Overview

There is no question that healthcare organizations are struggling to stop attacks. The healthcare industry has been regulated by cyber security standards and laws since 2001, yet today they seem to be the one vertical industry regressing, rather than making progress defending their information systems.

In February of 2016 the California Attorney General, Kamala Harris recommended that "the 20 controls in the Center for Internet Security's Critical Security Controls identify a minimum level of information security that all organizations that collect or maintain personal information should meet. The failure to implement all the Controls that apply to an organization's environment constitutes a lack of reasonable security."

In this presentation James Tarala, contributor to the CIS Critical Security Controls, will discuss standards of cyber security care for healthcare organizations and why the CIS Critical Security Controls are quickly becoming the standard of cyber security care for all US healthcare organizations. He will also share practical tips for implementing these controls in a healthcare setting and overcoming the barriers to implementation. Attendees should expect to leave the presentation with practical advice for using these controls to stop even the most advanced attacks in their organization.
