There was little known about cybersecurity practices across the health care sector. The Cybersecurity Community of Practice ran a survey to get a pulse on levels of awareness and response in cybersecurity. This webinar is presented by members of the Cybersecurity CoP Steering Committee who will report some of the initial findings followed by a panel discussion to engage their perspective on the most pressing security issues in 2018 and how each of us can play our part.
