Securing the Internet of Healthcare – Effective Strategies for Medical Device Security

Given the criticality of data sharing and analysis from this Internet of Healthcare, what can be done to address medical device security issues without creating obstacles to patient care? The presenter will discuss how to identify and target the devices with the most critical security vulnerabilities – those in use by consumers up through those within hospital settings. Learn how to address these issues through a layered risk management approach of IT security best practices and vendor analysis that creates checkpoints for patients, clinicians and IT staff.

Presenter: Ray Hillen, Director of Security Consulting & Senior Cybersecurity Consultant, Agio

Measuring Cybersecurity Readiness Using a Cybersecurity Maturity Model

Rather than a “checking the box” approach, there needs to be a measurement tool that recognizes different stages of an organization’s cybersecurity strategy. The Cybersecurity Maturity Model requires a broad-based approach that incorporates best practices from other high-risk industries such as finance, insurance, and the defense and intelligence communities.  Additionally, the model focuses on a broad, holistic approach that incorporates the threats and threat mitigation of all of the areas of risk, including people, processes, and infrastructure.

Presenter: Paul Anderson, Vice President, Advisory Services, Divurgent

Cyber Threats and Trends 2016

How do you ensure the security of your data is preserved in a way that stays one step ahead of the bad guys? Unfortunately, criminals – domestic and abroad – are relentless in searching for creative new ways to obtain money and/or intellectual property from companies and their clients. Today’s cybercriminals are innovative and organized. This is your opportunity to hear the FBI share current case studies and offer tangible suggestions for what you can do to mitigate your cyber security risks to keep your company and clients from being victimized. Topics include ransomware, dollar thresholds, and reporting incidents to IC3.

Presenter: A member from the FBI Raleigh Cyber Squad
