Lancope Presents Webinar on Safeguarding PHI and Defending Healthcare Networks with NetFlow

Oct 21, 2013, 09:00 ET from Lancope, Inc.

ATLANTA, Oct. 21, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Lancope, Inc., a leader in network visibility and security intelligence, will present a complimentary webinar on Wednesday, Oct. 30 at 11:00 a.m. U.S. Eastern time entitled, "Defending Healthcare Networks with NetFlow." Lancope's vice president of product management, Kerry Armistead, will discuss how flow-based monitoring can help healthcare organizations defend their networks and patient data from today's ever-evolving security and compliance breaches, as well as maintain 24/7 access to mission-critical technologies.

"Healthcare organizations are heavily dependent upon electronic patient records, storing vast amounts of protected health information (PHI)," said Kerry Armistead, vice president of product management for Lancope. "They cannot afford to have the availability or security of these records disrupted by a cyber-attack, especially in light of the Affordable Care Act. In addition, they must also be sure to keep them protected and confidential to comply with HIPAA, ARRA HITECH and other regulations. Careful monitoring of NetFlow and other types of flow data can provide the network visibility needed to thwart advanced attacks and keep healthcare resources safe and secure."

Join Lancope and learn how to significantly strengthen healthcare network defenses and compliance:
