Today's modern healthcare industry is facing unique challenges and opportunities that were not fully on the radar pre-COVID. Facing workforce shortages, a rise in remote working and telehealth, and a rise in cyberthreats, today's Healthcare IT team is faced with challenges of how to leverage mobile technologies to enable greater productivity while guarding against the potential risks that a dispersed, digital "workplace" poses. This session outlines the various roles of healthcare workers who work remotely and explores challenges of regulatory compliance and cybersecurity posed by enabling this virtual workplace.

The presentation highlights:

  • Top threats to healthcare organizations
  • The costs and impacts of a data breach in the healthcare industry
  • Security Risk Assessment as a resource for healthcare organizations to ensure they comply with HIPAA requirements
