Speaker: John Riggi - National Advisor for Cybersecurity and Risk

It’s a sad fact that hospitals and health care systems continue to be prime targets for cybercriminals. But it’s the skyrocketing growth of cyberattacks on third parties such as business associates, medical device providers, and supply chain vendors that currently poses one of the biggest – and often-neglected – challenges on the health care cyber risk landscape. Based upon real-world events, learn what happens when high-impact ransomware attacks target these third parties and supply chain vendors and the embedded risk it has to hospitals and health systems. Dialogue hosted by SHSMD and AHRMM, discussing how digital risk translates into patient care risk and prioritizing the impact across all operational, clinical, and business functions. We will also discuss the latest cyber legislative and policy developments.
