Attending the NJDVHIMSS Fall Conference on October 19th 21st? Join us for an important session on improving cybersecurity management using Business Impact Analysis


As healthcare organizations become savvier at detecting breaches, their next priority must be to respond and contain cyber security threats, such as ransomware and zero-day attacks, more effectively. Effective management is critical to mitigating and minimizing the impact of an attack – financial, legal, compliance, productivity, reputation – even protecting your patient’s wellbeing.

In today’s environment, the only certainty is that it’s not a matter of if, but a matter of when a cyber security attack will penetrate an organization’s defenses. Wanting to build a solid foundation for their business continuity and incident response program, Princeton Healthcare System utilized Business Impact Analysis to identify critical business functions and the impact of system disruption. This served as an important starting point for defining priorities and fostering organizational alignment in order to optimize business continuity and recovery capabilities that have become a crucial “skill-set” for today’s healthcare organizations.

During this presentation, audience members will learn more about:

  • Why conducting a BIA is a core element in defining any successful BC/DR/Incident Response Plan
  • Overview of BIA tools that organizations can use within their organizations
  • Typical obstacles and barriers faced during a BIA
  • Learn about Work Recovery Time and other business/system recovery metrics
  • Learn approaches provider organizations can use to build their own impact analysis

Speakers include:

Director, Technology and IT Security Officer

Mark Ferrari
