Protecting Healthcare from COVID-19 Scammers

August 13, 11:00am, MDT - 12:00pm, MDT




What you'll learn

As remote working continues during the COVID-19 pandemic, it’s clear healthcare security leaders can’t afford to let their guard down. Threat actors are using social engineering and email to lure end-user targets to respond to a wide range of scams such as receiving test results, tracing COVID-19 positive contacts, signing up for relief payments, and buying personal protective equipment or ventilators. Additionally, as the pandemic death toll rises, cybercriminals are attacking new targets such as hospice care that have less security technology, training, and security awareness than other organizations.

In this session, we’ll discuss the impact of COVID-19 on healthcare organizations and share:

  • How cybercriminals are exploiting the COVID-19 pandemic
  • The new/unique security challenges over the course of the pandemic
  • Any best practices/recommendations to Healthcare CISOs
