Breaches are on the news seemingly weekly, as organizations are struggling to secure their data. Phishing attacks are proliferating and going after our workforce. Ransomware has taken several victims and is also escalating. Healthcare organizations have become prime targets.
In this talk, I will share strategies to combat the rise of cybercrime, and how to make your networks more secure. I will discuss administrative, technical, and physical security controls.
- Have you built a sustainable and dynamic Information Security Plan? Have you shared this with upper management and gotten their buy-in and support?
- Have you initiated a balanced Security Awareness Program? Are you regularly running scans of both your network and your applications? Are you monitoring your network to detect unusual activity? What about when that dreaded intrusion into your network occurs? Do you know what to do?
- Are you testing and evaluating your security controls on a regular basis? How often do you test your Disaster Recovery Plan and your Incident Response Plan? Do you have the right people on your IR team?
We are entrusted with highly sensitive data. We must utilize best practices, but they cannot be "best" unless they employ both best privacy and security practices. Come learn if you are doing this and ensure that you indeed protect your confidential information.
Don't allow your organization to become the next victim of a breach.
