Research shows that hospitals have approximately 14 minutes to respond quickly to thwart a cyber attackers’ efforts. After that, your actions transition to a focus on recovery. Washington Hospital Services is hosting a two-part cybersecurity tactical simulation with Sensato from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. on Nov. 3 and Nov. 11. Please click here to register (one registration will cover both days). This two-part event will allow you to test your cybersecurity incident response. The WSHA Incident Response Team participated in this event last fall and found it very effective to help us learn how our team reacted under pressure, the effectiveness of our response plan, areas for improvement and tactics we had not previously considered.
You will learn the most from this if your entire incident response team participates on both days. This may include CISO, CIO , CEO (if you don’t have a CIO or CISO), compliance manager, and incident response managers. Help desk team members do not need to attend unless you want them there.
John Gomez will lead this event. He is the founder and CEO of Sensato, a leading provider of cybersecurity solutions for healthcare. John has a strong background in NIST and critical infrastructure, and he has been involved in cybersecurity and high technology for more than three decades. John has lectured and trained on cybersecurity and advanced technology topics worldwide. Before founding Sensato, John held executive roles at Allscripts, WebMD and Microsoft.
