The Attack Surface of the Healthcare Industry | Jeremiah Grossman
Panel overview: Asset inventory, i.e., an organization’s attack surface area, is the next big thing in information security. Identifying all the Internet-connected assets an organization owns and which need to be defended can be an incredibly difficult challenge.
- Multi-factor authentication will save your company from data breaches and security risks along with email security.
- Organizations that use Microsoft 365 are more than 3x as likely to experience a business email compromise when compared to Google Workspace.
- WordPress plugins can cause vulnerabilities if they are not regularly updated.
Jeremiah Grossman is the CEO of BitDiscovery, which gives companies a complete and current inventory of all of its Internet-accessible technology. He previously served as the information security officer at Yahoo! and chief of security strategy for endpoint security vendor SentinelOne.

Alleviating the Fear in Preparing for Information Security Compliance | Ray Biondo & Cathlynn Nigh
Panel overview: Many companies are behind the curve when it comes to preparing for information security compliance. Many don’t realize this until it’s too late. Working with a compliance partner such as BEYOND LLC can help organizations prepare for an official compliance audit.
- A readiness assessment is key to compliance.
- Most organizations underestimate how much a good-quality compliance assessment will cost.
- Openness with your compliance accessor helps alleviate pressure and helps uncover where compliance lapses are.

Securing IoT/OT Against Modern Threats | Bruce Snell
Panel overview: This panel reviewed modern threats to Internet of things security. Bruce presented information about common vulnerabilities and examples of the current risks with such devices as smartwatches and modern cars.
- Smart devices collect data that create a profile that could be used for fraud, exploitation, or robbery.
- Data collected from smart devices can be extracted and used against an individual.
- The “bring your own device” model creates a lot of security issues.
- It is both the user’s and the manufacturer’s responsibility to avoid security breaches in IoT.

Regulation and Innovation in Healthcare | Carrie Nixon & Mike Parisi
Panel overview: Innovation within the healthcare industry is a must. Without it, patients continue to be treated with outdated, routine technology. Regulatory laws can have a positive impact on healthcare innovation. An environment can be created that encourages businesses to develop and utilize new technology or business models that effectively serve patients’ needs.
- Congress is the biggest barrier to reimbursement regulation and innovation in telehealth.
- Regulatory laws written over the last few years are so broad that they allow for many interpretations.
- Over the next ~14 months, many states could develop their regulatory guidelines and laws (along the lines of the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA)).
- These days, government regulators are working with, rather than working against, technology companies to pass reasonable regulations that allow for innovation in healthcare.
Carrie Nixon, Esq. is the co-founder and managing partner of Nixon Gwilt Law and the CEO of Nixon HealthNexus. Mike Parisi is the vice president of assurance strategy and community development at HITRUST.

Shiny Object Syndrome: Insuring Your Security Puzzle is Complete | Kurt Hagerman
Panel overview: Shiny object syndrome is the rapid and unchecked growth of disparate security tools that clutter security programs and limit their effectiveness. With over 5,000 security vendors and over 10,000 solutions on the market, it’s important to implement tools that work together to give you a complete security picture and not implement tools you don’t need.
- Building a security system is like completing a puzzle, but security requirements are constantly changing, unlike a puzzle.
- Threat actors only have to be right once; security programs have to be right 100% of the time.
- To convince their bosses to purchase security products, CISOs should speak in terms of dollars—i.e., how much money they could save or lose by implementing/not implementing a particular tool.
