Our latest NCHICA Healthcare IT Trends Buzz Podcast features Ryan Witt, Managing Director of the Healthcare Industry Practice at Proofpoint. Ryan discusses the the current state of cybersecurity, including: the alarming new trend in more targeted phishing attacks; a recent Ponemon study showing the average cost to recover from a breach is twice as much for the healthcare industry; and why people are the weakest link in an attack. Proofpoint is an email security vendor and provides their clients with an email gateway and employee training on safe email practices. At their upcoming session at the NCHICA annual conference, you will learn what job titles in healthcare are the most "attacked" by cyber criminals, and what you can do to mitigate the risk.
Our podcast host is Janet Kennedy of Get Social Health.
