How Identity Deception

Is Affecting Canadian Healthcare

Zoom Webinar | Thursday, July 9, 2020 | 1:00PM-2:00PM ET

Cyber attacks and security breaches have steadily increased across Canada and the world—and health organizations are seen as a leading target. iSecurity Consulting said the healthcare sector is targeted more than any other industry in the country and that 48% of all security breaches in Canada last year were in the healthcare industry and cyberattacks in the sector rose 15 per cent between 2018 and 2019. The Canadian Centre for Cybersecurity recently issued an alert highlighting risks to the medical and health communities during the COVID-19 crisis.

Join Proofpoint and special guest speaker, Chris Lynam, Director General of the new National Cybercrime Coordination Unit within the Technical Operations branch of the RCMP, to hear his perspectives on cybercrime and how it is impacting the healthcare sector. He’ll also review the challenges it poses to law enforcement, how the NC3 unit is enabling and assisting other law enforcement to better address it, and how it is important for law enforcement to partner with the private and non-government sectors to advance their work.

Denis Ryan, Senior Director, Email Fraud at Proofpoint, will discuss the impact of identity deception and business email compromise on your healthcare organization and how your clinical staff, patients, and associates are being targeted. He’ll also share some best practices on protecting your people.
