Healthcare is data. Every stitch of a patients health record, diagnoses, treatments, and provider interactions are fueled by information.

And with PHI, IP, and other sensitive information readily accessible on all types of devices, its no wonder that healthcare and life sciences organizations are now prime targets for cyber criminals.

Join Absolute and SANS Institute for an essential session outlining the key steps required to keep sensitive healthcare data safe and avoid disastrous data breaches.

You will learn:

  • How to pinpoint sensitive data—even if its hiding on lost or stolen devices
  • Which bad endpoint hygiene habits are making your devices vulnerable to attacks
  • The cost of not complying with shifting regulations and OCR requirements
