CHAIRPERSON’S OPENING REMARKS

As the demand for shared health data and interconnected clinical systems rises to meet quality and pay-for-performance needs, the use of personal and commercial IOT is also accelerating. Meanwhile recent very public cybersecurity breaches have helped galvanize the healthcare and technology industries, government and law enforcement while bringing cybersecurity to the attention of patients and the general public. We must together identify threats, solutions, and realistic paths forward to ensure not just our privacy and security, but the viability of our Healthcare Industry.

This presentation will offer a summary and analysis of recent concerning and damaging cybersecurity breaches in healthcare, from the Hollywood Presbyterian Medical Center ransomware attack, to WannaCry, the Anthem Breach Settlement, the Equifax breach and the sale of Australian Medicare records on the web.
