NWN to Present on Advanced Cybersecurity Defense at the North Carolina Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) Conference

WALTHAM, Mass.–()–A cybersecurity expert from NWN, the leading integrated cloud communications with infrastructure service provider, will lead the session “Ransomware Defense: Security Controls Across the Cyber Kill Chain” at the North Carolina Chapter of the Healthcare Information and Management Systems Society (HIMSS) fall conference.

In the past weeks, federal agencies have warned of massive cyberthreats against U.S. hospitals and urged healthcare providers to take precautions. NWN Solution Architect and cybersecurity expert Chris Voravudhi will share defense-in-depth best practices and practical tips for healthcare organizations fighting these threats at North Carolina HIMSS on Tuesday, Nov. 17 from 1:15 – 2:00 p.m. ET.
