On October 23, plan to attend the WHA Emergency Preparedness Conference: Cybersecurity in Health Care. This important, one-day conference will focus on the very real issue of cybersecurity in the health care industry and provide takeaways to improve your hospital or health system readiness. 

Throughout the day, experts will discuss current threats facing health care organization preparedness and security, and focus on lessons learned from real world events, including Daniel Nigrin, MD, MS, chief information officer for Boston Children’s Hospital, who will review the course of events that occurred when they endured a cyberattack.

In addition, nationally-recognized health care information security expert Tom Walsh will focus on developing and implementing a well-defined incident response process for your own health care organization.

This conference has been designed for hospital emergency preparedness directors, chief information officers, health information technology staff, public relations professionals and public information officers.
