2019 CIE Summit Showcases Technology Helping People

Posted by Ford Winslow on Apr 23, 2019 5:54:20 PM

San Diego, CA - 211 San Diego's CIE Summit happening this week in San Diego will be a showcase of how people and technology can come together to help people and tackle some of the toughest challenges in society today. From homelessness and hunger prevention to regional disaster preparedness, teams from across the country will converge for three days to collaborate, share and innovate. 

Often, as technology and cybersecurity professionals, we are removed from the ultimate beneficiaries of our work. At the inaugural 2018 CIE Summit, we heard directly from those who are helping social services organizations in their communities across the country and learned what we could do to best serve them and provide the tools and services they need. It was an impressive collection of government, private, non-profit and public constituents committed to improving social indicators of health. 

This year's CIE Summit looks to be even better and more focused at connecting service organizations and the communities they serve. Along with traditional technology conversations around infrastructure and platforms for information sharing, the 2019 CIE Summit will delve deeply into Social Determinants of Health (SDOH) and the role of CIE Technology in moving to a person-centric, connected care model. 

In the increasingly complex and interconnected and distributed world of healthcare, it is a must for organizations to stay current on the latest in privacy, security and compliance.  We look forward to collaborating with the social services community on how organizations' privacy and security requirements are impacted by both new capabilities and new regulations.

Ransomware encrypts files and effectively locks users out of their computers and data. Those behind this type of cybersecurity attack then ask for money - ransom - in exchange for your data. It is estimated that 7.4 million new malware programs will be released in 2017. That’s about 850 per hour.
