FLORHAM PARK, N.J. – October 3, 2017 DataMotion ™, a leading provider of secure data exchange solutions, today announced the company will present an interactive webinar entitled “Take Action: Improving Cybersecurity in the Health Care Industry,” on Wednesday October 4, 2017, 1pm Eastern. This free webinar will be presented by renowned industry expert, Chris Apgar, CISSP, CEO & President of Apgar & Associates, a health care consulting firm providing expertise in privacy, information security, HIPAA, regulatory and health information exchange.


The informative webinar will  review highlights from the recently published Health Care Industry Cybersecurity (HCIC) Task Force report, including findings and recommendations for the industry and some practical implications for implementing these recommendations. The HCIC Task Force was formed by the 2015 Cybersecurity Act passed by Congress and charged with addressing challenges the health care industry faces in securing and protecting against cybersecurity threats. In June of 2017 the Task Force released a comprehensive 96-page report called “Improving Cybersecurity in the Health Care Industry”.


During the webinar, Apgar will cover pertinent and actionable report content including:


  • State of Cybersecurity in the Health Care Industry
  • Risks across the Health Care Industry
  • Imperatives, recommendations and action needed


“Cybersecurity issues continue to grow across all industries, but have hit the health care industry particularly hard. Understanding the scope of these issues and how to resolve them is critical to making health care organizations secure, especially for those working with sensitive and regulated data,” said Apgar. “Now more than ever, it is vital that that healthcare organizations have the knowledge and tools necessary to identify security risks associated with using, storing and transmitting sensitive patient health information.  This is pertinent to not just healthcare providers, health plans and healthcare clearinghouses.  It’s also an important topic for vendors who provide a wide variety of products and services as part of the healthcare industry”
