In this kick-off panel, senior security officers from leading healthcare organizations assess the state of the industry. Where are we, and where do we need to go? Where is healthcare falling short when it comes to securing data and protecting patient privacy - and where is it succeeding? What were their biggest initiatives in 2016, and what are their priority projects for 2017? From ransomware to insider threats to selling security to the board to BYOD, healthcare security leaders have their hands full.
In this session, our panelists will discuss how they’re juggling these myriad challenges, and what they see as the keys staying one step ahead of hackers and other threats.
