November 6, 2023 @ 8:00 am - 10:00 am EST


We are thrilled to return to an in-person event as we reconnect with colleagues and build new relationships.

We will discuss Cybersecurity, how to protect from ransomware, and the continuously changing threat landscape for safeguarding data and patient information; SEC disclosure requirements for “material” cybersecurity incidents; FDA policy and guidance updates for medical and connected devices for best practices to mitigate attacks.

The panel is led by Dan Blum, Director of Risk & Compliance at CrossCountry Consulting. He will be joined by cybersecurity specialist Ron Ford, former Cybersecurity Advisor for the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA); Jarman Joerres, cybersecurity specialist and co-founder of MedAcuity; Jeff Radin, CISO Information Technology, Akoya Biosciences, and Colin Zick, Partner, Co-Chair Privacy and Data Security Practice, Foley Hoag LLP.
