Detailed Agenda

10:45 AM– 11:00 AM: Welcome and Opening Remarks. Brief introduction to the start of the summit.
11:00 AM– 11:30 AM: Health Care Security Essentials, Best Practices. Healthcare organizations must balance the security, compliance, and innovation needed to succeed in the changing market. Gartner predicted that over 5 million new devices will connect every day in 2016. Many medical devices have become potential targets for cybercriminals. Concern grows for these devices and those hackers who can tamper with the operation and personal data attached to these devices. With the rapid numbers of wireless connectivity and smart phone apps, medical technology is increasingly exposed.

11:30 AM– 12:30 PM: Panel Discussion: Investing in Cybersecurity: What, When and How Any Healthcare organization collecting, storing, and transmitting patient data is at risk, starting at the physician practices, clinics, labs, hospitals, HMOs, PPOS, and insurers. Security professionals within these organizations need to assess how cybersecurity integrates into the risk management structure, strategic priorities and business objectives of your organization. Key topics will include:

• Risk exposure
• Your current Security Program
• Planning: Investments for Organizations change and growth
• Assessment of your existing Security Investment
• Identifying areas for improvement

12:30 PM– 1:30 PM: Networking Lunch: Enjoy a gourmet assortment of foods and network with your peers and industry experts.

1:30 PM– 2:00 PM: Cyber Breach Response –Disaster Recovery with Q&A
The Healthcare sector represents a prime target for cyber criminals because of patient data. Such as social security number, insurance ID number, credit card number, address, and medical history. That information can be easily used to commit fraud, financial theft etc. Some studies suggest it takes over half a year to detect a data breach. Just alone, the reported data breach figures are astounding, that doesn’t include the organizations that may not have reported the incident, while other organizations may not even know a breach has occurred. This presentation will highlight following steps that can help your organization to create successful incident response plan and focus on what matters.

• Plan only for incidents of concern to your business.
• Creating a breach risk profile
• Define your team members and their roles
• Test and Practice your incident response plan
• Communication Plans and Procedures

2:00 PM– 2:30 PM: BYOD Healthcare Strategies: Healthcare providers can now access data anytime and anywhere, but with the chaos of unregulated devices and vulnerable apps constantly accessing networks across the health industries, crates a palette of security breaches, viruses, worms and intrusive malware waiting to consume the vulnerable data. Join us for this presentation on establishing acceptable procedures and support models that offer a balance for hospitals and their BYOD strategy.
• Defining Devices
• HIPPA Text Messaging
• Containerization
• Monitoring

2:30 – 3:00 PM: Cloud Principles for the Health Care Industry The Healthcare Industry today faces the ever-changing and challenging and heavily regulated landscape of security and patient privacy issues. Across the Healthcare industry, organizations are increasingly embracing the cloud and trusting its security, confidentiality and reliability. This presentation looks at virtualization and cloud computing to provide the flexibility, productivity and cost-efficiency that help Healthcare providers meet agility and compliance goals.

3:00 PM – 4:00 PM Closing Round Table Discussions: Medical Internet of Things (m.IoT) Security is critical for IoT, but how big of problem is it? Devices are gathering and transmitting data across a host of platforms,in some cases,not necessary requiring user authentication. Join in on the discussion surrounding IoT Security, data privacy, telemedicine, the demand for connected devices.

4:00 PM: End of Program. Join us for the reception after the summit. Gourmet treats and beverages will be served throughout the remainder of the afternoon.
