  • Tuesday | 4:00 pm | Palazo E
    Mac McMillan and Jay Adams, Director of Information Security at Tallahassee Memorial Healthcare, will be co-presenting “Compliance Does Not Equal Security”.
    Creating a culture of compliance can no longer be the mantra for healthcare. Breaches and disruptions of service affecting healthcare are a testament that compliance does not equal security. Today’s healthcare enterprise demands a structured and informed approach to ensuring the integrity of medical records and innovative ways to access patient information safely and securely to support business initiatives. Click here to learn more about this session or to add it to your calendar.
  • Thursday | 11:30 am | Rock of Ages Theater
    Mac McMillan and Chuck Kesler, CISO of Duke Medicine, will co-present “Best Practices for Protecting Against Cyber Attacks”. The number of threat factors affecting today’s enterprise environment is staggering. Many organizations are using outdated security approaches, technology and practices to meet regulatory requirements and missing the forest for the trees. In this session, industry experts will provide the latest information based on firsthand experience to help attendees better inform their organization and workforce members so ultimately they can keep patient data protected. Click here to learn more about this session or to add it to your calendar.
