MODESTO, CA -- HEALTHCARE UPDATE NEWS SERVICE™ -- JULY 14, 2020: The distractions, strain on resources and associated challenges brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic only heighten the potential vulnerabilities health plans face in safeguarding their organizationsí cybersecurity. Health Plans are well advised to stay vigilant - monitoring current trends and proactively assessing and updating their risk management response preparations.

Health Plans continue to be subject to advanced persistent threats from organized hacking groups, and payers need to adopt and update in-depth strategies and comprehensive incident response plans to thwart or mitigate these attacks. These protective countermeasures should be part of the organizationís formalized information security program designed to anticipate, prevent, detect and respond to future similar attacks targeting any organization.

Attendees to this presentation will learn about current cybersecurity trends impacting health plans, best practices to consider for health plan risk management response preparedness, and the importance of increasing Board and C-Suite visibility and awareness of these issues and responsibilities.
