The healthcare industry continues to be one of the most exploited industries. Risk factors such as third party access, high volume of staff-patient interaction and an investment imbalance when it comes to protecting a patient’s health vs. their personal information leaves healthcare organizations susceptible to attack. While new vulnerabilities present new vectors to exploit, attack techniques remain fundamentally the same: discover, analyze, attack and exploit. Assuming attackers will continue to find a way through, the key to reducing risk is understanding how they target and execute their attacks.
Join eSentire Penetration Tester, Chuck Ben-Tzur, as he shares his experience conducting penetration tests against healthcare organizations.
Chuck will cover the following topics:
- Why healthcare organizations are a prime target for cyber-attackers
- The tools and fine-tuned attack vectors used by attackers
- Common weaknesses and potential impacts
- A real-life account of an attack on a healthcare organization
- Recommendations for strengthening your security posture
