It starts with hiring “hardcore cloud animals,” to change the culture and rethink infosecs role in patient experience. Hospitals have spent years implementing firewalls and security controls to establish a perimeter.

CISOs and security experts shared experience and insights about where healthcare is going, and what executives need to be thinking about today to make it happen.
