Achieving Security, Privacy, and Compliance in Healthcare


Healthcare isn’t just about optimizing patient outcomes - you also have to be sure you’re handling patient data in all the right ways. There are myriad questions you must constantly be thinking about. Are you protecting people’s patient data against cyberthreats? Are you maintaining privacy so no one sees any data that they’re not authorized to see? What about regulatory compliance - are you following all the rules? It’s a lot to handle, but we’ll show you how to make sense of it all. Join Zones and Cisco Global ISG for this breakout to learn more.
