient data and how technology can prevent them.
These breaches have resulted in millions of dollars in fines, lost revenue, and reduced patient loyalty.

The hacking group known as TheDarkOverlord has remained active and made its presence known in a series of high-profile breaches including local small medical practices in the St. Louis area.
The same group has remained active with multiple attacks, the most recent being 16,428 patient records Sept, 2017 from SMART (“Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation Therapy”) in Massachusetts. Register and attend the webinar to learn more.
Most Dangerous Hacked Medical Devices
Hacked medical devices could be the next big security nightmare. There are currently between 10 and 15 connected devices per hospital bed in the United States, many of which are vulnerable to attack. Anything that connects wirelessly to other equipment can be compromised, with historically low levels of security on medical instruments and embedded devices already linked to a number of security attacks.

Healthcare Hackers Webinar - Best Practices for Vulnerability Assessment and Penetration Testing

The April webinar will focus on how to protect patient data using “vulnerability and penetration testing” techniques and technology.
“It’s easy to feel helpless because of the number of hacking incidents in the news. However, it’s easier to secure a small facility because of fewer Internet connections and less hardware to secure. Mr. Espinosa and I will go over affordable and easy solutions that make the hackers look elsewhere,” says Gerald Caussade, CEO, HIPAAComplete.
