Lancope will present a complimentary webinar on Wednesday, 30 October at 3:00 pm GMT entitled “Defending Healthcare Networks with NetFlow.” Lancope’s vice president of product management, Kerry Armistead, will discuss how flow-based monitoring can help healthcare organisations defend their networks and patient data from security and compliance breaches, as well as maintain 24/7 access to mission-critical technologies such as monitors and dialysis machines.
“Healthcare organisations are heavily dependent upon electronic patient records, storing vast amounts of protected health information (PHI),” said Kerry Armistead, vice president of product management for Lancope. “They cannot afford to have the availability or security of these records disrupted by a cyber-attack. In addition, they must also be sure to keep them protected and confidential to comply with the Data Protection Act and other regulations. Careful monitoring of NetFlow and other types of flow data can provide the network visibility needed to thwart advanced attacks and keep healthcare resources safe and secure from malware or other malicious activity.”
Webinar participants will learn how to:
* Obtain the network visibility needed to quickly detect sophisticated attacks that evade conventional defenses
* Ensure round-the-clock access to mission-critical technologies, including dialysis machines, heart monitors, etc., regardless of the range and number of devices connected to the network
* Defend healthcare networks and patient data from potential security and compliance breaches
Lancope’s StealthWatch System makes use of NetFlow and other types of flow data to help fend off a wide range of attacks such as DDoS, zero-day malware, insider threats and APTs. Enhanced levels of visibility – including virtual, mobile, identity and application awareness – further expedite troubleshooting and dramatically improve the security of healthcare networks.
