PRIVACY & SECURITY FORUM: A HIMSS EVENT
San Francisco, CA - May 11 - 12, 2017
When it comes to healthcare information security, few have a bigger threat landscape to secure than George DeCesare, senior vice president and chief technology risk officer for Kaiser Permanent. As of 2016, Kaiser had had 10.2 million health plan health members, 186,497 employees, 18,652 physicians, 51,010 nurses, 38 medical centers, 622 medical offices, and $60.7 billion in operating revenue.
DeCesare leads the healthcare giant’s cyber security, technology risk and compliance, and identity and access management initiatives. He makes sure that as healthcare grows increasingly dependent on technology and digital information, Kaiser Permanente remains innovative, proactive, and agile in managing its information technology risks.
In his opening keynote, DeCesare will explain how he leads the charge to do just that. In a talk peppered with best practices and practical advice, DeCesare will examine healthcare’s current threat landscape and give a high-level overview of how Kaiser approaches cyber security, manages risk and communicates those risks to board members in business terms they understand.
