VP and Managing Consultant Chris Campbell to Present on Social Engineering and Security Breaches
Carpinteria and Mission Viejo, CA – February 10, 2016 – (HIMSS Booth #9908) — Redspin, an CynergisTek Company (OTCQB: AUXO) and leading authority on cyber security in healthcare, has announced that it will be showcasing its professional services and its Redspin Risk Manager application at HIMSS16 on March 1 – 3, 2016 at the Sands Expo Center in Las Vegas, Nevada.
Redspin’s exhibit is located in the Cyber Security Command Center, a section designated for product and service providers who help healthcare organizations including business associates (BA) with challenges and concerns pertaining to cyber security and breaches.
Redspin’s Vice President and Managing Consultant, Chris Campbell, an expert in cyber security best practices, HIPAA, social engineering, cloud computing and vendor risk, will present at the Cyber Security Command Center’s educational sessions on Wednesday March 2, 2016 at 10:45 AM PST.
Mr. Campbell’s presentation is entitled “Case Studies: Social Engineering & Security Breaches.” Social engineering is the root cause of over half the reported healthcare security incidents in 2015. For example, hackers used social engineering tactics such as fraudulent emails (“phishing”) to gain the trust of employees then manipulated them into disclosing their login credentials.
The session will discuss the evolving threats and effective defense strategies through real-world case studies and how the human element of creativity in these type of attacks must be met with an equally creative and human response.
“With the rise of breaches related to social engineering, healthcare organizations need to be ready to defend against these powerful attacks,” says Mr. Campbell. Following the educational session, Redspin will have copies of its newly released Breach Report 2015 at its booth #9908 located in the Cyber Security Command Center.
