A cyber attack on any organization is dangerous. A cyber attack on a critical healthcare environment can be a matter of life and death. Sadly, it’s easier than ever for sophisticated cyber actors to get a toehold on your sensitive healthcare network: elevating permissions and gaining access to sensitive healthcare systems and data. Check out our recent webinar, featuring QOMPLX CISCO Andy Jaquith and Dale Nordenberg, M.D.: Authentication Attacks & Emergent Cyber Threats to Healthcare webinar.
Though it should be otherwise, hospitals and other healthcare providers are not exempted from the kinds of disruptive attacks that have become commonplace in recent years. In 2017, for example, the WannaCry malware raced through hospitals that were part of the United Kingdom's National Health System, disrupting or delaying medical procedures for thousands. More recently, medical providers and their partners have been the target of ransomware attacks that hold hospital IT- and even clinical systems hostage.
Sadly, it’s easier than ever for sophisticated cyber actors to get a toehold on your sensitive healthcare network: elevating permissions and gaining access to sensitive healthcare systems and data. That's why QOMPLX dug deep into threats to healthcare environments in our latest webinar: Authentication Attacks & Emergent Cyber Threats to Healthcare, which took place on July 1, 2020. If you didn't get a chance to attend the live webinar, you can view a video of the conversation by registering at the link provided above.
The webinar features: Andy Jaquith, QOMPLX CISO and General Manager of the Cyber Business Unit at QOMPLX, as well as the writer of “Security Metrics: Replacing Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt,” a best-seller in the field. Andy is joined by Dale Nordenberg, MD and Joshua Justice to discuss emergent cyber threats to healthcare. Dr. Nordenberg is Executive Director, Medical Device Innovation, Safety, and Security Consortium (MDISS). Mr. Justice is an Intelligence & Operations Analysis at the Health-ISAC (Health Information Sharing and Analysis Center).
The panel is moderated by Paul Roberts, Editor in Chief at The Security Ledger and Senior Editor at QOMPLX.
“You don’t want to be an interesting patient,” says Dr. Nordenberg. That's true in cyber security, as well. And, unfortunately, healthcare is a very interesting patient, in part because of the natural evolution of the network. rather than being built as a pre-planned system.
