Presentation focuses on preventing hackers from stealing protected health information
Carpinteria and Mission Viejo, CA – September 8, 2015 — Redspin, an CynergisTek Company (QTCQB: AUXO), has announced that its President, Dan Berger, a leading authority on healthcare IT security breaches, will present at ISMG’s Healthcare Information Security Summit on September 17, 2015 at the S.F. Airport Westin Hotel. Mr. Berger’s presentation is entitled “Can Hackers Be Stopped?”
In 2015, over 100 million patient records have been beached by malicious hackers, with most of those breaches occurring at major healthcare insurers and leading providers. “There is nothing short of a crisis in healthcare,” says Mr. Berger. “Healthcare organizations are under attack.”
The summit is organized by the Information Security Media Group, publishers of www.healthinformationsecurity.com and is a one-day event focused exclusively on the top fraud trends impacting organizations and the mitigation strategies to overcome those challenges. The event is expected to draw a nationwide audience of over 150 senior executives from healthcare providers, payers and business associates, all of whom are required by HIPAA to maintain the privacy and security of patient data.
In addition to his role as President of Redspin, Mr. Berger is the editor of the annual Breach Report: Protected Health Information, now in its fifth year of publication. The Breach Report identifies significant trends and draws attention to the specific areas in IT security most in need of improvement. It also includes recommendations for preventive measures and corrective actions to address any critical gaps and weaknesses.
