It’s Cybersecurity Awareness Month! In healthcare, safeguarding cybersecurity is safeguarding patients. Whether it’s a hospital, health system, physician group, or a trusted digital health partner, when healthcare is attacked, patients are at risk.
Join us all month as we feature some of healthcare’s fiercest defenders. They’re leaders from across the ecosystem fighting to protect data, systems, and care delivery. Join us to hear how they started, why they chose healthcare, and their advice for other leaders in their spaces.
Today’s featured healthcare defender is Catherin Bertrand (Catie), Clearwater’s Manager of Privacy and Compliance. Over 25 years ago, Catie started her career in compliance and spent the last 15 years in healthcare. She’s served as a HIPAA compliance officer for health systems and has been with Clearwater for five years helping organizations across the healthcare ecosystem grow their privacy and compliance programs.
Why privacy in the middle of cybersecurity awareness month? Because while the two are often separate roles in larger organizations, the two often go hand-in-hand. As Catie points out, in the event of a breach, regulatory issues are quick to follow. Hear more about Catie’s experience and her take on healthcare privacy in this quick interview.
Cybersecurity is patient safety. Do your part, be a healthcare defender.
