Monday, October 15th at 2:20pm | DAY ONE
Evolutions in People, Processes and Technology

The changing world of cyberspace can make information security management feel like navigating travel to a distant planet. It can be daunting. Fortunately, the NIST Cybersecurity Framework is a cost-effective, easy to understand guide to help healthcare organizations better manage and reduce cyber risk.

In this session, Brian Selfridge and Anahi Santiago use the framework to guide a discussion on how healthcare security has evolved from prevention to response. Attendees will learn how security standards like the NIST CSF can be applied to respond and recover from attacks of all shapes and sizes.

Key discussion points:

  • Evolutions in the people, process, and technology needed to support the NIST CSF areas for respond and recover phases.

  • Security automation tools.

  • Establish a plan to facilitate rapid, efficient response to reduce the impact of a breach.

  • Lead an internal cultural shift to change attitudes regarding breach response planning.

  • Discuss where the information security role is headed over the next 3-5 years and beyond.
