Opening Discussion Topic:

What Healthcare Leaders Can Do to Create a Cyber-Secure Organization

A clear and present danger.  Literally, lives are at stake when healthcare systems are hacked. When LA’s CHA Hollywood Presbyterian Med Center was hit with the Locky ransomware virus, it reduced their operations to paper and pencil for several days. Plus there’s always the concern about incurring financial penalties for HIPAA and PCI violations.

As we kick-off the Round Table, our Group Discussion will focus on how cybercrime has impacted your organization directly, or indirectly – including experiences you’ve had with cyber-attacks, etc. This will also be a great time to raise issues/questions you’d like to hear addressed by our Featured Speaker, M. K. Palmore, who heads the San Francisco region’s FBI’s Cyber Security Branch. With responsibility for 41 Northern California counties, including those housing the nation’s leading tech firms, M.K. has been closely involved in some of the largest data breach investigations in history. During his presentation, he’ll overview the current cyber threat landscape and what you can do to protect your organization from it.

M. K. Palmore, in addition to heading the FBI’s San Francisco Cyber Security Branch, is Assistant Special Agent-in-Charge for the Northern California region. With the FBI for nearly 22 years, he began his career as a Special Agent in LA and Sacramento, where he first began to focus on countering cyber terrorism. Later, in Washington, DC, he became an Enterprise Risk Management – Team Leader; then he returned to Sacramento as a Program Director and Supervisory Special Agent responsible for the team investigating public corruption and government fraud. All this was built on his five-year career as a Captain in the U.S. Marine Corps, following his graduation from the U.S. Naval Academy.
