Goodman, who is co-chairing the program, said he is “striving to strike a balance between education through interactive engagement with information security professionals, and practical takeaways attendees will be able to implement as soon as the program adjourns.”

“The Healthcare Data Breach & Privacy Symposium,” Goodman said,is structured to create dialogue and engagement with professionals who will share their experiences and discuss what works and what doesn’t in addressing today’s health data security and privacy challenges. They bring a variety of perspectives with backgrounds in health information technology security, big data, population health, medical device and mobile health app development, legal, risk management and insurance, privacy and regulatory compliance, IT investment and more.”

“Attendees will be treated to a special demonstration — a healthcare data security incident response tabletop exercise,” Goodman said, “in keeping with the ‘real world’ focus of the program.”
