“With ransomware now a direct threat to patient care, the imperative to think and act differently about cybersecurity has never been more pressing,” said Erik Decker, Chief Information Security Officer at Intermountain Health. “From third parties to enterprise threats, we need to move away from the static, passive risk processes of the past and move toward more active, real-time management of cyber risk if we’re to win the day against bad actors.”

“Ransomware attacks on the nation’s hospitals are threat-to-life crimes that have the potential to disrupt and delay urgent patient care, and can no longer be treated as just an IT problem,” said John Riggi, National Advisor for Cybersecurity and Risk, American Hospital Association. “It is essential that government and health care organizations like Intermountain Health work together to share cyber intelligence, strategies, and tactics to better prepare and combat these cyber threats.”

“It is a special opportunity to work with the AHA, John and Erik on advancing the conversation on cyber risk management,” said Ed Gaudet, CEO and Founder of Censinet. “We are looking forward to sharing Censinet real-world customer examples and hope these case studies will provide AHA members with practical knowledge and insights as they work to elevate their cyber risk management programs to part of their organization’s enterprise business strategy, making them more resilient and responsive to cyberthreats.”

In this webinar, attendees will learn:

  • How leading organizations like Intermountain manage third-party risk every day
  • Best practices and processes to reduce third-party and enterprise risk
  • Current and future strategies for managing cyber risk in real-time

“I’m excited to join Erik Decker and John Riggi in this critical discussion at such a pivotal moment in our industry,” said Chris Logan, SVP and Chief Security Officer at Censinet. “As the crosshairs have shifted from patient data to patient safety over the past few years due to increasing ransomware attacks, health systems must urgently realign and modernize their cybersecurity programs to stay ahead and protect patient care from these advanced threats.”
