HEALTHCARE SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT

Boston, MA
Sheraton Boston Hotel
Sep. 11-13, 2017

Strategy is the Best Security

September 12, 2017
2:05pm - 2:35pm
Constitution A

As vice president of privacy and information security, and general counsel for UPMC, an $11 billion integrated delivery network, John Houston focuses on “what’s going on today” but he’s equally concerned with “what do I have to worry about in 12 to 36 months related to security?”

Houston’s rolling three-year strategic plan harmonizes with UPMC’s overall business goals. It considers the organization’s strategic roadmap, and aligns security initiatives accordingly. Whether it’s moving to the cloud, endpoint security (how can we better connect and protect?), or vendor management, Houston’s strategic plan addresses “what we need to be successful.” He also reviews the plan regularly to realign priorities to meet the organization’s changing needs and to “get back on track” when necessary.

When it comes to security, Houston calls creating a strategic plan “an important concept,” and in this session, he’ll explain to attendees now to create a plan that meets organizational needs.
