Jul 12, 2017 1:00pm - 2:00pm CDT

In an ever-changing landscape of cybersecurity threats, it is important to be able to quickly limit the spread of malware across a network. This is of particular concern to healthcare organizations, which have thousands of medical devices on their networks that serve to monitor, diagnose, and treat patients.

Cisco TrustSec Software-Defined Segmentation provides one of the most effective means of blocking the lateral spread of malware and ransomware such as WannaCry. Join us to learn how TrustSec enables healthcare providers to restrict access to critical systems and data with segmentation policies that can be managed easily and cost-effectively, and adapted as the network evolves. Whether a Day Zero Attack or one such as WannaCry which exploits known vulnerabilities on un-patched systems, TrustSec Software Defined Segmentation is an invaluable Cisco technology that can reduce and often eliminate the spread of ransomware between systems.
