Today, information security impacts every aspect of a healthcare organization -- operational performance, brand perception, market value, compliance and even the bottom line. Yet, many organizations lack an effective and simple Information Security Management Program (ISMP) roadmap.

CIOs and CISOs must be prepared to present a thoughtful, refined and simple plan to their executive and peer leadership teams that demonstrates a well-organized, prioritized and systematic approach to address the organization’s cybersecurity risks.

This webinar will highlight the steps to build an ISMP roadmap to suit your organization's culture and budget, focusing on the top cybersecurity priorities using the "CARVER" process, as well as leveraging your organizational and IT strengths.

BluePrint Healthcare IT’s cybersecurity experts will be joined by Joe Carr, NJHA’s own CIO. Together, they will outline steps that you can take to build a customized ISMP roadmap in less than one day.
