Identity Defined Security Alliance Webinar: Identity Matters – Applying an Identity-Centric Security Strategy in Healthcare

DENVER, April 20, 2021 

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 the live webinar, Jeremy Grant, Managing Director of Technology Strategy for Venable, LLC, Rebecca Archambault, Trust Identities Leader at Highmark Western and Northeastern New York and Scott Breece, VP of Security and CISO at Community Health Systems, will discuss recommendations for the role of identity in healthcare security strategies.

WHEN: Thursday, May 6th, Noon ET/ 9 a.m. PT.

WHY: During normal times healthcare is a complex and dynamic industry. The extensive ecosystem of users, devices, and systems is essential to delivering quality patient care, but it also provides ample opportunity for a digital identity to be compromised. In fact, in recent research by the Identity Defined Security Alliance, 78% of the healthcare organizations surveyed reported an identity-related breach in the last 2 years and the industry has suffered an unprecedented number of ransomware attacks in the last year. Through an identity-centric approach to security, Healthcare CISOs have an opportunity to improve security, better serve customers and develop competitive advantages.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND: Some of the largest healthcare breaches occurred in 2020 as hackers took advantage of the disruption caused by the pandemic and the shift to remote working, often resulting in a ransomware attack or exfiltration of patient data. You will be interested in this discussion if you are responsible for the processes and technologies used to manage the disparate identities in a healthcare organization and looking for ways to reduce the risk of a breach, while proactively providing business value.
