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.
