As part of our nation’s critical infrastructure, healthcare facilities large and small must be proactive and move quickly to protect themselves from cyberattacks that could directly impact the health and safety of patients and the community at large. According to medical health experts experienced in cybersecurity preparedness, cyberattacks are identified as the top threat in many healthcare systems’ annual Hazard Vulnerable Analyses (HVA). Healthcare systems, government agencies, and other partners have worked diligently to defend against the growing number of cyberattacks on the healthcare industry. Presenters on this webinar will discuss their experiences and tangible lessons learned in responding to cybersecurity incidents. This webinar builds upon the recently released Healthcare System Cybersecurity: Readiness and Response Considerations document and accompanying overview presentation of how to use the resource. The webinar will take place on Thursday, March 18, 2021 from 1:30-2:45 PM ET.

I previously blogged on this webinar and the February 2021 resources in case you want to check that out. The document referenced is 34 pages in length and the overview presentation is the recorded webinar I reference in the February 19, 2021 blog. Lots of great information in both resources.
