Opening Security Keynote with ExtraHop: It’s Not Killware That Will Get You - The Real Four Horsemen of the Cybersecurity Apocalypse

There’s no lack of sensationalist headlines within cybersecurity, not to mention within healthcare. The latest hair-raising headlines making the rounds of both trades are on the topic of “killware,” malware that’s intended to directly cause harm and take lives. At this point, the media attention seems to be driven more by hysteria than reality. However, the root cause of the concern has merit. Cybersecurity within healthcare is of genuine concern and poses significant risk to patients if current trends continue. In this presentation, VP of Security Response Services at ExtraHop and former healthcare CISO, Mark Bowling, will share four of the greatest forces compromising the cybersecurity of the healthcare sector, as well as strategies to combat them.

Reciprocity Presentation: Hackers Don’t Care if You’re Compliant! The Right Conversation to Mitigate Cyber Risk!

67% of healthcare organizations have experienced significant security incidents in the past twelve months.1 This rise in cyberattacks combined with NIST’s first updated guidance on healthcare cybersecurity in over a decade means you need to take action. Unfortunately, the conversation we’ve been having around cyber risk is the wrong one. The right conversation is centered on business priorities and the company’s appetite for risk so informed investment choices can be made to defensibly protect your company as it operates, grows and expands.

Join us to discuss how to shift from “how” you protect to “how well” you protect, implement best practices for risk assessment and mitigation and how to deliver better outcomes with less effort.

By attending this session you will learn:
Why “how” you protect must shift to “how well” you protect
How to tie align InfoSec activities to business priorities
New approaches for reducing cyber risk across life sciences and healthcare
Why automation is the way to deliver better outcomes with less effort

Tenable Presentation: Security Beyond Ransomware: Strategies for Healthcare and Pharma InfoSec Teams

Ransomware has dominated cybersecurity news reports for several years now, but it’s not the only threat organizations are facing today. More and more, organizations are adopting new technologies and services while still needing to maintain existing infrastructure, systems, devices and applications. With growing complexity comes an ever-increasing challenge to understand where we are most at risk and determine how best to mitigate it.
In this discussion, we’ll look at what the growing attack surface looks like for many healthcare and pharma organizations and provide strategies for adapting your security program to better understand where vulnerabilities exist across all the various types of assets in your environment and how to mitigate them before the next cyberthreat comes along.

Forescout Presentation: Exploring a Zero Trust Architecture in the Healthcare Industry – How to get started and pitfalls to avoid

Digital transformation in the Healthcare industry is causing an explosion of hyper-connected IT, IoT and IoMT devices and, with it, a greatly expanded cyber-attack surface. With constant transformation and the explosion of interconnected devices, how do you even begin to plan for a zero trust architecture beyond the managed users and workstations? 

In this session you will learn: 

  • How NIST defines Zero Trust and their 7 steps to get there.
  • Some of the common pitfalls to avoid.
    • Why Zero Trust doesn’t stop at managed users and workstations – IoMT devices must be included in the architecture planning up-front.

ManageEngine Presentation: How To Secure Healthcare Organizations In The Era Of Digital Transformation
The IT network of a healthcare organization is markedly different from that of other organizations. While the industry has quickly adopted new technologies such as telemedicine, wearables and big data, it is still plagued by security challenges due to legacy equipment and shortage of IT staff.
In this 20-minute talk, you will hear about these challenges and concrete steps healthcare organizations can take to understand their risk exposure, and thus improve network visibility and security maturity.
  • ‌Understanding the state of digital transformation in healthcare
  • Developing network diagrams to know your network
  • Gaining visibility through asset and resource discovery
  • Prioritizing risk after a total risk assessment
  • Identifying security gaps to address
  • Improving security with a next-gen SIEM solution

Fortinet Presentation: Cybersecurity Threats and Challenges for Today’s Pharmaceutical Companies

As pharmaceutical companies increasingly digitize data and store it online, they become more susceptible to pharmaceutical cyberattacks. While the industry

is comprised of a number of sub-industries with different business models and technology needs, they all must control extremely sensitive and valuable information and ensure an effective security framework. Drug and device manufacturers and biotech companies retain proprietary data ranging from secret formulas for patented drugs, to patient and customer information, to scientific research and advancements.

 The industry is being attacked by adversaries adept at exploiting vulnerabilities and carrying out disruptive cyber campaigns. Cyber threats are used by a variety of bad actors with a range of intended system consequences. These attackers are better resourced and more capable of accomplishing disruption than ever before. In addition to hackers seeking financial gain, pharma companies also have to worry about the full capabilities of nation-states or other pharmaceutical companies with state sponsorship.

 Consequences of a successful breach are dire and may include contaminated drugs, stolen intellectual property (IP), needing to repeat clinical trials, damaged reputation, downtime, litigation, and lost revenue.

 In this session, we will explore the top threats and challenges pharmaceutical companies must overcome when securing their networks, and what’s driving them.
