Resource Overview

General cybersecurity guidance would suggest that Health IT breach should not be considered a matter of "If", but rather a matter of "when". How an organization prepares and responds to an episode of breach is just as important as defending itself from breach. Unfortunately, Health Centers are seen as a domain with high potential for data breach and consequently it is critical for Health Center leadership to embrace breach mitigation across their entire organization vs being a matter to be addressed by their Health IT team.

Breach can occur through both internal and external network leaks, through malware such as Ransomware, and through physical means on site. The resources provided below are meant to provide general knowledge about breach mitigation and methods for mitigating against breach incidences.

'Don't Click This' is Not a Security Strategy

A HIMSS The Learning Center Webinar

“Don’t Click Here” is no longer a viable security tactic. 

Healthcare providers need to rethink their security posture by stopping threats before they reach clinical staff augmented by an ability to respond quickly when attacks inevitably occur.  

This presentation will focus on current research that explains the most prevalent cyber attacks plaguing the healthcare industry, outline security technology that can best keep clinical staff safe from cyber attacks and provide a framework that hospitals can utilize to augment their security posture.  

During this webinar, you’ll learn:

  • Primary threat vectors oriented on clinical staff - ransomware, phishing, spearphising, angler phishing
  • The growing prevalence of imposter email and how to mitigate against this threat
  • Security technology that keeps threat away from users and removes clinical staff from threat determination
