BOSTON, MA – December 5-7, 2016
What: Jon Cohen, VP, Strategy and Corporate Development of Synchronoss Enterprise, will speak at HIMSS Privacy & Security Forum, a conference focused on healthcare’s unique IT challenges, from prevention and detection to response and recovery, with the session, “Healthcare Organizations Under Attack: Protecting PHI and PII.”
Why: A 2015 study published in the Journal of Hospital Librarianship estimated that 85 percent of healthcare professionals bring their own devices to work. Often this introduces unwanted security issues and productivity handicaps. Protected Health Information (PHI) and Personally Identifiable Information (PII) are extremely valuable to cybercriminals as they are willing to pay more for health records than any other personal records. Because health records fetch large dollar amounts, hackers increasingly target healthcare organizations and their ecosystem. This session will highlight major emerging risks to PHI, PII and offer timely insights on mitigating those risks by applying best practices for securing data on mobile devices and patient information from medical devices or other IoT devices.
Who Should Attend: HIMSS will be attended by information security professionals, tech industry leaders, business executives and security vendors interested in learning how to protect their healthcare data.
When: Tuesday, December 6 at 9:45am ET.
Where: Westin Boston Waterfront (425 Summer St, Boston, MA 02210). Cohen’s keynote takes place in the Grand Ballroom.
