Webinar: ‘Supply Chain Cybersecurity: Reduce Your Risk’

September 7, 2022

Join Washington Hospital Services from 8:30-10 a.m. Wednesday, October 5 for the webinar and panel discussion “Supply Chain Cybersecurity: Reduce Your Risk.” Presenters will include Washington Hospital Services Industry Partners Sensato Healthcare Cybersecurity and ScaledData Technology Solutions, as well as leaders from WSHA hospital members MultiCare and Olympic Medical Center. The group will explore the challenges, considerations, and potential conflicts of interest hospitals face as cybersecurity creates a larger footprint in hospital workforce and technology investments. The panel discussion will be facilitated by WSHA Vice President of Data Analytics and IT Services Jonathan Bennett. Register here.

Suppliers need to be secure to keep hospitals secure. Malicious actors could tamper with products at a shipping center before they ever reach health care customers. Digital attackers could prey upon openings within a supplier’s network. A mobile health care app or a product’s outdated firmware make their way through the supply chain where malicious actors can get access to a health care entity and steal its stored protected health information.

Hospital supply chains are becoming more complex and reliant on technology, creating unique cyber risks and increased regulatory requirements. Attacks on software supply chains can be difficult to detect yet devastating if one has occurred. However, organizations can take steps to limit the risk from their suppliers. The first step is to identify the risks. Participants of the webinar and panel discussion will:

  • Learn about risks hospitals of all sizes face from their supply chains
  • Learn how hospitals can ensure suppliers are meeting baseline security controls
  • Understand why and how potential supply chain security problems may be missed

Please pass this invitation along to anyone in your hospital network who may be interested in attending. When you register you will be asked to provide answers to two questions:

  1. What are the key challenges your hospital is facing regarding supply chain cybersecurity?
  2. What are the two things you hope to learn from this program?

If you have any questions about the webinar, cybersecurity or technology solutions, contact Ed Phippen, edp@wsha.org or (206) 216-2556. (Cynthia Hay)
