Healthcare cybersecurity firm Sensato, which hacks health organizations to find weaknesses and also has emergency breach response teams, along with consulting firm Divurgent will host a three-day conference in March that takes on new importance following the hacking attack on Anthem.

“Hacking Healthcare 2015 is a no-excuses, check the political correctness at the door, keep your hands in the vehicle at all times, high-energy, fast-paced cybersecurity program,” the sponsors pledge. The event is scheduled for March 24-26 in Long Branch, N.J.

Veteran security specialist John Gomez, CEO at Sensato and former CTO at Allscripts, Eclipsys and WebMD, is the primary instructor. Attendance is limited to those affiliated with a provider, payer or vendor organization.

The conference is designed as a hands-on workshop with each day building on the content of the previous day. Areas being covered include major cybersecurity threats, the mentality of hackers, offensive and defensive strategies, and developing cybersecurity, privacy and business associate strategies, among others.

“The program is highly immersive, meaning you will find yourself in the world of cybersecurity, not just on the sidelines,” according to promotional materials. “More importantly, the entire program is 100% focused on healthcare information technology.”

The conference area can accommodate 30 but can be expanded, so quick registration is advised. The cost is $750. More information and registration is available here.
