How to Achieve Cybersecurity Readiness in the Healthcare Sector
Verizon estimates that 82 percent of enterprise breaches should have been stopped by existing security controls but weren’t, and the healthcare sector ranks among the highest in the rate of severe security flaws. Data breaches increased in 2020 across the board under the pandemic, and according to the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services breaches in the health sector increased by over 150 percent. Adversaries are ramping up attacks, and it’s never been more urgent to achieve effective cybersecurity in healthcare.
How can CISOs better prepare? Adopt a mindset that assumes breach—and then use known attacker tactics, techniques, and procedures to test your defenses. To achieve readiness, organizations should make decisions on the basis of real-time performance data and evidence of security outcomes. Join AttackIQ’s Senior Director of Cybersecurity Strategy and Policy, Jonathan Reiber, for a roundtable discussion on cybersecurity strategy, focusing on key questions:
- What attacks might happen to us?
- How well is our security program performing in relation to known threats?
- Are we getting the most out of our security investments?
- Is our security team sufficiently trained and prepared to counter incoming intruders?
The audience will leave the discussion with a deeper understanding of how organizations measure cybersecurity effectiveness, insights into the state of geopolitics and cyberspace operations, and clarity about how to achieve cybersecurity readiness in the healthcare sector.
