Join David Finn, EVP of Strategic Innovation of CynergisTek, along with Michael Vida, Manager of Security Services, on May 21st from 12:00-1:00 pm CDT to hear an analysis of CynergisTek’s annual report. This webinar will address some of the top privacy and security issues discovered in 2018 assessments, along with an analysis of unauthorized access and risks posed by third-party vendors.

Topics that will be discussed include:

  • How compliance does not equal security
  • Why healthcare only received a “C” grade of conformance
  • Which categories of hospitals improved or decreased conformance with NIST CST
  • Why we saw a decline in Awareness and Training conformance, despite the fact that 2018 was plagued by ransomware and targeted phishing attacks
