Tri-State MSSF

The challenges of securing healthcare don't get any easier over time. Rising digitalization, adoption of AI and ML, a massive growth in the number of medical and other HIoT devices, and an IT & IS workforce now largely working from home, all introduce additional challenges for CISOs and CIOs.

In the Tri-State area this is compounded by the competition for scarce security resources. Lured by the lucrative salaries and stock options of the New York financial services sector, the problem is becoming acute. How can security leaders attract and retain quality security staff and keep their skills sharp enough to defend against sophisticated attacks when budgetary pressures might otherwise suggest the formation of a team of security generalists?

This was the topic of my discussion panel today with Tim Buntz, Chief of Security at Virtua Health, Esmond Kane, CISO of Steward Health, and Michael Archuleta, CIO of Mt. San Rafael Hospital.
