Presentation: Phishing, ransomware, cyber threats: AOHC and our approach to cyber security and raising security awareness

This presentation will demonstrate AOHC’s response to the growing cyber security threats that healthcare organizations across North America are facing. Our focus will be primarily on the newest “cyberplague” known as ransomware. AOHC’s efforts to raise security awareness have been two-fold:

In terms of its own security profile, AOHC engaged an external security consulting firm to conduct a maturity and threat analysis in late 2016. Methodology used included a thorough review of AOHC’s security against SANS’s 20 Critical Security Controls, which looks at 140+ security controls in an effort to achieve control coverage relative to risk exposure.

When engaged to conduct a privacy and security awareness training in member organizations, AOHC will execute a test phishing attack on all staff at the engaged member organization in an effort to assess the security awareness level of potential trainees. Thus far, our exercise has proven very effective and valuable. Details will be provided in the presentation.

While the focus of this presentation will be on cyber security, it isn’t a technical focus but rather a practical one. This is all based on AOHC’s experience in the area and the research conducted for the purpose.

11:30 a.m. – 12:00 p.m.
