In addition, Marti Arvin, nationally-recognized health care compliance professional and Vice President of Audit Strategy for CynergisTek, will share real-world cybersecurity incidents, the impact they had on privacy, security and compliance programs across the organizations affected, and advice on improving your hospital or health system’s readiness posture.
This conference is designed for hospital emergency preparedness directors, chief information officers, health information technology staff, public relations professionals, and public information officers. Be sure to pass registration information along to those appropriate in your organization. The conference is planned for October 23 at the Holiday Inn at The American Center in Madison.
