Measure Your Level of Security Readiness and Become More Resilient


Sep 29, 2016 12:00pm - 1:00pm CDT

Healthcare providers are in the fight of their lives to protect themselves from cyber criminals and other threats. Unfortunately, whether it's by hacking, malware, or phishing, if someone wants badly enough to break into your system, they'll likely find a way.


Healthcare IT managers are faced with decisions to make about appropriate levels of resourcing to expend in protecting their organizations. In this educational webinar, you will gain insight into the standards that are recommended by security experts to provide adequate protection without wasteful spending.


The Software Engineering Institute's CERT Resilience Management Model (CERT-RMM) was developed to help healthcare and other organizations assess their current security readiness and then implement improvements to become more secure and resilient. In this session, a CERT cybersecurity engineer describes the CERT-RMM and highlights the key processes organizations must implement to manage risk to critical assets and maintain business continuity during a security crisis. Organizations can no longer expect to prevent every cyberattack, but they must be ready to continue operations and meet their mission when disruption occurs. That, is a hallmark of security maturity.
