Identity Matters – Applying an Identity-Centric Security Strategy in Healthcare

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.

Please join Jeremy Grant, Managing Director of Technology Strategy for Venable, LLP, Rebecca Archambault, Trust Identities Leader at Highmark Western and Northeastern New York and Scott Breece, VP of Security and CISO at Community Health Systems, as we discuss recommendations for the role of identity in healthcare security strategies with members of the H-ISAC Identity Committee. In this webinar you will learn why healthcare CISOs should take a more proactive role in leading identity initiatives, recommendations for identity-centric security strategies as defined in the H-ISAC Framework for Managing and Identity and the Identity Defined Security Framework and how it is being applied across healthcare organizations to reduce risk and provide business value.
