Harnessing the Power of NIST — Your Practical Guide to Effective Cybersecurity

  • Event Date:
  • Event Time: Noon Central

Each month as a new data breach dominates the headlines, we are reminded that the only thing consistent in the world of health care cybersecurity and cyber risk management is change.

Now more than ever, it is critical that health care organizations protect and safeguard sensitive personal information by moving to continuous improvement and a more strategic, business-oriented and architectural cybersecurity approach. Organizations can gain a proven security infrastructure, along with an abundance of critical guidance on managing information risks, through the National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) IRM approach (NIST Cybersecurity Framework + Information Risk Management Process + Maturity Model).

The Office for Civil Rights (OCR) and the Office of the National Coordinator, in concert with NIST, recently published the HIPAA Security Rule Crosswalk to NIST Cybersecurity Framework, further aligning the health care and public health sector with the NIST approach. Learn how combining the power of the NIST approach with a continuous process improvement mindset allows health care organizations to establish, implement and mature their cybersecurity programs to protect their information from today’s growing number of unrelenting threats.
