Cybersecurity and Patient Privacy in Healthcare: The Balancing Act
Cybersecurity and Patient Privacy in Healthcare: The Balancing Act

How do you balance privacy with data exchange among clinicians, access for patients and medical breakthroughs for researchers? This session examines whether there's a "right balance" for protecting patients' confidentiality, bolstering cybersecurity and providing individuals with access to their own health data, while also optimizing the potential for new research discoveries and improved clinical care. Steve Chabinsky, Commissioner of the President's Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity and a former Deputy Assistant Director for cyber at the FBI, kicks off our panel discussion with some examples and key themes related to patient privacy. The healthcare industry is made up of thousands of small clinics and laboratories that hold highly sensitive information yet are potentially the weak links for breaches that can impact larger entities and millions of individuals. How can these organizations protect data from cyberattacks, when many more sophisticated organizations and even government agencies haven't mastered cybersecurity?
