You don’t have to work in the information security industry to know the challenge virtually all organizations face.

Stats like those above are everywhere. Reports of high-profile security breaches splash across the headlines with regularity.
And if you work in healthcare, like me, the challenge can seem especially daunting.
Often tasked with providing instant access to information, we are also responsible for the security of massive collections of sensitive personal data.
But before you throw up your hands, let me offer some good news: It is possible to help protect your organization and keep it out of the headlines.
And that, in fact, is the subject of a recent webinar hosted by vRad.
Special guest speaker: John Gomez
Watch me and John Gomez, CEO of Sensato Cybersecurity Solutions, as we look at strategies for protecting your organization against the threat of cyber attacks.
We were fortunate to have John, one of the industry’s most respected experts on cybersecurity, join us to share his insights on:
— The healthcare cybersecurity landscape, including current threats and what’s at stake
— Assessing your organization’s cybersecurity risks
— Building and maintaining a sound information security program
— Often overlooked regulatory requirements
— Best practices for working with managed-service providers
Our goal for the webinar was to offer information that will be helpful to everyone concerned about data security—from IT to the executive management team.
