Futurism Empowers Rural Health Care Community at the AHA Rural Health Care Leadership Conference

Futurism is excited to return to the 35th Annual AHA Rural Health Care Leadership Conference, country’s leading awareness and educational conference for health care leaders.

We are coming to AHA’s Rural Health Care Leadership Conference Roundtable to empower health care leaders in the rural community with all-things cybersecurity

Mr. Sheetal Pansare, President & Global CEO for Futurism Technologies.

Security is always an uphill battle when it comes to rural hospitals and smaller community clinics, since these hospitals lack adequate security staffing, training and skills compared to their larger counterparts. Unfortunately, most rural and smaller hospitals tend to run on a tight budget with thin profit margins combined with lack of awareness pertaining to cybersecurity at the board level.

Our cybersecurity hot topic roundtable at the AHA Rural Conference will explore issues that CEOs and Board members of rural hospitals face on a daily basis and what can be done to bridge the knowledge and communication gap and in getting the right answers.

Cybersecurity Hot Topic Roundtable is a thought leadership discussion on cutting business risks and driving cyber resilience for rural and smaller community hospitals. The conference would bring together a league of subject matter experts, thinkers, thought leaders, health care leaders and health care practitioners to share their insights while empowering rural hospital board members and CEOs to speak up confidently about their cybersecurity risk posture. The roundtable is aimed at helping hospitals ramp up the shift to a more integrated, sustainable and secure care system.

Join us at the Hot Topic Roundtable, as we shed light on core issues that CEOs and board members of rural hospitals face  today and what measures can be taken to bridge the communication and knowledge gap in getting cybersecurity right for rural hospitals.

As a board member or the CEO a rural hospital – how do you identify your hospital’s true risk status when it comes to cybersecurity for rural hospitals?

  • Lack of skilled and certified security resources
  • A small and overburdened IT team
  • Communication gap between CEOs and IT team
  • Lack of security knowhow at the Board Level
  • Bad or immature technology decisions
  • Unpatched health care systems (EHRs/EMRs)
  • End-of-life or outdated OS/devices
  • Lack of network and firewall protection
  • Lost/stolen devices
  • Unrestricted/unsecured access to critical health systems
  • Unsecured connected health (IoT) and mobile devices
  • Lack of disaster recovery and backup plan

Our Cybersecurity Hot Topic Roundtable at AHA Rural Conference aims to address these and many other concerns allowing the board members and CEOs of rural hospitals to talk about cybersecurity confidently and understand their risk status.
