HRM Week Webinar: Managing Cyber Risks - Making a World of Difference in the Digital Healthcare Age

Cyber breaches and hacking incidents are becoming more prevalent in every sector and health care is no different. As the healthcare sector continues to change rapidly and become more connected, cyber threats are an increasingly important part of risk management for healthcare organizations. These attacks threaten to compromise network data, including patient records, and disrupt systems and networks. Cyber risks impact the entire enterprise, and health care risk managers play a role in preparing for and mitigating these risks within their organization.

In this webinar, two experts will present their insights, including scope of cyber coverage, how cyber coverage interrelates with your current insurance program, and strategies and techniques to mitigate the risk and create value for your organization. By proactively addressing cyber threats, risk managers can help make a difference in the digital healthcare age.
