The subject of information risk management (IRM) is on the radar screens of many organizations. Industries, especially those comprising the national critical infrastructure must move to a more strategic, business-oriented and architectural cybersecurity approach and posture.
The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Cybersecurity Framework (CSF) is one of three critical building blocks in the NIST IRM approach. The NIST CSF is voluntary guidance, consisting of standards, guidelines, and practices to promote the protection of critical infrastructure, while creating a common language for cybersecurity. While the NIST CSF provides guidance on “what” your organization’s IRM outcomes should be, NIST SP800-39 “Managing Information Security Risk” process provides detailed steps in “how” to undertake IRM. That is, the NIST CSF describes the “what” and NIST SP800-39 tells you “how”.
It is estimated by Gartner that by 2020, more than 50% of organizations will use the NIST CSF, up from the current 30% in 2015.” According to the joint HIMSS/Symantec study, “Operationalizing Cybersecurity in Healthcare Organizations”, the NIST CSF is already the most widely used security framework in healthcare.
Join this webinar and leverage a key “free of charge” ingredient for a successful information / cyber risk management program.
How secure is your organization? Are you actively utilizing a cyber security framework?

The recently published AHA / Clearwater white paper “Connecting the Dots Between Information Security and Patient Safety” highlights the bleed over from privacy/cyber risks into patient safety risks.
Healthcare and Public Health (HPH) is one of the sixteen US national critical infrastructure sectors and, as such, must move to a more strategic, business-oriented and architectural cybersecurity approach and posture. All organizations in the private and public sector must do a better job protecting our national digital assets and safeguarding the sensitive personal information with which they have been entrusted. In healthcare, a compromise of confidentiality, integrity or availability could become a life or death matter.
Controls checklists do not result in effective information risk management – only a framework and a process combined with a continuous process improvement mindset will do so. The National Institute of Standards and Technology’s (NIST) Information Risk Management (IRM) approach (NIST Cybersecurity Framework + Information Risk Management Process + Maturity Model) gives organizations the three critical building blocks to establish, implement and mature their IRM program, along with an abundance of critical guidance on managing information risks.
Attend this webinar which will provide attendees with practical, actionable steps to implement the NIST CSF.
This webinar is designed for anyone responsible for protecting sensitive personal information. Business leaders, managers and professionals with responsibility for privacy, security, compliance or risk management should attend. CEOs, COOs, CFOs, Chief Compliance Officers, Chief Risk Officers, Chief Privacy Officers, Chief Security Officers, and Chief Information Officers should also attend given the increased scrutiny under which shareholders and other stakeholders are placing these executives.
