CISOs know that all the technology in the world won’t make for secure organizations unless they have fostered a culture to match it. But what does an organization with such a culture look like? How is the org chart and governance structured? How well is its info sec team funded? How are employees educated on cyber-hygiene, then tested on what they’ve learned; and what are the consequences when they don’t make the grade? In this important webinar, we’ll look at all aspects of what constitutes a sound security culture and discuss how you can move your organization from here to there.
Some CISOs have described the ransomware attack that took Kronos offline as a “gut punch” that’s forcing them to reevaluate the risk posed by the third-party vendors they rely on. That reevaluation includes doing a better job of vetting new vendors before they come on board and figuring out a way to review the dozens, or even hundreds, of vendors they already work with. It’s a mountain of a task, but one that must be done if health systems are to avoid getting knocked out in the future. In this timely webinar, we’ll hear from leaders who are making the revisiting of third-party risk a top priority.
Under the weight of the pandemic, health systems have been hit especially hard by the nationwide labor shortage. With less folks to do the work, it’s become more important than ever to automate some of the more repetitive tasks that make for a welcoming digital front door.

In this timely webinar, we’ll hear from leaders who are leveraging technology to maintain the patient experience despite having fewer hands on deck.
Ryan Witt is a true believer. As managing director of healthcare for Proofpoint, he believes deeply in the connection between providing patient care and cybersecurity. Of course, recent event have borne him out, as cyberattacks have forced health systems to return to paper for weeks, and even necessitated the diversion of patients elsewhere. Witt says he’s shocked on occasion to see some health systems not utilizing all the best practices out there. In this Partner Perspective Interview, he also notes how most cyberattacks are happening, and later identifies some new, extremely promising technologies, all as part of his effort to spread the gospel of cyber-preparedness.
