We Did Everything Right But We Still Got Hacked with an Extended Clinical Outage; What Do We Do? with Kirsten Nunez and Lisa Bisterfeldt
In recognition of the 19 annual National Cyber Security Awareness Month, The Outcomes Rocket Network has launched a 10-part podcast series to elevate Cyber Security Awareness in Healthcare on our main channel, the Outcomes Rocket Podcast. Partnering with leaders in healthcare cybersecurity in their capacity as members of the Health Sector Coordinating Council, the podcast aims to illuminate advances made in protecting critical healthcare infrastructure and patient safety, and areas that need further focus to put a stop to Cyber Crime.
Do you have a plan in case you are the victim of a cyber incident?
In this episode, Kirsten Nunez, senior operations manager for emergency management and continuity at Intermountain Healthcare, and Lisa Bisterfeldt, cybersecurity and IT resiliency program manager, talk about the Operational Continuity Cyber Incident checklist they created to support the Incident Response Business Continuity Task Force under the Public Health Sector Coordinating Council Cybersecurity Working Group. Patients’ safety is of the utmost importance and it is being increasingly cyber-threatened as so much in healthcare nowadays is done digitally. The OCCI checklist intents to provide guidance for response teams to undertake critical tasks that need to be completed during the first 12 to 24 hours of a cybersecurity event. Kirsten and Lisa discuss why they believe this tool is very important to have at hand, the reasoning behind its format, and how it is to be applied within the healthcare industry.
Tune in to this episode to listen to this informative conversation that will help you be prepared against cyber threats!
