In October 2013, the inaugural health care survey uncovered that IT security personnel believe their security programs are primarily driven by compliance and that compliance isn't working. Compared to other industries, health care was far behind the security curve at that time. With another year of experience and vulnerability, have health care IT security staff made the needed improvements in their programs?

This webcast is presented in two parts. Be sure to register and attend both parts of this webcast to be eligible for a $50 American Express gift card awarded LIVE during the Part 2 webcast on Thursday, December 11 at 1:00 PM Eastern, which will focus on cloud computing concerns and controls!

Part 1 of the webcast provides an overview of whether the SANS community believes that the industry has advanced in making needed improvements and, if so, how they have been made. Then we take a deeper dive into mHealth. Mobile has grown up. It's not just about access to sensitive data stored on a system in a data center. Consumer apps on smartphones, wearables, tablets as physician care extenders, and the Internet of Things are all driving the health care industry to address new concerns and seek new controls around identity management, data governance, and the old-fashioned tenants of security: confidentiality, availability, and integrity.

Join us as our speaker, Barbara Filkins, SANS Analyst and health care expert, compares and contrasts the impact of mobile health on the more traditional concerns around healthcare security.
