Securing patient data health information in the face of rapidly-changing threats is just one of the numerous issues confronting health care organizations today. Additional concerns include navigating an evolving regulatory environment and innovating without compromising security or patient privacy.
The annual HIMSS conference and exhibition is a global event bringing together thousands of health information and technology professionals, clinicians, executives and market suppliers. HIMSS 2019 will focus on a combination of reoccurring and new global health care topics with education sessions and special events featuring top thought leaders from across the industry.
The IBM Security experts will be available at various locations on the exhibition floor. Visit us at booth #400 and challenge area #102 to play a cybersecurity-themed version of the classic game Operation, and stop by kiosk #60 for demos of IBM Security offerings.
We also invite you the following conference sessions, as well as our Feb. 13 Lunch and Learn event, during which IBM Security Public Sector Industry Marketing Manager Bill Venteicher will lead a panel discussion on cybersecurity challenges in the healthcare industry. The Lunch and Learn session will be held in Room 202A of the Orange County Convention Center on Feb. 13, from 11:15 a.m. – 12:15 p.m.

Session Title: Managing Regulatory Compliance by Bridging Security and Privacy
Date/Time: Tues., Feb. 12 | 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Theater A6
Speaker: Charlie Niemi, Presales Engineer, IBM Global Markets
Abstract: In 2018, managing complex privacy reporting regulations and having the proper process in place to stay compliant became the top priority for most organizations. In 2019, as the regulatory burden continues to grow, these efforts should be increasing. The EU’s General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) is impacting many healthcare providers, and challenges still exist for complying with the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). In this session, Charlie Niemi will give an overview how these increasingly tough regulations will have impacts on organizations that are not compliant. Charlie will also dive into how IBM Resilient and its constituent modules can be used to act as a bridge between IT/Security and the legal/privacy team.
Session Title: Boost Your Security Immune System
Date/Time: Tues., Feb. 12 | 5:00 p.m. – 6:00 p.m.
Location: Theater B8
Speakers: Eduardo Lopez, Client Technical Professional – Trusteer, IBM Global Markets
Abstract: Attackers are continuing to sharpen their focus on healthcare. Learn why no industry has more costly data breaches and how to establish digital identity trust through an integrated, intelligent strategy. Just like our immune system, a security program must be dynamic, holistic and cyber resilient. Discover the innovations that can help protect data, applications, identities and infrastructure to achieve business growth and frictionless patient care.
Session Title: Rewriting the Healthcare Cybsecurity Rules with IBM Security
Date/Time: Wed., Feb. 13 | 3:00 p.m. – 4:00 p.m.
Location: Booth #6459
Speakers: Salwa Rafee, Worldwide Security Industry Leader, IBM Security; and Jim Boyles, Cybersecurity Architect, IBM Global Markets
Abstract: With the amount of new IoMTs and sensitive patient data growing every year, the broader attack surface and data at risk makes an intelligent security immune system a must have. Now you need of a new set of cybersecurity rules to uncover hidden risks, strengthen your security and improve patient care. IBM Security is leading the creation of these new rules, and the future is open and collaborative. In this session, learn about the software and services powered by Watson for Cybersecurity and the all new IBM Security Connect, a cloud-based platform that enables you to gather security data from across your existing tools and products, wherever it resides.
Session Title: A Treatment Plan for UEM in Healthcare
Date/Time: Thu., Feb. 14 | 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m.
Location: Booth #6459
Speakers: Dan Cheuvront
Abstract: IT & Security teams in the healthcare industry need to manage and secure devices, users, apps, content and data differently than the average organization. Do you have the right treatment plan in place? Traditional management solutions can slow down response times to critical security events, so new approaches are needed. With new devices types such as ruggedized scanners and wearables becoming commonplace, it is imperative that they’re properly managed. Join and explore what an AI approach to unified endpoint management (UEM) can do to help healthcare institutions comply with industry regulations, discover and respond to new vulnerabilities in real-time, and contain confidential patient data.
Session Title: IoMT — How to Manage the Emerging Threat from the Internet of Medical Things
Date/Time: Thu., Feb. 14 | 12:00 p.m. – 12:30 p.m.
Location: Theater TBC
Speakers: Salwa Rafee, Worldwide Security Industry Leader, IBM Security; and Mark Hearn, Strategic Business Development, Irdeto
Abstract: The Internet of Medical Things (IoMT) is enabling a highly connected, better informed, and more efficient approach to patient care and wellness. However, as connected medical devices multiply and the value of personal data goes up, IoMT devices give hackers multiple opportunities to move to a new generation of ransomware, gain greater access to personal health records and take control over these medical devices threatening patients’ lives. This session will describe how IoMT innovators can rely on a full end-to-end threat monitoring solution for patients, devices and network security.
Session Title: Focus Group With Chime — The New Rules of IBM Security
Date/Time: Thu., Feb. 14 | 12:00 p.m. – 1:30 p.m.
Abstract: What do the companies you trust do to ensure your loyalty? Did you know that 95% of the largest U.S. healthcare companies use IBM Security? We want to improve our messaging, brand awareness and client relationships to help improve patient care and secure sensitive patient data. We want to get your insight on what we need to do to make that happen. As the cybersecurity landscape gets more complicated, we want to make things simpler for our clients and for the world.
