Abstract: Both in our lives as healthcare professionals as well as our personal lives, cybersecurity has become an ever-present topic. Not that we want it to, but we can’t make it go away either. This session will review cybersecurity trends and how they impact your role-whether you're a clinician, administrator, business leader, or technician. We will review relevant statistics, look at some examples and analyze how security incidents have impacted healthcare organizations beyond the pure technical scope.
Depending on their role, healthcare staff have different cybersecurity responsibilities and make decisions on a daily basis – whether it’s purchasing new equipment and software, or clicking on an attachment in an email – that impact an organization’s foundation of cybersecurity as well as its overall security resilience. Having all stakeholders understand their role and their security risk factors
helps an organization to move from a reactive to a holistic and proactive security posture.
