Steve Crocker, CISO at Methodist Le Bonheur Healthcare, says after receiving a full briefing from IT security, business leaders should make the final decision on how much risk they want to accept.
There’s a confluence of challenging factors facing health systems today when it comes to retaining cyber professionals. First, there’s not enough of them to fill open requirements. Then, there’s daily “stop everything” mandatory patches. Finally, work-from-anywhere has created much broader competition for talent. So, how do you hire and retain staff, keep them motivated, and secure your organization during times like these? We’ll talk to three current and former healthcare executives about challenges and practical solutions.
The key to cyber success is having team security on team patient safety, not the other way around, according to Martin Fisher, CISO at Northside Hospital in Georgia.
A huge part of what IT executives do is manage vendor relationships. If done right, those relationships yield the best of what the product or service provider has to offer, while doing it at a fair price to the organization. If done wrong, these relationships can sap the vitality of the health system, leaving it in a weakened position when it comes to serving its own customers. In this important webinar, we’ll speak to leaders who have made turning key vendors into partners a focus of their leadership efforts, and in the process have often gotten the best out of these companies.
Covid-19, and the subsequent great resignation, has exacerbated the staffing shortages hospital IT departments have always experienced. Unfortunately, with an ever-increasing thirst for technologies to optimize clinical and business operations, the need for talent is higher than ever. In this timely webinar, we’ll speak to healthcare leaders who have leveraged staffing firms. These leaders will identify the areas they found suited for outside help, how they went about procuring it, and the lessons learned along the way.
