“Hospitals with a cybersecurity plan in place prior to an attack have a better chance at minimizing damage.”Mary Massey, CHA Vice President of Emergency Management
The Internet represents one of the biggest tools hospitals utilize to function successfully. It is also one of the largest vulnerabilities. Safeguarding devices, networks, and data from cyberattacks is the responsibility of every hospital and health care system.
While protecting patients’ private health information (PHI) is easily recognized as an area of responsibility, employee files, medical devices, and surgery schedules are also examples of areas hospitals must proactively defend.
CHA is hosting a webinar about how to prepare for and respond to a cybersecurity breach. This is a precursor to the 2023 Disaster Planning Conference which features Cybersecurity as a breakout session track.
