ControlScan Health IT Security Expert to Present at #HIMSS17 Conference

Cybersecurity Command Center to house session on closing HIT security gaps

ATLANTA, GA--(Marketwired - January 12, 2017) - #HITsecurity -- ControlScan, the managed security service provider (MSSP) IT leaders and their organizations rely upon for unified security and compliance, will exhibit and present within the Cybersecurity Command Center at the HIMSS17 Conference in Orlando, where the brightest minds in health and IT meet.

ControlScan works directly with healthcare organizations to proactively assess risk within their IT environments and implement measures to detect against both internal and external cybersecurity threats. In addition, the company's deep expertise in standards like PCI DSS and HIPAA/HITECH helps ensure that security technologies and processes are implemented for continuous compliance.

Risk Hotfix: Closing the Top HIT Security Gaps
Kurt Osburn, Manager of Healthcare Consulting Services for ControlScan, has spent years in the field performing HIPAA- and HITRUST-driven security risk assessments. On February 20th at 4:30 p.m. EST in the Cybersecurity Command Center Pavilion, Osburn will present an educational session detailing the most common Health IT (HIT) security gaps and how to proactively close them.

"Health IT security gaps come in all shapes and sizes, yet some are more common -- and more exploitable -- than others," said Osburn, whose credentials include CISA, CRISC, HITRUST, ISO/IEC and PCI QSA. "It's important that HIT professionals as well as C-level executives actively identify and address gaps in critical security controls and processes."

ControlScan Exhibit in Cybersecurity Command Center
The HIMSS17 Cybersecurity Command Center (Booth 376, Hall A) will offer healthcare CIOs, CTOs and senior IT executives a dedicated location to learn about the latest technologies and services for a strong HIT security posture.
