Learning, Sharing, & Connecting

Gateway to Security was an apt theme for this Summit because right out of the gate over 100 attendees from 18 countries shared threat and vulnerability information and mitigation strategies to help secure the global healthcare ecosphere. Feedback was extremely positive and there is already buzz around next year’s European Summit in Athens, Greece. Help set the agenda on the Summit Content Committee.
