Session Speaker(s): Ryan Kalember, EVP, Cybersecurity Strategy, ProofPoint Martin Littmann, CTO and CISO, Kelsey-Seybold Clinic

The cyber threat landscape for healthcare has drastically changed over the past few months. Proofpoint researchers have noted a significant increase in targeted attacks with health-related topics, specifically COVID-19, as the lure of choice. To thwart these attacks, health institutions need to look at cybersecurity the same way their attackers look at them - through the lens of their people. That starts by understanding who is healthcare’s very attacked people, or VAPs, and how they’re being attacked. Join our speakers as they share rapid evolution of healthcare-themed phishing campaigns, research outlining which healthcare job functions are most attacked, controls to protect your people and your patients and more.

For every CHIME CIO member that attends their webinar, ProofPoint will make a $50 donation toward the CHIME Education Foundation.  This will help when the need for qualified professionals is increasingly critical.

We understand that you and your teams are on the front lines saving lives and may not be able to attend College Lives when they happen. No worries! We have archived these valuable sessions so you can consume them at a time that works for your schedule. View the archived education here.
Time to Evaluate and Learn from our COVID Responses

As states and cities throughout the United States begin to lift stay-at-home restrictions, it is important to remember that the COVID crisis is not yet behind us and that the potential for a resurgence still exists.

Until there is a vaccine or a cure, information is the most powerful weapon to fight a pandemic infection. Effective communication is therefore recognized as a critical element of successfully managing a pandemic response – for the disease spread to be contained, the public must comply with public health recommendations.
