Today’s security leaders and their staff are becoming healthcare’s new super heroes. They’re expected to know all and respond at the speed of light. And while this may seem impossible, rest assured, super hero-like abilities are accessible to regular people – people like you.

In this session, a seasoned security veteran will dive into three big struggles most security leaders grapple with today, and follow up with key takeaways for success.

Superman/Wonder Woman

  • How to transition from Clark Kent to Superman or Diana Prince to Wonder Woman - “How do I balance the business needs and security concerns?”

The Flash

  • The Flash possess "super speed" which includes the ability to run, move, and think extremely fast. - “How do I keep up with the fast pace changes in today’s ever-changing security landscape?”

Justice League

  • Greater than the sum of their awe-inspiring parts, the Justice League handles threats too massive for any single hero. “How do I build a solid governance structure including overall strategy and processes to include obtaining executive buy in?”

YOU (Key takeaways)

  • Understand and align with the business needs.
  • Wear the mask - share the mask.
  • Don’t try and be the hero alone.
  • Mask your data – Role-based access; use layered security methods.
  • Unleash your powers – The most successful security leaders are those who implement governance and security protocols in a non-aggressive manner, allowing the organization to retain the speed and agility needed to deliver meaningful business decisions.
