Cybersecurity Lessons from the Coronavirus

April 12, 2023 @ 3:00 pm - 4:00 pm EDT


The global pandemic has dramatically changed healthcare, the country and the world. Patient care and safety has been compromised and subject to risks we never thought possible. But we’re not talking about COVID-19, this is about another even more dangerous and resistant virus – cybercrime. Remarkably, these two diseases have a lot in common. Join OrbitalFire’s Reg Harnish as we explore the lessons we can learn from each and how we can better protect our hospitals, data and patients in the future.
