Tuesday, September 20th, 2022 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM CT

From managing billing software to MRI machines, hospitals and healthcare facilities have become increasingly reliant on third-party vendors. While convenient, this reliance comes with a lot of added risk: 55 percent of healthcare organizations have experienced a cyberattack linked to third parties in the last 12 months, an 11 percent increase from last year.

Nearly half of healthcare organizations now believe third-party remote access is becoming their business’ most vulnerable attack surface.

Join Kylie Ruiz, senior product marketing manager for SecureLink, as she discusses what healthcare organizations are doing (or not doing) to manage third-party vendor access.

Key learning points:
