Cyber Security for Healthcare Summit
Philadelphia, PA
Jun 29, 2015 - Jul 01, 2015
Healthcare records represent an extremely attractive target for cyber criminals, containing as they do various bits of sensitive information like Social Security numbers all in one place. With risks continuing to escalate, some organizations are taking a proactive approach, working to better protect patients’ data and fortify their systems before an attack or theft occurs.

The IQPC Cyber Security for Healthcare Summit will help hospitals and medical device manufacturers to prepare and manage such risks by viewing cyber security not as a novel issue but rather by making it part of the hospital’s existing governance, risk management and business continuity framework.
