May 11, 2020: As health IT systems have had to expand and adapt to the current times, risks have increased in conjunction with these developments. Today’s guest, Patrick Potter, Digital Risk Strategist with RSA, joins us to share insights into securing healthcare enterprise. We kick off the episode by learning more about RSA and the services they offer their clients. From there, we take a look at some of the current cybersecurity threats healthcare organizations face. While phishing and ransomware still top the list, there has been an increase in malicious smartphone apps and new fraudulent websites. After this, we turn our attention to RSA’s four-step approach to mitigating risk. We dive deeper into planning for the attacks, detecting security threats, assessing the impacts, and, responding to the risks. Then, we take a look at how RSA helps its clients understand the varying domains of risks. Not all threats are equal, which is why it’s important to respond appropriately with a pre-planned policy. Finally, we round the show off by talking about remote work risks and how our thinking going into the future needs to be reshaped. Be sure to tune in today!
