ARLINGTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Aug 22, 2018--Today, leading data advisory consulting firm Infolock kicked off its third annual Healthcare IT Security Leaders’ Summit at its corporate headquarters outside Washington, DC. The two-day, invite-only conference brings together IT and information security executives and industry experts and covers topics including blockchain applications for the healthcare industry, HIPAA enforcement, the future of AI in clinical settings, GDPR regulatory compliance and data privacy, managing privilege attacks, user-entity behavioral analytics, and other topics.

When asked about the event, Ryan Dobbins, director of advisory services for Infolock said, “It’s a remarkable and unique experience for us to host the Summit, and we routinely hear from our attendees that it’s the best conference or meeting they attend all year long. That’s incredibly gratifying for us. We’re laser focused on avoiding vendor marketing in the subject matter presented — something we feel ruins other similar events — and it clearly shows in the quality and vigor of the dialogue we spark between and among participants. We think the industry needs more probing, challenging conversations and fewer long-form commercials.”

Speakers from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services’ Office of Civil Rights, Community Health Systems, The Center for Internet Security, the Virginia Modeling, Analysis, and Simulation Center at Old Dominion University, Polsinelli, BeyondTrust, Bay Dynamics, and Infolock will present over the course of two days. Attendees include executives from Penn Medicine, Sentara Healthcare, Temple University Health System, Orthofix, Gateway Health, Augusta Health, Valley Health, and others.

In response to a question about previous years’ events and their most valuable insights, attendee Michael Bray, senior director of information security and compliance at Community Health Systems in Franklin, TN said, “Having the opportunity to hear directly from HHS OCR regarding breach reporting and enforcement, and getting the legal community's perspective on effective breach response, was invaluable.”
