The pandemic has had a drastic effect on the delivery of healthcare in the U.S., beyond the incredible strain of providing care to Covid-19 patients. For instance, telehealth use has exploded, as doctors turn to virtual visits instead of appointments in their offices. But the security of healthcare IT and OT systems lags far behind most other sectors.  


In October 2020, the FBI, Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), and Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency issued an alert to the healthcare and public health sector that ransomware was increasingly targeting their networks and networked devices. The HHS inspector general issued a report in June that found that neither the Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services nor the four external Medicare Accrediting Organizations include any cybersecurity requirements. 


Attend this webinar to hear leaders from government, healthcare, and industry review the security needs of the healthcare industry and its unique responsibilities for data protection.
