Conflicting priorities can complicate the relationship between the CIO and CISO. CIOs must drive business solutions faster than ever. Security, on the other hand, is often perceived as creating obstacles or processes that make a user’s life more difficult.

The threat landscape is changing and hackers have become much more dangerous and disruptive to healthcare. New and emerging attacks are more impactful because they interrupt services and communications.

In this opening state-of-the-industry discussion, our panel of seasoned healthcare security veterans survey the threat landscape and explain what they are doing to counter hackers. They’ll also discuss their top initiatives for the coming year.
