Healthcare Security Fireside Chat: NIST, Identity, and Ransomware

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?

The Identity Defined Security Alliance (IDSA) provides the framework and practical guidance that helps organizations put identity at the center of their IT security strategy. In this fireside chat, Scott Breece, IDSA Advisory Board Member, and CISO at Community Health Systems, joins Gil Kirkpatrick, Chief Architect at Semperis, for a candid debate about yesteryear’s best practices and how to push towards a safer tomorrow. Topics of conversation include the NIST Cybersecurity Framework, managing multiple identity systems in healthcare IT environments, and of course, ransomware.
