What is this talk about?

Epic makes healthcare software for mid-size and large medical groups, hospitals and integrated healthcare organizations, where the stakes for securing and protecting information are incredibly high. In this talk, we’ll discuss the technical challenges of implementing something as simple as secure passwords, from hashing itself, to hash function conversions to choosing the right encryption algorithms and protocols. We’ll explain emerging models for mobile device security. And finally, we’ll focus on the implications of security breaches.

As a global leader in the development of software for healthcare organizations, Epic is driving change for an entire industry – one that affects the quality of life for everyone. Our team collaborates with some of the world’s most respected healthcare organizations to improve both individual patient care and the health of entire communities.
