NJVC Cyber Security Principal and healthcare cyber security expert Robert J. Michalsky will be on site for the 19th annual North Carolina Healthcare Information and Communications Alliance (NCHICA) Annual Conference, Sept. 8-11, 2013, in Asheville, N.C. NJVC is a proud member of NCHICA.

Key topics of the conference will include the advent of Health Information Exchanges (HIEs), patient privacy and EMRs, HIPAA compliance and ICD-10 transition. The full agenda can be found here.

Additionally, Michalsky will be providing expertise in the Security & Privacy Working Group.

NJVC's Healthcare IT focuses on secure IT across the entire provider enterprise. A loyal ally of the intelligence and defense communities since 2000, NJVC leverages the same cyber security expertise which protects some of our nation's most sensitive data to protect the critical cyber infrastructure of healthcare IT. NJVC's prescription-strength cyber security offerings carefully tailors cyber defense to the real-world needs of healthcare providers.

"At NJVC, we see the same challenges in the intelligence and defense community that we in healthcare," Michalsky says. "Both require high levels of performance in IT on a 24x7 basis with lives on the line. Both have large vulnerability surfaces and many reasons for bad actors to attack due to the high value of information."

Michalsky is CISSP and CSSLP certified.
