On February 14, SecurityMetrics Security Analyst Jen Stone will present an education session titled, "Remote Access Security: An Ethical Hack Demo," from 1 to 2 PM, in room W230A of the Orange County Convention Center. This presentation will focus on how to balance the need for convenient remote access in healthcare with cybersecurity, and how to navigate this balance with IT teams, executives, and managers.

Jen Stone said, "My hope is that attendees will understand the risks associated with remote access and come away with practical tools to help start and guide crucial conversations."

While at the show, SecurityMetrics will demo their latest HIPAA compliance management tool, the Health Network Portal, at booth #901. The Health Network Portal provides a time-saving solution to healthcare organizations that need to implement and track HIPAA and data security compliance across large networks of practices and associates.

"The Health Network Portal has helped large health networks unify their HIPAA compliance efforts. We hope to demonstrate to attendees just how powerful this tool can be for their extended network security," SecurityMetrics Product Manager Marcus Clawson explained.

HIMSS 2019 runs from February 10-15.
