Join us for a webinar on January 25 (12:00 – 1:00 p.m., EST) with Terry Carlson, ITIL, and Steve Kovacic, MBA, of the Good Samaritan Society. Carlson and Kovacic will ground their discussion in a real life example and talk about how continuous cyberattacks on an organization’s information technology infrastructure can be circumvented with the establishment of a digital roadmap. They will also touch on the rising insurance expectations for continuing care operators to continuously enhance their information technology safety controls against evolving cyberterrorism. This webinar is moderated by Don Juzwishin, PhD, FCCHL, the Editor-in-Chief of Healthcare Management Forum, who was previously the Director of Health Technology Assessment and Innovation at Alberta Health Services.
