By implementing a fluid strategy, rather than a 5-year plan, organizations are able to pivot quickly and reallocate resources based on changing needs, said Bradd Busick, CIO at MultiCare Health System. “That’s the magic in this process.”
As a leader, the one thing you never want to say is, “I can’t do that,” said Jesse Fasolo, CISO at St. Joseph’s Health. In a recent interview, he talked about the importance of a solid infrastructure, why frameworks are critical, and how he has been able to step “two steps ahead.”
