Luncheon Topic:InfoSec for the Health Industry Abstract: Information systems are becoming more needed than ever before. We continue to depend on them in medicine, critical infrastructure, corporate accounting, military operations, and a host of other areas. Therefore, there is a need for a mature process with which to verify the security worthiness of these systems because we are relaying on them to keep us safe, uphold our privacy, and run our economy. So, how could we design an Information Security (InfoSec) program that would help us get there? Come join us at this ISSA session to discuss this topic in general with some focus on the Healthcare sector. InfoSec @ HealthcareWhat is Information Security?
