Censinet Extends Healthcare Vendor Cybersecurity Program
Ongoing Healthcare Vendor CISO Hour Addresses Safeguards to Provider Deployments and Managing the Challenges of Nth-Party Risk
Boston, MA – January 24, 2022 – Censinet, the leading provider of healthcare IT risk solutions today announced the expansion of its successful “Healthcare Cybersecurity Vendor CISO Hour.” The program brings together third-party vendors, suppliers, and consultants to address the unique challenges of meeting the increasingly stringent requirements from provider organizations both pre-deployment and in the ongoing assessment process. These industry providers also have to manage their own third parties and cascading nth-party risk and their business challenges.
“Vendors are a critical part of important digital health initiatives and improving patient care,” said Chris Logan, Censinet SVP and Chief Security Officer and facilitator of the ongoing Healthcare Vendor CISO Hour. “Censinet has the largest active vendor and product network in the healthcare industry, and we know how to equip our vendor partners with the cybersecurity tools, processes, and expertise to accelerate their product adoption without amplifying risk exposure. The Healthcare Vendor CISO hour is the only community forum that tackles these critical issues in conjunction with the vendors.”
The Healthcare Vendor CISO Hour is open to vendor stakeholders responsible for protecting their organization and securing their products. Registration is open for the next Healthcare Vendor CISO Hour with Chris Logan on Wednesday, January 26, 2022, at 12:00 PM ET. Register at www.censinet.com/healthcare-vendor-ciso-hour.
This session’s topic will be “2022 Changes the Rules for Healthcare Vendors.” Last year represented the perfect storm for healthcare providers: the disruptive impact of COVID-19 to clinical and information technology teams; the escalation and horrific impact of more virulent cyberattacks, including ransomware; and the increase of third-party vendors to support digital health initiatives. According to the leading healthcare research firm, Ponemon Group, improper assessment, and integration of third parties resulted in operational disruption and impacted – with life-threatening consequences – patient care.
