Events featuring First Health Security and Technology Experts:

Third-Party Risk Resilience – An Enterprise Imperative that may be Mandated

Date/Time: Sunday, February 25th

Speaker: Carter Groome, CEO, First Health Advisory

Topic: Third-party risk is not just a security concern: It’s an enterprise issue from operations to clinical workflow and every digital initiative in between. Most health entities have limited visibility into the security posture of their vendors, prior to a risk assessment or since the last one was performed. Discussion will focus on expansion of AI and other digital health innovations through the lens of third-party exposure and the risk it poses to the enterprise while exploring the most effective platforms, processes, and governance leading organizations are adopting.

Digital Health Innovation & Risk: Flatlined Without Data & Cyber Governance

Date/Time: Monday, February 26th at 2:15pm

Speakers:  Victoria Pillitteri, Manager of Security Engineering and Risk Management, NIST, George T. “Buddy” Hickman, Chief Digital & Information Officer, Roswell Park Comprehensive Cancer Center, and Mac McMillan, First Health Strategic Advisory Board Member,

Topic: Effective governance and the interlock between cyber and data are imperatives in the drive for digital innovation, the promise of AI, and security accountability industry leaders are now facing. Promises minimizing care delivery burdens, improving outcomes, and accelerating efficiency must align at the intersection of cyber, data, and governance structures addressing strategy, resources, and risk. Join Victoria Pillitteri, George T. “Buddy” Hickman, and Mac McMillan, in discussing why strong, effective governance is requisite in the transition to a rewired enterprise.

Date/Time: Monday, February 26th at 5-6pm

How the Complex Digital Health Ecosystem Leaves Device Security in Flux

Date/Time: Tuesday, February 27th at 2:45PM

Speaker: Matt Dimino, Chief Security Officer, Clinical & Operational Security & Technology, First Health Advisory

Topic: The Internet of Things (IoT), the Internet of Medical Things (IoMT), and Operational Technology (OT), collectively and often referred to as Healthcare IoT, have become critical elements of healthcare delivery. But while these technologies have innovated patient care, the sheer volume of devices, software, applications, and care systems also carry unintended consequences in terms of security and privacy risks.

The current state of device security is untenable and made worse by longstanding myths and vendor promises to “solve” a problem that, in reality, does not have a full solution. This session will cover the specific challenges to securing digital tech within the healthcare sector and what’s needed from network defenders to prioritize risk and bolster cyber hygiene. Through use cases, clinical engineer experience, and current work with clients, Matt will target misconceptions in an effort to shift perspectives into tangible solutions.
