Security Education in Healthcare: What Truly Matters
It's no secret that the healthcare industry is increasingly under attack by cybercriminals. And risky end-user behaviors are only exacerbating the threat. Yet, user awareness training is always a challenge for organizations. How do you effectively train users to stop clicking on links or opening attachments? This session offers an overview of leading-edge trends and end-user cybersecurity knowledge in the healthcare space. We will explore healthcare-specific data - culled from tens of millions of simulated phishing attacks - and examine how medical staff and other end users in this industry are performing on cybersecurity assessments across a range of topics.
Attend this session to:
- Understand the need to position end-user cybersecurity skills as "need to have" not "nice to have," and hear advice for achieving buy-in
- Take away key techniques for implementing a minimally disruptive (but continuous) security awareness training program within the time-challenged healthcare space
- Learn how a regional hospital and medical center underwent this training and then experienced an 86 percent reduction in phishing click rates
