Healthcare Cybersecurity Experience with Gabrielle Hempel | - Health IT Expo and Conference

Healthcare Cybersecurity Experience with Gabrielle Hempel


As healthcare organizations look back at their response to the COVID-19 pandemic, there’s a lot that can be learned and applied to a healthcare organization’s cybersecurity incident response.  It turns out that there are a lot of similarities between a pandemic response and a cybersecurity incident response.  In fact, that’s partially why a computer virus is called a virus.


At our December Experience, Gabrielle Hempel, Cloud Security Engineer at Cigna, will be sharing how healthcare organizations can leverage lessons learned from the pandemic and apply them to their cybersecurity and incident response plans.  She’ll share practical insights you can use to improve your cybersecurity efforts.


Join Gabrielle and the health IT community as we engage in a deep discussion of healthcare cybersecurity and how you can develop a better strategy to fend off attacks to your organization and respond to cybersecurity incidents.


These FREE experiences aren’t meant to run in the background or be listened to later.  Instead, every aspect of this Healthcare Cybersecurity event provides opportunities for attendees to engage with speakers, other attendees, and leaders.  Take a look at the unique schedule for the event happening December 9, 2020 from 12:00 – 2:00 PM ET:
