The COVID-19 pandemic has led to an uptick in malicious cyber activity. WSHA members realize the importance of coming together in a safe environment to share learnings about quality improvement work. Our members have made it clear to us that they want to leverage the same approach around IT security and continue the open sharing of important health care security related topics.
In response, WSHA and the WA Healthcare Security Working Group are collaborating to help protect Washington health care communities. We are hosting the Cybersecurity Workshop: Threats to WA State Healthcare Security on Friday, Sept. 25 from 10:00a.m.–12:00p.m.
We invite you to attend this cybersecurity workshop to better understand the state and federal resources at your disposal. You will have the opportunity to learn from local and national experts – including the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) – about their observations and lessons learned for maintaining security during this unprecedented time.
An Ask the Experts lunch hour from 12:00–1:00p.m will follow the workshop. You’ll have a chance to dialogue with peers and the expert partners to address any cybersecurity concerns or ideas specific to your organization.
Health care security, especially with ever-changing updates in technology and telehealth, is a priority for WSHA. I highly encourage you to attend the workshop and hope we can share resources and knowledge to strengthen the security of all of Washington.
