4A Healthcare Data Security & Privacy Symposium

Webcast Series and Symposium

Healthcare organizations have been going through a period of extraordinary change while facing an array of critical data security and privacy challenges. No one wants to become the next data breach headline, but the reality of tight budgets, tight deadlines and conflicting priorities makes effective management of cyber risk especially challenging today.

This series of content-rich webcasts will set the stage for our intensive, interactive sessions this fall at Drexel LeBow in Philadelphia.  Hear from, and engage with regulators, law enforcement and healthcare professionals on the front lines in the field who are effectively managing cyber risks under the same regulatory, time and resource constraints as you.

The Healthcare Data Breach & Privacy Symposium is structured for dialogue and engagement with professionals who will share their experiences and discuss what works and what doesn’t in addressing today’s health data security and privacy challenges. They each bring a variety of vital perspectives with backgrounds in health information technology security, big data, population health, medical device and mobile health app development, legal, risk management and insurance, privacy and regulatory compliance, IT investment and more.
