Lunch & Learn Sneak Peek
Today’s blog is a quick sneak peek at our Cyber Threats in Healthcare Lunch & Learn!
This Wednesday, August 15th, we will be taking part in a rapid-fire Q&A discussion about the top threats facing Healthcare today. Our own Paul Sponcia will join a panel of five other Knoxville experts of Healthcare and Cyber Security.
Why is this important information? One of our panel experts stated “Healthcare has risks associated with the cyber security industry that most other businesses do not.” A large part of the reasoning behind this is because of the high security requirements through HIPPA and PCI. Healthcare is such a large target, that we felt it was necessary to devote time to bringing attention to the topic.
One member of the upcoming Q&A panel, Ackermann Marketing and PR, collected research on just how at risk the healthcare industry is. One stat from Solutionary, an NTT Group security company, stated “88% of all ransomware attacks in U.S. industries last year were carried out on the healthcare industry.” And another stat from IBM Security/ Ponemon stated that the “Average cost of a security breach in 2017 was $3.62 million.”
Do these alarming statistics leave you with more questions and wanting answers? Join us tomorrow as intend to answer any questions you may have regarding this topic. We will begin at 11:30 at the Knoxville Entrepreneur Center in Market Square. Lunch will be provided from Hard Knox Pizza. If you haven’t reserved your free ticket, please do so at the link below!
