Operationalzing Security: Assessing Risk and Reducing Fear

June 11, 2018
3:50pm - 4:25pm
Grand Ballroom

In this session, security executives from two leading Bay Area healthcare organizations discuss the keys to creating strong resilient security programs that enable digital transformation and facilitate organizational business goals.

John Muir Health Vice President and CISO Tom August, in addition to his many years leading healthcare security teams, co-authored The CISO Handbook: a Practical Guide to Securing Your Company.  El Camino Hospital CIO Deb Muro has lead large technology implementation projects and, over the past two years, has built El Camino’s security program from the ground up.

Both Tom and Deb strongly support using risk assessments to identify, prioritize, and address vulnerabilities, and they’ll share with attendees best practices for doing just that.

Key takeaways:

  • How a risk-based approach to security eliminates the fear factor, strips away the hype, and maximizes resources and mitigation efforts.
  • Successful approaches on how to talk to senior leadership in a way that generates ongoing support.
  • Best practices for creating resilient security programs that overcome incidences quickly, protect patients and keep the business up and running.
