When:  Dec 6, 2023 from 01:00 PM to 02:00 PM (ET)

This educational webinar will show you how to mitigate the negative impact should you suffer a cyberattack.  Your business doesn’t have to come to a grinding halt.  The strategies that will be discussed will help you reduce the potential impediments to clinical and business continuance while still providing you the ability to admit patients and continue to sustain a high level of care. 

The urgency of the subject is undeniable. Cyberattacks against hospitals are on the rise, and the consequences are staggering, with an average breach cost of $10 million in 2023*. Even an average-sized hospital with 130 beds could lose $4.3 million in just one week, and the American Hospital Association warns of potential 3-4 weeks of downtime*.

This showcase will delve into the intricacies of incorporating cyberattacks into the downtime scenario, offering innovative solutions to the distinct nature of prolonged system unavailability and duration challenges. You will gain insights into the following key learning points:

  1. Understanding the Hacker: We'll provide a hacker profile, helping you grasp the adversary's perspective.
  2. Preparedness and Improvement: Assess what your organization is doing to protect itself from cyber threats. Explore challenging questions that hospital leaders must ask themselves and their teams. Evaluate your level of preparedness and gain actionable suggestions for enhancing your protection.
  3. Risk Mitigation Strategies: Learn essential strategies for risk mitigation and measures to safeguard patient well-being.
  4. Procedural Steps: Discover procedural steps to minimize the impact of downtime.
  5. Technology's Role: Understand the pivotal role of technology in aligning with human and process-centric efforts for a comprehensive preparedness approach.

This session will be a vital resource for MEDITECH hospitals seeking to proactively address the looming threat of cybersecurity incidents and downtime preparations, offering practical knowledge and strategies to protect revenue and lives.
