Preventing Vulnerabilities in Healthcare From Affecting Patient Care

Posted on

Sponsored by: Rapid7

Healthcare organizations have become an attractive target for cyberattackers as patient data has grown in value on the black market. Despite this growing attraction among cybercriminals, the health systems, hospitals, and physician practices have lagged behind in dedicating the necessary time and resources to address numerous vulnerabilities in their networks and systems that these bad actors can exploit.

Vulnerability management provides a means for identifying and remediating unknown weaknesses in digital and physical environments. New technology allows IT departments to have greater control over and visibility into how users interact with patient data in real time. This technology, however, should not replace important education and training aimed at eliminating vulnerabilities caused by both malicious and haphazard human behavior.

In this presentation, Christiana Care Health System’s Cybersecurity Resiliency Program Manager Gabriel Doncel, CISSP, details strategies for managing vulnerabilities in a healthcare environment that address administrative, physical, and technical factors that pose threats to health data security and privacy.

​​Learning objectives

  • Establishing a method for collecting, monitoring, and analyzing networks for risks
  • ​Educating and training staff on the impact of physical and IT vulnerabilities
  • Using threat exposure analytics to inform vulnerability management efforts
  • ​Prioritizing remediation of identified vulnerabilities
