Cyber attacks. Data breaches. Ransomware incidents. All these challenges jeopardize effective patient care while inflicting operational and economic damage to healthcare providers and their partners. The irony? All this keeps occurring despite significant investments in cybersecurity programs by health systems. And still, the healthcare industry lacks transparency into cybersecurity preparedness, regardless of critical rules and regulations meant to
protect it. And that’s a significant problem.

In December of 2020, KLAS and Censinet announced an important partnership to help healthcare IT vendors and services firms improve their overall risk and security profile and provide greater transparency to thousands of healthcare providers. In May 2021, after many high-profile cyber attacks, the White House issued an executive order on improving the nation’s cybersecurity. And recently, KLAS and Censinet released the first deliverables from the partnership, introduced the “Cybersecurity Transparent” designation, and established a major plan to Modernize Cybersecurity in Healthcare.

In this on-demand webinar, two leading thinkers in healthcare cybersecurity share their vision and 5 fundamental steps of what we need to do as an industry to make substantive and effective change.
