Is anyone hacking your life?
February 15, 2013 in Medical Technology
The healthcare industry is one of the most breached industries in the U.S. So how secure is your organization? After all, a breach in healthcare data may mean putting lives at risk. “Hacking Your Life,” a View From the Top session taking place Tuesday, March 5, from 9:45 to 10:45 a.m. in New Orleans Theater A of the Convention Center, may help to put your security plan into high gear.
Security expert David Kennedy, president and CEO of TrustedSec, LLC, a company with the motto, “information made simple,” will discuss the different types of attacks hackers are leveraging, as well as how to build your security program to detect and prevent an attacker in the event of a breach.
In this advanced-level session, Kennedy will discuss the risks and exposures to healthcare equipment; how the healthcare industry is faring in protecting against hackers; and how to solve the security problems faced in the healthcare industry. In a nutshell: Kennedy will cover “the true nature of what is really out there, and what hackers are capable of,” the session promises.
According to TrustedSec, Kennedy was a chief security officer (CSO) for an international Fortune 1000 company located in more than 77 countries and with more than 18,000 employees. While there, he developed a global security program. He is considered a thought leader in the security field and has presented at many conferences worldwide, in addition to having had guest appearances on FoxNews, BBC, and other high-profile media outlets.
Kennedy is the founder of DerbyCon, a large-scale security conference in Louisville, Kentucky. He also authored Metasploit: The Penetration Testers Guide book, which was number one on Amazon.com in security for over 6 months, and he was one of the founding members of the “Penetration Testing Execution Standard (PTES)”, a leading industry standard and guidelines on penetration tests and methodologies.
Kennedy says security is more than a career or job. For him, “its a passion in life.”
