Cyber Threats to the Security of Health Information are at Crisis levels. The latest threats are caused by two security flaws called "Meltdown" and "Spectre" in nearly all "chips" - microprocessors installed in electronic devices like computers, smartphones and tablets. Meltdown and Spectre, could allow hackers to lift passwords, photos, documents and other data from electronic devices and cloud computing services used by the entire Healthcare Industry. Healthcare continues to be the biggest target for Criminal Ransomware attacks and new types of Ransomware are particularly dangerous. They not only lock up your information system - they steal Protected Health Information (PHI). Covered Entities and Business Associates of all types and sizes are prime targets because disruption of healthcare operations, even for a brief period, can result in catastrophic harm to patients. Criminal hackers don't need to be sophisticated to mount an attack - they simply trick employees to open a "phishing" email or click on an Internet link. Ransomware is the easiest and safest way for cyber-criminals to extort money from the Healthcare Industry.

You should attend this session to learn how to find and follow the HIPAA Rules which provide an easy, step-by-step guide to prevent, prepare for, respond to and recover from a Cyber Attack.
