The American College of Radiology's (ACR) annual meeting was a pivotal moment for the Informatics Commission and the Cybersecurity Working Group. A robust two-hour hybrid cybersecurity workshop was attended by both in-person and remote participants from member, industry, and government. This workshop was a testament to the growing concern about the increasing number of cyberthreats to healthcare organizations.
In light of these growing concerns, the Informatics Commission has declared the education of members and radiology professionals in cybersecurity topics as a strategic priority. This is a significant step forward in the fight against cybercrime in the healthcare sector and highlights the importance of staying ahead of the curve in terms of cybersecurity.
The workshop was designed to educate attendees on the latest cybersecurity threats and provide them with the knowledge and tools they need to protect themselves, their patients, and their organizations. The robust attendance at the workshop is a clear indication of the increasing awareness of the importance of cybersecurity in the radiology community.
