AEHIS Fall Summit | October 30-31, 2017 | San Antonio, TX | JW Marriott San Antonio Hill Country Resort & Spa

  • AEHIS Fall Summit

    Spark discussion, shape your association – join us for the first annual AEHIS Fall Summit!

    Health IT security leaders are challenged daily with an onslaught of cyber attacks such as malware, ransomware, phishing campaigns, threats to medical devices, and even DDoS attacks. Increasingly complex governmental security regulations further complicate the healthcare CISO’s overall objective of safeguarding the network and protecting patient information. As the threats grow and oversight becomes more necessary, your security practices must align with overall organizational strategies, leveraging the technology and services that will help expand security boundaries.

    Despite these daunting demands and complex solutions, you have a valuable resource at your fingertips. That resource is, of course, your colleagues! To learn from others in the industry, AEHIS is pleased to announce our inaugural Fall Summit, open exclusively to AEHIS members.

    The 2017 AEHIS Fall Summit will feature IT security speakers and presentations, and create a collaborative environment to enable you and your team keep your organizations secure and become better leaders in the transformation of healthcare IT. We invite you to take part in this exciting event.
