With budgets getting tighter and the cybersecurity talent pool shrinking, it’s time for a “paradigm shift,” according to Nate Lesser, CISO at Children’s National. During a recent webinar, he talked about how an integrated incident response strategy focused on training, communication, and collaboration has helped strengthen the organization’s security posture.
With the increasing volume, sophistication, and intensity of cyber-attacks, hospitals need a paradigm shift to keep from being overwhelmed. Information security teams are constantly being asked to master these challenges while simultaneously reducing costs. Even without factoring in budget constraints, hiring enough staff qualified cybersecurity defenders is nearly impossible. This talk will present code dark – a novel approach to expanding the ranks of cybersecurity first responders and the other force-multipliers implemented by Children’s National Hospital.
The ability to leverage metrics in the context of risk management has helped organizations like Children’s National Hospital secure much-needed investments, said CIO Matt MacVey during a recent discussion. “It’s been a game-changer.”
