Healthcare Privacy and Security Expert John Houston and FairWarning CEO Kurt Long Lead Discussion on The Future of Healthcare

CLEARWATER, Fla., May 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- FairWarning, the worldwide leader in patient privacy intelligence,

announced today John Houston, Vice President, Privacy & Information Security and Assistant Counsel at University of Pittsburgh Medical Center and FairWarning CEO and Founder Kurt Long will conduct an informative webinar that will explore issues surrounding healthcare data security. The presentation titled "Behavior Analytics in Your Healthcare Privacy and Security Program" will provide insights on internal and external threats affecting healthcare firms, and how these organizations can encourage their staff to develop a security-focused culture.

The educational webinar offers care providers best practices for security management to ensure protection of patient and organizational data. The discussion will serve as an educational primer for attendees on behavior analytics and identity intelligence, which are proven to be essential tools in preventing breaches. Firms will be shown a roadmap of the future to proactively spot and stop such occurrences through cutting edge tools and techniques, providing complete monitoring of internal and external users.

During this FairWarning Executive Series Webinar, participants will learn:

  • How to construct multi-layer security defenses specific to healthcare
  • How behavioral analytics complement a multi-layer security defense strategy
  • How to make meaningful progress on managing internal and external users
  • How to improve the ability to detect and even predict breaches
  • How to measurably improve the information security behaviors of the workforce

"The goal of this webinar is to bring high-level thought leadership to security, so organizations have the tools in place to fix data protection issues before they turn into security problems," said Long. "We are offering this webinar to provide healthcare organizations with insights into the security dangers that exist today, especially the risk of breaches occurring through compromised or authorized user credentials. We'll also discuss how firms can transform their staff members into security agents who understand their role in protecting healthcare data."

According to IBM X-Force 2016 Cybersecurity Intelligence Index, 60% of breaches are caused by insiders. While insiders pose a major threat and vulnerability, it's possible to transform employees into a provider's best line of defense. This webinar will dive into how to develop a privacy and compliance-based culture that minimizes risks and protects against the constantly changing tactics by healthcare's agile adversaries.
