We invite you to attend our free Healthcare Incident Response Workshop on Tuesday, April 24th in Portland, Maine. During this interactive, three-hour educational workshop, security expert Clyde Hewitt will provide an update of the current threat landscape that could easily cause a security or breach event. Using case study examples, he will demonstrate how responding to an event doesn’t fall solely in security’s wheelhouse, but requires a collaboration between IT, security, compliance and privacy. After the event, attendees will be more prepared for responding to an event, as well as actionable best practices for preparing a proactive incident response plan.

Topics covered include:

The current threat landscape and latest trends in healthcare

Real-world examples and case study

Best practices for creating an incident response playbook

Interactive roundtable response exercise

What Past Attendees are Saying

I appreciate an organization that is willing to share information for free. Those that have little to give keep what little they have close. However when you are willing to share for free, there is more to be had and they are truly at the top of their field.
