Identity Defined Security Alliance Member Webinar Series: Semperis and Community Health Systems Discuss NIST, Identity, and Ransomware in Healthcare IT Fireside Chat

DENVER, November 6, 2020 

WHAT: The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) provides frameworks and practical guidance to help organizations put identity at the center of their IT security strategy. In this live webinar, Scott Breece, IDSA Customer Advisory Board Member, and CISO at Community Health Systems, joins Gil Kirkpatrick, Chief Architect at Semperis, for a candid discussion and audience Q&A about best practices in healthcare IT.

Topics covered will include: The NIST Cybersecurity Framework, managing multiple identity systems in healthcare IT environments, and ransomware.

WHEN: Thursday, November 19, 2020, Noon ET/ 9 a.m. PT.

WHY: No one can ignore the sharp uptick of hospitals victimized by ransomware. And in healthcare, the stakes are higher. Just last month, a 78-year-old patient at University Hospital Düsseldorf died after a ransomware attack crippled the hospital’s IT systems and forced doctors to attempt to transfer her to another facility. It’s clear just how physically dangerous cyberattacks can be, but there are no signs of attackers slowing down. Healthcare organizations, both large and small, are in the crosshairs because human collateral pays. All it takes is a user clicking on the wrong link to kick off a deadly campaign. So, what action can defenders take to avoid becoming a victim of ransomware?

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: According to a joint advisory by the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency, the Department of Health and Human Services and the FBI there is evidence of increased ransomware attacks to U.S. hospitals and health care providers. Security leaders in the healthcare industry concerned about protecting healthcare data and the ransomware attacks that are on the rise will want to attend this complimentary webinar.
