There is also an opportunity to participate in a real-time data breach simulation to help assess a company’s readiness to effectively respond in the event of a breach.  For healthcare companies, it’s not a question of “if” but “when” they will have a data breach. Protecting the reputation of your organization during the time of a breach means preparing for its inevitability.  Safeguarding against a data breach isn’t enough. It’s critical to prepare your organization’s legal, compliance and communications teams to work in lockstep in the event of a devastating exposure.  Event Panelists:Celeste H.
