Cyber First Response: Protecting the US Healthcare System Against Advanced Cyber Threats

This event qualifies for 1 CPEs

The cost of cyber crime is often calculated in terms of financial loss, inconvenience, or reputational damage. But when it comes to hospitals and healthcare systems, the harm caused by a cyber-attack can be far worse. Ransomware-encrypted systems can delay the delivery of life-saving treatment, and data breaches can expose the personal data of vulnerable patients. 


During the COVID-19 pandemic, cyber attacks on health and hospital systems and their patients have escalated. Akamai and the Center for Internet Security (CIS) have partnered together to add their extensive resources and experience to your team. This partnership brings U.S. hospitals and other healthcare facilities a globally recognized, community-driven nonprofit responsible for industry-accepted best practices for securing IT systems and data, and the world’s largest and most trusted cloud security company.


Join this webinar to learn how Akamai and CIS deliver effective security that is contextual, accurate, and dynamic, without draining your resources or impacting performance.

  • Proactively protect staff and patients from targeted threats with dymanic domain inspection
