The majority of security threats you face today; viruses, worms, spyware and other malware utilize some unchecked vulnerability in your software to compromise your system. Patches fix the "holes" in the code. A recent study found 98.8% of breaches can be stopped by good patching practices. Patching is your first and most important step in securing your system and keeping it healthy. However, many of the patching practices are inefficient, incomplete and ultimately risky themselves. This leads to unpatched, and therefore, unsecured systems. It only takes one vulnerable machine to breach an entire network! 

Come learn:

· How is patching best done today?

· Why to not use Auto-Update?

· Why tools like WSUS are not only costly, but complicated?

· What 18 steps should you follow for a best practices approach?

· What tools or services are available to help you patch?

· What are the “gotchas” in patching to watch out for?

If you are a healthcare provider and one of your computers containing ePHI is lost or stolen, HIPAA Breach Notification Rule 45 CFR 164.400-414 requires that you notify all potentially affected individuals, state governments, the media, and the Department of Health and Human Services. 

Such notification results in your being listed on the HHS “Wall of Shame”, fines, and damage to your reputation, leading to lost future earnings and a lowered business valuation.

Fortunately, HHS provides a “Safe Harbor” exception to the Breach Notification rule if you can demonstrate that the ePHI was properly encrypted according to their standards.  Come learn how a hard-drive encryption service can.

Come learn:

· Eliminate the Breach Notification

· Safeguard ePHI

· Demonstrate compliance 

· Save money

· Reduce risk
