HIMSS: Why the Healthcare Industry is a Unique Target for Cyber Criminals

HIMSS, the health IT conference, is coming up on March 5-9 in Las Vegas, and several of our team members will be in attendance. While we’d love to chat with you, two PhishLabbers will be presenting on why the healthcare industry is such a unique target to cyber criminals.

Chris Bowen, our Senior Security Engineer, will be discussing the topic during a fireside chat hosted by Ryan Clemency, one of our account executives.


During the fireside chat Chris and Ryan will be discussing the latest trends regarding healthcare cyber security, the threat actors who commonly go after the data, and some of the reasons why they may be doing so. Chris will also share some best practices around how to encourage your employees to report more suspicious emails, which in turn will reduce risk for your organization.
