The State of Healthcare Cyber Risk: What You Need to Know and How to Respond

4A Security & Compliance CEO Ben Goodman will present a seminar on “The State of Health Care Cyber Risk: What You Need to Know and How to Respond” at two sessions (at 10:30 am and at 2:30 pm) at the Healthcare Businesswomen’s Association annual convention in Philadelphia on November 7, 2017. Mr. Goodman will be joined by Patricia Connelly, Executive Director, Corporate Governance at Drexel LeBow College of Business and two panelists to be announced.

The health care industry has been a prime target for cyber criminals and nation states for the last several years. Protecting the confidentiality of health care data from these threats is just one of the challenges we face. The integrity and availability of healthcare data are also critical considerations. As sophisticated cyber-attacks continue to grow more sophisticated and more widespread, this session is designed to provide practical takeaways and useful information attendees will be able to use every day.

This session will start with a panel discussion about current cyber threats facing various health care industry segments.  The discussion will include a Chief Information Security Officer at a large regional medical system who will describe how she defends against current cyber threats. She will be joined by another leader in charge of cyber security for medical devices at a global pharmaceutical company. Patricia Connelly, Executive Director of the Governance Institute at Drexel LeBow will bring the all-important board and C-suite perspective on cyber risk management.

The second half of the session will be dedicated to a highly interactive Cyber Threat Scenario with direct audience participation guiding the decision-making and impacting the outcome of the Scenario. Just as in real-world cyber threat incidents, the panelists who are responsible for defending against the cyber threats are not fully in control and they must face the consequences of the audience’s decisions.

Attendees will receive a Health Care Cyber Threat Scenario Workbook they can take back and use with their own organization.

About the event: Each fall, the HBA hosts hundreds of leaders from all sectors of healthcare, including pharmaceutical, biotechnology, medical device, hospital, payers and service companies, who gather to build business connections for a sustainable leadership advantage, learn from thought leaders to broaden perspectives and to expand their business acumen.

More than 900 attendees are expected for pre-conference seminars, exciting main-stage (plenary) presentations, pre-conference seminars, more than 20 interactive workshops, multiple network-building opportunities and social events, exhibit hall and more.

Workshop on Cyber Risk Quantification

Join us for a full agenda with leading cyber risk quantification experts from around the world. The day will include presentations from luminaries in this space.

In addition, several analysts have been provided with an anonymized data set that includes current and historical data from an actual large, complex healthcare organization. Attendees will learn about each presenter’s unique perspective and quantitative approach, as they share the results of their analysis of this live case study.

The presentations will be followed by a workshop and round table discussions where attendees sit with the experts and learn about their approaches to cyber risk quantification as they review the tools, techniques and models they used to analyze the case study.
