During This Must-Attend Seminar You’ll Discover:

  • The scary risks of mobile and cloud computing – and 12 critical policies, procedures and protections EVERY healthcare organization must have in place NOW to protect themselves; overlook even one and you’re exposing yourself to security breaches, damaging and expensive litigation, employment lawsuits and having confidential company information exposed to competitors, hackers and cybercriminals.

  • Find out if your employees' user names and passwords are FOR SALE ON THE DARK WEB right now!

Who Should Attend?

Healthcare Executives including physicians and office administrators who are responsible for: lost or stolen devices, privacy of confidential information, employment litigation introduced when employees use personal devices to access company data, as well as State and Federal laws that carry heavy fines for lost or stolen data.
