The St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society will sponsor a CME webinar, Cybersecurity Update 2022 – Cyber Liability Insurance for Health Care and Associated Risks, on Tuesday, August 16, at 6:00 p.m. over Zoom. The free program is open to all physicians and medical professionals, including office managers and practice administrators. Participating physicians may claim 1.0 Category 1 CME credit hours.
The program will be presented by Health Care Technology Advisors, a division of Inerva Technology Advisors, and techrug (The Technology Risk Underwriting Group). The presenters, Derrick Weisbrod, CEO of Inerva Technology Advisors, and Josh Barker, senior account executive and advisor at techrug, will provide an update on the current state of cybersecurity issues and how you can protect you and your practice.
Cyberattacks on all types of businesses are on the increase, especially health care, where it is most pertinent that protected health information is secure. Cyber liability insurance is crucial to that protection. Medical practices must be assured that any cyber liability insurance follows the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) when determining the risk associated with underwriting a policy for a given business. The NIST standards are best practice as the basis for regulatory compliance that is known as HIPAA in health care.
At the conclusion of this activity, participants will be better able to:
• Articulate cybersecurity risks and the methods used to compromise patient privacy and cybersecurity of the medical practice.
• Explain cyber liability insurance protections and its importance.
• Understand the correlation between government regulations and NIST standards.
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Missouri State Medical Association through the joint providership of Institute for International Medicine (INMED) and St. Louis Metropolitan Medical Society. The Institute for International Medicine is accredited by the Missouri State Medical Association to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
