Healthcare data is one of the most valuable resources attackers are targeting in 2017. Unfortunately, over-reliance on traditional endpoint security has left more than half of hospitals vulnerable to a breach, according to a recent study conducted by the Ponemon Institute. Blocking attacks that compromise patient health information (PHI) is more important now than ever before.

Attend this webinar to hear Justin Armstrong, Security Analyst at MEDITECH and Jack Danahy, CTO of Barkly to learn:

  • How healthcare cybersecurity attacks have changed in 2017
  • Trends around fileless malware and ransomware attacks
  • True cost of a successful attack
  • Strategies for improving your healthcare organization's endpoint security
