HIMSS17 and Cybersecurity: Insights Across the Three Pillars of Annual Conference

Virtual Event

Jan 16, 2017 1:00pm - 1:30pm CST

A growing concern among healthcare providers is that cybersecurity threats are occurring at an alarming rate and threaten our national security, our infrastructure, and our lives, both personally and professionally.  As health IT becomes increasingly integrated with physical infrastructure operations, there is increased risk for wide scale or high-consequence events that could cause harm or disrupt services upon which our economy and the daily lives of millions of patients depend.  As a HIMSS17 attendee, we provide you with insights into a variety of tools and resources that will equip you to build you agenda for understanding both the challenges and opportunities of cybersecurity at HIMSS17.


Learning Objectives:

1) Describe the risk and exposures that cyber threats impose on 21st century care delivery;

2) Identify ways to engage at HIMSS17 surrounding cybersecurity;

3) Explore cybersecurity offerings across HIMSS17 education, exhibition, and networking venues
